You can start from a USB device pressing the "c" key at boot time. Startup key combinations for Mac

It looks like your Windows system was hibernated and not actually shut down. That causes issues for Linux's ntfs3g driver. So, you need to boot back into Windows and shut it down cleanly. In their infinite wisdom, the Microsoft developers decided to make it hard for users to shut down their machines. According to this site, you need to: Mouse over ...

I just upgraded to Win 10 from Win 7, and the update manager did not bother on touching grub or other partitions. It just upgraded its own partition. I used the Microsoft Media Creation Tool to upgrade. (I was impatient)

Yes, but frankly you would be better off using a windows 7 disk and repairing. I presume you have tried starting in "safe mode" ? "logging" ? Otherwise your first step should be copying off your user files. Does the maker have a diagnostics CD or .iso you can use ? You need to identify any hardware failure and address this before trying to repair or ...

You Ubuntu install should not be affected, but you will need to reinstall GRUB by manually booting into Ubuntu using your BIOS boot menu, and running this command in Terminal: sudo grub-install /dev/sda

I think the upgrade will surely replace GRUB and the windows bootloader will not recognize ubuntu so you will have to repair it by booting from ubuntu liveusb and running boot-repair tool. I don't think the ubuntu partition will be affected.

You can not run this file on a Windows system! Never. No chance. As you can see in the output of file, it says ELF 32-bit LSB executable, [...] for GNU/Linux 2.6.24. ELF is the format for compiled binary executables Linux uses, and it even tells you that this program is written for a Linux kernel 2.6.24 (which seems pretty old, as well as the CPU ...

Using gparted you should be able to select the ntfs partitions you want to delete and delete them - Once deleted you have to format the unpartitioned space into ext4 or fat32 (again using gparted) - If you dont want to completely remove windows you can shrink the windows partition down using diskmgmt.msc from windows If you decide to completely remove ...

Legacy boot can be turned off after the install is completed - it is only for the usb boot support. UEFI boot is the problem, I'm pretty sure changing that may corrupt the win bootloader. Can't really help you there - re-install? During the install I believe fast boot and secure boot is what you want to disable in the BIOS. I'm pretty sure I put both UEFI ...

Perhaps the easiest way that comes to my mind is to enable SSH (no adb, no developer mode) on your Ubuntu Touch device and transfer your files using WinSCP

Using the Ubuntu installation disk, you can format the drive to ntfs. First, open the gparted application. Next, right click on each of the partitions listed one by one and select delete to delete each one until you have nothing but free space listed. Then, right click on the "free space" select "new" and select partition type "primary" and set the format ...

If you download and install the 64 bit version from here and install it from a USB, simply choose the option you are presented with to delete everything and replace with Ubuntu. The installer will take care of the partitioning for you.

You should be able to install AMD Catalyst Control Centre on Ubuntu as well. If you need to download it and update it manually you can use the sudo dpkg --install package_file command in the terminal. "package_file" here being the name of the file you are trying to install.

Ubuntu should work OK with this laptop. You can test it first by booting from LiveCD. You can install Catalyst Control Center and switch adapters in Ubuntu. It is done by running in terminal sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates Or it can be done in GUI System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers But you will have to switch adapters ...

just unmount the iso you used. The problem is the virtual box boots from the iso file you added not from the virtual harddisk

I just created a vm for WinXP and it attached the hdd as IDE, on your image is attached as SATA.

You have a UEFI capable machine, and is sounds like you did a full install to the USB stick. You select whether you are running in UEFI mode in the UEFI Settings/BIOS (not the legacy or compatiblity setting). You did not have the USB present when you ran boot report, so we can't tell how it was created, but for UEFI, at a minimum it should have an EFI ...

The drivers should be included with the standard linux kernel and there should be nothing to install. Unlike windows, most drivers are included in the mainline kernel. You will notice you don't have to wait for "installing device drivers" every time you plug something into the USB port. That is not to say that you will never need to install any firmware ...

You can go ahead and do this. It won't (meaning shouldn't!) hurt anything, but to be on the safe side, you might want to make a dedicated directory for Windows sharing: In Terminal: sudo mkdir /home/WIN sudo chown [username]:[username] Then share /home/WIN instead of /home. That would be safer, and if needed, you can put symbolic links in /home/WIN/ ...

Probably the easiest thing to do is to completely forgo RAID and to do this: 1) Use Windows Disk Defragment to clean up the drive 2) Use GParted to shrink the Windows partition to 200GB (From now on, follow only #a, or only #b instructions, but not both) 3a) In the Ubuntu installer select 'Install alongside Windows 7' if it's available 3b) If it's not ...

If I understand the question correctly, you want to access the internet from Ubuntu while using the Windows XP guest OS as your interface to the 3G card? If so, then you can try this: 1) In VirtualBox, configure a host only ethernet adaptor for Windows XP 2) Turn on ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) in Windows XP, see ...

If you want to get GRUB working again, you could start a Ubuntu Live System (via a LiveUSB, DVD, etc) and run sudo update-grub to re-install the GRUB bootloader.

Your problem is that your Windows installation is in EFI mode, but your disk is configured with a hybrid MBR, which forces Windows to treat the disk as an MBR disk. The Mac boot loader might also be taking this as a signal to attempt a BIOS-mode boot of Windows, but there's no BIOS-mode boot loader on the disk. Since Windows will boot in EFI mode only from a ...

Even though Grub replaces Windows boot manager, it shouldn't be an issue as it'll recognize your Windows installation and add boot entry. On the other hand, if you installed Windows after Linux mint, it would wipe out grub AND not give option to boot to linux. If you still need Win boot mgr to load first, you can do so easily with EasyBCD - ...

This happens because windows 8 has an enabled hybrid boot by default to make it boot faster. Try disable it using instruction from the link http://www.techulator.com/resources/5201-How-enable-or-disable-Hybrid-Boot-Windows.aspx. You should be able to access your partition.

You might have to give more details on how exactly are you unable to access your ubuntu. One of the problems might be with your grub loader. A grub menu basically lists all the available operating systems installed in your computer. You might have to install a custom grub so that you can get the access to grub menu. "When you install Windows, Windows ...

An error message during Windows 10 Insider Preview installation is your least concern, registration for this program is closed for now, new installations will not get activated. You need to get Windows 8 back onto your device and in order to take advantage of the Windows 10 upgrade offer that will be available in a few days. Call your HP customer support ...

There is no difference to copy an exe-file or a png-file. Nothing of them will be corrupted if you copy the files between an ext4 filesystem and a ntfs filesystem. I assume, your exe file isn't really an exe file. Check it with file your_exe


2

There is no such thing. The executable should be compiled for Windows, which should be the case unless you compiled it yourselves and gave it a .exe extension.

One of the function keys F8, F10, F11, or F12 should give you the boot menu options when the machine is booting up. Just pick the right disk and it should boot the OS on that disk. You might have to set the bios to allow for on-the-fly boot disk selection, it can be disabled sometimes. Since you have the OSs installed on two separate disks, then the BIOS ...

Yes, it is possible. Since you've Windows 8.1 already installed, just start the installer of Ubuntu and proceed. It should detect Windows 8.1 and offer an option to install Ubuntu too.

If your laptop came pre-installed with Windows, it can most likely be restored via recovery partition (unless you deleted it while formatting with Lubuntu). All Windows 8 devices are poised to get free Windows 10 upgrade a few weeks from now. Besides, Microsoft has told users not to clean install insider builds of windows 10 as it won't get activated. ...

try to fix it from commandline with sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdc1 unless your windows is hibernated: in this case, as Rinzwind suggested you, boot in Windows and shut down properly. Cheers, Silvia

No , Office 2013/365 won't work with lastest wine although the Office installer is begining to work with lastest wine git code. The best option for you is to use Win7/virtualbox in seamless mode.

When selecting from which drive to boot, you have both UEFI and non-UEFI Boot Repair. You have to start UEFI Boot Repair, then you can repair grub. Edit: Steps to reproduce: Install Linux + Bootloader on sdb Install Windows on sda Start Boot Repair in UEFI mode and repair grub

last time I tried in Ubuntu (maybe 10.04 or 10.10) ... it mounted in /media/UUID. this might not help, but in latest linux mint, it is /media/username/UUID. anyway, you can always run 'mount' command in terminal with normal user and without any arguments, it will tell you where your partition are mounted. sample output (in this case, my UUID is ...

You can install Windows and just don't re-format the Ubuntu Partition. (If its the whole disk, shrink it down and make space for windows) Windows will delete Grub bootloader tho, so after installing windows use this tool to re-create GRUB bootloader http://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/ Then use GParted to shrink a partition down and format the ...

Is it possible to open up Ubuntu and read a .docx file from my Windows partition? Certainly. Are there any non-obvious ramifications for doing so (corrupting files, unable to access partition, etc)? Well, the MS Office file formats aren't the best supported, so you might cause some unexpected change if you wrote to the file. The NTFS driver is ...

If you have no data on the hdd (which seems to be the case) do the following. Please note that any and all existing data on the drive will be destroyed after executing the following list.

Loading Ubuntu on a different HD avoids the problem of having to choose between Windows and Unbuntu - instead you choose the startup device which appears to be far easier. FWIW I successfully installed Unbuntu 15.04 (from a CD burned with the 15.04 image) on a T520i with Windows 7 (professional) (64 bit - that may have made the difference). Also probably ...

To disable cards in software install Bumblebee. This will install bbswitch for you. See the usage section hereto disable the card. Do not build from here unless you know what you're doing. If the first link doesn't install bbswitch, try this.

The easiest way of disabling the nVidia card in Ubuntu (and is also the way I'm running until I need it) is to go to your BIOS and disable it there. (It will say something like On-board graphics or Intel integrated) That way, all the drivers are still installed and whenever you need the power of the nVidia, you just reboot, go into the BIOS and enable it ...

I thoroughly disagree. I recently installed Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview, build 10158, and went on to reinstall GRUB, and it works fine. I am dual booting Arch Linux and Windows 10. os-prober certainly detects Windows. Though I am not sure if these are necessary, but mount you Windows 10 partition (/dev/sdxZ) before os-prober. Install Grub Customizer ...

Thanks to Organic Marble and Thomas W. for helping me solve this. Apparently Grub doesn't support the Windows 10 Technical Preview so you have to add the grub menu entry manually. Open /etc/grub.d/40_custom as root with gedit or another text editor. Then you have to add an entry at the end of the file. Mine looked like this. 'Windows 10 Technical ...

Windows uses CR+LF for line breaks. In Linux/Unix you need LF. Therefore you have to replace CR+LF into LF in your script: Install dos2unix sudo apt-get install dos2unix And correct your script via dos2unix <your_script_file> or via dos2unix -n <your_script_file> <out_file> if you need a different output file More informations ...

Windows and Linux have different end-of-line symbols. You can install the dos2unix utility that fixes it: sudo apt-get install dos2unix Run it this way: dos2unix -n winfile.txt linuxfile.txt There is also the unix2dos utility. The Windows-to-Linux conversion can also be done without installing any special software by tr -d '\r' < winfile.txt ...

On Windows, you need to change the End of Line (EOL) format in Notepad++ to UNIX: That way it will work on Ubuntu too.
