Had same problem after installing Ubuntu 14.04 to dual boot with Windows XP. Solved by going into Bios and making boot drive the Ubuntu drive. A restart brought up the grub 2 screen with options for Ubuntu and XP. I've been using this method and so far no problems with either choice.

I had the same issue. I installed Windows 8 on a GPT formatted disk and when I tried to install Ubuntu 13.10 it didn't even recognize Windows existed. You must format your disk to the mbr format to have Ubuntu recognize windows. This is because the GPT partition format does not gel with Ubuntu that well though you can install it. Here's what I did that ...

Yes, if you first install the Wine compatibility layer from the Software Center, you can install Windows applications in Ubuntu. Be warned though that not all applications work perfectly or without glitches. Some applications are even unusable, while others work perfectly (see the Wine Application Database for a good idea of how well various programs work). ...

Linux is not Windows, and we cannot guarantee that your programs will work at all (much less whether they will work without lag). You can try it with PlayOnLinux, CrossOver and/or Wine.

I have Ubuntu 12.04 running alongside windows 8.1 with no problems. I created the Ubuntu USB boot pen then, from within windows, I clicked restart while holding down shift. This presents different troubleshooting options. I selected boot from USB pen and the machine rebooted from the USB pen. In the BIOS settings (OK UEFI settings, I can't help saying BIOS ...

Yes, it is possible to boot Windows 8 in UEFI mode, even if you installed it on a legacy partitioned disk (MS-DOS/MBR). Of course you would need a UEFI compatible GRUB installation on another GPT partitioned disk. In Windows, install a new boot configuration to volume C: by running the following command: bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f uefi When booted in ...

When using windows 8 OS, there are lot of ways to speed up the system performance Really? How? All I know is that you can Refresh: something you don't need to do in Linux Defragmentation: You very rarely need defragmentation, I've been using linux for about 7 years and never defraged a disk. Viruses: very few run in Linux, you don't need an antivurus, ...

First thing is , even in windows, there is no such thing as optimizing program. all they is use the utility that come packed with windows. They defragment the system, delete the temporary files, cookies, things like that. They only make a fool out of the novices. So do not pay for such softwares under windows. Use CCleaner and occassionally defragment your ...

There's not really any programs to increase performance in Linux. There's Bleachbit, that cleans cookies, cache, and other stuff, but doesn't really speed anything up. Linux is just supposed to be fast as is. So whatever speed Ubuntu is giving you now is probably the speed you're stuck with.

Most computers let you disable Secure Boot without enabling BIOS/CSM/legacy-mode booting. Look for an option to enable you to do this. With Secure Boot off, you should be able to install Ubuntu in EFI mode; or you can use rEFInd, on a CD-R or USB flash drive, to boot Ubuntu in EFI mode. That done, installing the Debian package should enable you to choose ...

Please if possible make backups of your data on your external USB drive, you could loose all data due to mistake (close lid and suspend), error/bug or hardware issue. It should (assuming reliability and enough space) be possible to resize the partition with your data on, to make space for Ubuntu. You can do this before installing (How to resize ...

That is not a Partition problem. It just means that Windows 8 was closed in a unsafe way (Power down while using Windows, You hibernated or suspended the Windows 8 session or any other option than shutting down Windows the normal way). In Windows 8, Microsoft introduced a "new" feature when shutting down that it actually not shutdown the PC but hibernated ...

"mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option." read only means you can extract the files from it. So why not follow that advice if all you want is to extract the files? Command would be something like this: sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/dugi/Store -o ro,noatime (mind the ro for readonly and none of the options in -o can have spaces ...

After you fixed the Windows boot files with bootrec /fixmbr, bootrec /rebuildbcd and /fixboot commands, you have to run boot-repair.It will install grub2 on your disk and make the appearance of both Ubuntu and Windows options on startup(Grub screen).

Using the standard Windows disk partitioning tool to create partitions for Linux is risky at best. There are several problems with this tool, but the biggest for your scenario is that, when you create a layout that holds more than four partitions, it will convert the disk into one that uses the Logical Disk Manager (LDM, aka "dynamic disks"). At least, ...

It is vital for all systems running Windows 8 in UEFI mode to have fast boot and hibernated shutdown turned off, as well as fast boot in the UEFI. This keeps you from losing data on your Windows install. I feel like I keep giving this same answer over and over again, but c'est la vie: First off, you cannot run dual boot configuration with Windows 8 in ...

For the sake of completeness. 14.04 works on Hyper-V generation 2. Among other things kernel version 3.13 is required for generation 2. I am using it myself and it works nicely. You might want to set the screen resolution manually though, as mode setting in the usual way is not yet supported by the hyperv_fb kernel module. This can be archived by opening ...

Take the hard drive out of your laptop. This should allow you to get into the UEFI. If that does not work, the instructions (take from the VAIO User Guide) to get into the UEFI are as follows: Press the ASSIST button while your VAIO computer is off. The VAIO Care Rescue Mode screen appears. Select Start BIOS setup. Enter a password if it has already been ...

Apparently, OpenGL doesn't work on Windows 8 guests yet. I"ve installed Windows 7; according to GLView, my OpenGL version is 2.1 Chromium 1 now. The Corona SDK's Welcome Screen isn't getting rendered, though. I'll look into it, and if I need further assitance, I'll ask again.

Ok I found the answer. When running on windows client the first time you run juju bootstrap it creates an environments folder, which contains the .jenv file. What this means if you later change the .yaml file the changes may not be copied over into the .jenv file. So if having trouble you must delete the .jenv/environments folder after each change to the ...

No you can't and neither you should. The fastboot feature is called as hybrid shutdown. It can be seen as partial hibernation and partial shut down. In simple words, It takes a snapshot of current memory and stores to disk to be used on next start up. A good explanation can be found here - ...

I've had this issue before, and It turned out to be from the BIOS. You should enable VirtualMachine support from the bios setup. I hope that this what is preventing your 64 from showing up.

In my experience that usually means a damaged virtual disk, but in your case it could also be settings related. I noticed your settings don't list anything under acceleration. It would also be helpful if you mentioned whether this was a pre-built machine, or if you installed Ubuntu yourself. Screenshot of VirtualBox 4.3.6 Default Unaltered Settings For ...

On my Samsung Series 9, changing the booting order (promoting "ubuntu" in first position) did not work: the order with the Windows Boot Loader in first position was restored after every reboot.

If you have preinstalled Windows 8, your probably have a UEFI Bios system, in which case the safest way to install ubuntu in my opinion is to switch the UEFI to Legacy. If you already attempted to install Windows 8 without the boot switch step, I would backup my data, repair or recover windows 8 then try install ubuntu after Legacy boot enabled. If you ...

There are two types of "fast boot" options: In Windows -- This option, generally called Fast Startup, Hybrid Boot, or Hybrid Shutdown, turns a shutdown operation into a suspend-to-disk operation. As such, it leaves filesystems in an inconsistent state, which means that they will be, at best, ignored by Linux or other OSes. At worst, they'll be mounted and ...

Bootsect is for MBR drives, since you have Windows 8 I would assume you are using UEFI. Before doing a repair you should find out how many UEFI partitions you have and where the Ubuntu one is currently stored or you might end up unable to boot Ubuntu or Windows.

It's possible that the Boot Repair utility will fix this problem; however, it's important that you boot this tool in EFI mode. (Running it from a live CD is fine.) Booting it in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode is likely to either not work or create a very hackish fix that might create more problems than it solves. To ensure that you've booted in EFI mode, open a ...

It's because Ubuntu uses "UTC" Rather than "Local time" by default, this can be fixed by opening a terminal and running sudo nano /etc/default/rcS and changing UTC=yes to UTC=no
