The way you can do is here : http://tinyurl.com/mdpfzpo Also you can read : For the first question this link might help you a little bit http://tinyurl.com/q6tm77t If you'll install the bootloader on USB, then the USB will have to be always plugged in whenever the computer starts.

If both Windows are in primary partitions, you can repair install to be directly bootable from grub. But not possible if an install is in a logical partition as Windows only boots from primary partitions. Second installs of Windows normally overwrite the boot files in the existing NTFS primary partition with the boot flag. And it adds both installs to its ...

First of all you should note that you are going to install Ubuntu on a second hard drive and not on the same disk alongside, Thus you shouldn't care if Ubuntu can show the Windows or not, since the booting option now is not controlled in the Ubuntu boot Manager which is called GRUB. The booting option now is controlled by your system BIOS, so that you have ...

If you're using PlayOnLinux with WINE, each program usually has its own virtual folder, meaning that only the program that the virus comes from will be affected. - With PlayOnLinux, you're pretty safe. If you're using WINE without PlayOnLinux, a virus could affect all programs that are running inside WINE. - WINE without PlayOnLinux could be vulnerable, but ...

Did you format the EFI partition while installing Xubuntu? If yes then it might have removed the windows boot loader from the EFI partition.

The reason why you can't see your NAS, its broadcast can't reach your virtual machine when using NAT. Think as your virtual machine is behind a router. The best is what Mr.Gosh recommends (bridged networking). Another option is to enter your NAS IP directly from the virtual machine (If you know its IP or it's static)

Did you try disabling Hybrid Boot and UEFI boot? http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/6320-fast-startup-turn-off-windows-8-a.html http://itsfoss.com/disable-uefi-secure-boot-in-windows-8/

Switch to "bridged networking" - than you'll get an IP of your LAN subnet in your virtual machine and therefore can connect to your NAS.

Wubi runs like a windows program. I've not had much experience with it, but I know that it does not need or make its own partition. It simply installs into the c: (or wherever). In my experience, the best way to install a dual boot is to boot up from the ubuntu USB, and then (if everything is working) install from there. This will give you the option to ...

I am the maintainer of two games on Wine HQ. So I can tell from experience. Gaming Under Wine is not that BAD. I maintain NFS Hot Pursuit and NFS Most Wanted on Wine HQ and most reviews are positive on Wine. Being an Game Maintainer I can understand what Wine can and cant do. Most games that are more than 4-5 years old have high chance of running well ...

The right-click pop-up is almost certainly copying the .iso file to disk as a file in a filesystem, instead of actually filling the CD with it AS the filesystem. Try using something like K3b to burn it as an ISO image instead.

How is configured the network on Ubuntu ? with network-manager ? You can check that the Ubuntu PC and the windows one are on the same network. sudo apt-get install arp-scan sudo arp-scan -I eth0 -l this will give you a list of all IP on the LAN Next, you can try to ping the windows pc And finally check if the route are correct.

it seems to me that Samba share isnt installed on your linux box. Neither are the corresponding client dependencies installed of it.

Quoted from https://gameplayjdk.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/ubuntu-the-big-mystery-about-wubi-explained-19-04-2014/ Canonical has stopped the official support and promotion of wubi for all Ubuntu versions past 12.10.

The answer is no. There is no wubi in new Ubuntu releases. If you want to install Ubuntu into Windows, you can use Virtualbox instead.

You might need to try booting manually into linux by opening the BIOS boot menu, probably F2 key right after startup (just press it repeatedly until you get that. Use a different key if that's not it). Once you're in linux, you will have to run sudo update-grub That should do it. You may also have to change the default boot device to the partition ...

Despite some of the comments made here, wine is not up to playing modern games. Check this database: https://appdb.winehq.org/ for any titles you would like to play. I recommend dual boot, not without a lack of trying to the contrary. James

Most software is available as a .deb package. You could download that, save it somewhere Ubuntu could find it, and use that to install the application. However, if there are any dependencies not already installed or included in the .deb, then you'll have trouble. A better plan is to fix the WiFi. You might need internet access to do that, but surely you ...

I think the premise of the question is probably a little hard to substantiate because they are different operating systems with quite different models for installing software so it's hard to do an apples to apples comparison. I don't think one can be so general as to say Windows always slows down and Ubuntu never does. Here are some things that may ...

sda1 is the ESP and you need it to boot in EFI+GPT. sda2 is certainly a boot partition and hold your kernel, and yes you need it. LVM is tricky to shrink. Look at the previous ansver there: How can I resize an LVM partition? (i.e: physical volume)

I started winusb from console: sudo winusbgui then winusb detect my pendrive correctly, and I succesfully copied the Windows 7 installer to my pendrive (Ubuntu 14.10).

You might want to format your complete disk to NTFS format. Windows isn't very keen on anything else when it comes to installing it on your hard drive. With completely formatting it in NTFS (fx. with Gparted when in a Live CD session), you are also deleting GRUB. You should be able to boot into the Windows installer after that.

I prefer to use recode for this. It's not installed by default, but available through the package by the same name. It also changes CRLF line endings to LF. sudo apt-get install recode recode cp1250.. file.txt You can do this for all txt files in an entire dir recode cp1250.. ./*.txt And recursively by combining with find find . -type f -name "*.txt" ...

It's showing a lock sign because you don't have permissions to use the file. Fix it by changing the ownership to you with: sudo chown $USER:$USER /path/to/windows.iso or you could just chmod it so everyone can use the file: sudo chmod 777 /path/to/windows.iso

My solution was to install a 500 gig hdd in my dell e6430 install Ubuntu 15.10 and remove it. I reinstalled my ssd with win 10 tp. I have an external hdd usb cable I plug in. Then I hit f12 to temp. boot options and I can boot Ubuntu 15.10 or use my win 10 tp.

If the others don't work (as is my case), you'll likely find this will: cd /$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/gvfs/smb-share\:server=yourserver,share=yourshare/ Replace yourserver and yourshare appropriately. If you're using tab completion, beware of your shell incorrectly escaping out commas, dollar symbols and slashes. The colon, however, should be escaped.

This sounds like a regression. An Ubuntu bug report and upstream bug report has already been made for it. It might be best to set yourself as "affected" and ask what information is needed. also clearly state that this is a regression. Regressions get fixed faster. Workaround #1 You can try manually opening the share with nautilus (the file manager) ...

To my experience, the best way to use Office in Ubuntu is by just installing VirtualBox and make a new Windows virtual machine and install Office on it. From there, you have several options to integrate the Office apps more tightly in Ubuntu.

Wine is a windows "emulator" (more or less), you must install programs directly, not just copy the files as it emulates the registry too, however wine is no replacement for windows. It can be very hit and miss depending on the version of wine, the version of the program you want to install and many many other factors. Don't remove your Windows just yet, ...

The short answer to your question is No. All the windows applications out there are not compatible with wine. The best place to see if a particular windows application is compatible with wine is browsing/searching in WineAppDB. In addition there are certain DLLs that Wine does not support (for eg: copy protection etc.). Read Wine HowTo to get a detailed view ...

I agree with the first answer - Steam does work great with Linux, but some fonts and other graphical issues may crop up occasionally. By that I mean that the fonts on the "Updating" window appear more blocky and without anti-aliasing than the counterpart on Windows. Some games may not work correctly due to unimplemented functions in Wine - if you have a ...

Thanks for your thorough responses. I'll try those tomorrow (hours of fiddling with Grub got the best of me). In the mean-time I found a less ideal solution: in the CLI of GRUB I type: 'chainloader (hd0,1)+1' and then 'boot'. That were the commands to start Windows. It isn't as convenient as the normal way, but he, I settle for that at the moment. There ...
