This seems to be a bug in ubuntu open-vm-tools in combination with ubuntu 16.04. Vmware did notice the issue in the release notes of vmware player and workstation. I have tried several things but without luck. Reverting back to 14.04 seems to be the only solution at this point.

Windows 8 currently uses UEFI so it might be problematic with Wubi on Windows 8 so you have to download Rufus (fastest one that I have tested) and the ISO. Download Rufus: http://rufus.akeo.ie Since you have already the ISO File plug your USB Device in a fastest port possible to ensure that Rufus will install system files in a faster way. After plugging ...

Yes that's correct! You only erase and install on the disk you assign to this VM. You don't lose data on other disks.

Thats perfectly fine to choose and will not affect your windows installation in any way, this only sees the allocated file space you have created for the VM.

Upgrading Ubuntu will not affect Windows installation. But upgrading Windows may overwrite grub. It can be easily restored though.

I got the same problem when I ran smbclient \\\\[ip]\\[sharedresource] That command asks me to enter password for a root user, however when I entered the password, I received the NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE error. I added -U to specify my remote machine's username and it worked smbclient \\\\[ip]\\[sharedresource] -U [username]

This depends on whether 3rd party software is buggy. To resize a partition with data the software should do a complex (and, in case of NTFS, never published) trick to move parts of file system away from the end of partition. Can it do the thing right? Who knows...

Once you have installed wine, you can download the Windows version of steam and install it. Then you run this version of steam through wine and download your windows games. I have had mixed success with this approach, but in many cases it's better than dual booting.

I would recommend PlayOnLinux as a front end for Wine. To install PlayOnLinux run the following commands from a terminal window: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install playonlinux Note, PlayOnLinux installs Wine if it is not installed. After it is installed and you run it for the first time, you will see an application that looks like this: Click ...

From what i understand you don't want software like MultiBootUSB, YUMI or MultiSystem. You already installed WindowsToGo, all you need to do is create linux partition after Windows partition and install Lubuntu to it just like you would install it to any other hard-disk. Your USB drive will be probably listed as sdb, sdc, etc. Make sure you don't mistake it ...

If you machine is a UEFI machine, use the EFI menu which some function key at power-up brings up to select Windows. See superuser site for a permanent fix in changing the boot order in Windows. If a legacy machine, sometimes the recovery media is still not sufficient to reset the boot (all the instructions are assuming you can bring up a recovery ...

This might work with LUKS encrypted containers. You have to create one with cryptsetup -s 512 --hash sha256 luksFormat /dev/partitionNode (Soon to be released KDE Partition Manager 2.2 can also create luks partitions but at the moment you would have to compile it yourself) Then open your encrypted device with cryptsetup open /dev/partitionNode cryptName ...

Usually the Windows OEM Edition (preinstalled) comes with NO physical backup disk (CD/DVD/USB disk). For anti-piracy reasons. But it comes with a RECOVERY partition on the internal disk, containing all the Windows installation files. You can put those files in an ISO file, like this: MS-create bootable ISO from recovery Make sure you have a backup for ...

Assuming you have shared the folder in windows you can do this from terminal: mkdir -pv ~/mnt/share sudo mount -t cifs //192.168.1.188/media$ ~/mnt/share/ -o username=<username-you-have-on-windows-machine> You will then be prompted for the username you have for your windows user. After that you can find the contents of your share in ~/mnt/share/.

Setting up P2P systems like bittorrent is a PITA and problems seem to recur even after things start working (especially with port forwarding). Anything is possible, but it is very unlikely that your ISP even looks at your OS in this situation. The usual problem is port forwarding. Bittorrent uses a port for incoming requests from other peers. Usually, this ...

Yes. The technology for that is called VNC. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Network_Computing However, you will have to leave your Windows PC running over the night. An alternative to VNC is RDP. I also believe this here might help you as well: Is it possible to use remote desktop from Windows 7 to Ubuntu?

CPU control is done via inbuilt intel_pstate thats in the kernel. This effectively controls the CPU power as per need basis. Apart from that TLP as suggested above will help you optimize your system as per the power source. In battery mode it goes on saving mode and turns off turbo on CPU. In power mode all power saving optimizations are turned off. ...

Since MAAS 1.7 (released in November 2014) it supports more operating systems than just Ubuntu. From the release blog post: Specifically, MAAS can now provision Windows Server 2012 RT/Hyper-V, CentOS, RHEL, SLES, and OpenSUSE. The installation is done using the same single-pass mechanism used to deploy Ubuntu, typically providing the user with a running ...

There is a recovery partition for Windows, where are actually stored installation files. You can preserve this partition while installing Ubuntu.

The linux world offers less 'pseudo optimization tools' from my point of view What you might consider is - and that doesn't covers everything for sure: TLP regarding battery usage TLP brings you the benefits of advanced power management for Linux without the need to understand every technical detail.

Assuming you are sharing the Media folder on windows and that you have samba installed on your linux machine, you could, from nautilus do this. Go to Connect to Server and then in the server address, type: smb://192.168.1.188/Media That should opened the shared 'Media folder. It might pop you for credentials.

Have you tried the suggestion in this post? It could be an issue with GRUBs configuration. Unable to boot into Windows after installing Ubuntu, how to fix?

Do you have the Windows Bootable USB/DVD ? If yes, try to repair windows. People do face problems after dual booting Linux & Windows. Repairing might just work ! Another way, GRUB Option, as mentioned by @maxcampman

You have to wipe your hard drive to encrypt whole drive. So, Windows is not in your hard anymore. Windows and other data on the hard drive are been erased. If you want to Windows, you have to install it again.

It looks like this is an issue with Ubuntu 16.04 in particular. I switched to 14.04 and dual monitor now works.

As explained by others, dual boot will be a better option for you compared to completely wiping out your HDD. You will get best of both worlds. If you are considering this option, do not disturb your C drive(Windows 10 installation). Instead delete any other secondary drive for Ubuntu installation. Also as you don't have any installation disk provided ...

You can just run a partition with Windows installed as a second OS. It's not hard to do. I actually came from the other side, starting with Windows and partitioning to download Ubuntu 14.04

Go for the resizing and dual boot. Whenever you are comfortable with Ubuntu later, you can reinstall and go for it all the way. That's how I went. Started dual boot 2 year's ago on a W7, but when W10 came, and U14.04, I wiped the drive. Now looking to go to U16.04 soon.

In order to go back to Windows installation I would recommend to back it up using Clonezilla or from Windows use third party tool called Macrium Reflect. Using the backup you can go back any time you wish.

Did ASUS install Windows 10 on your machine as default Operating System? Or did you buy Win 10 in the Windows Store or get it as (free) upgrade from Win 7+? In the first case, you should have the product key around somewhere. Probably on a sticker on the device. You can re-activate the Windows installation with that key, in the same fashion as an older ...

Here is the latest update... I'm going to conclude that there is something amiss with 16.04. Noting what User542100 commented above I decided to download the 14.04 ISO and create a VM using that one. Not only did it respond when I hit "Enter" when prompted, but when it restarted and I logged in, the desktop loaded (in the 16.04 build, "turning off" the VM ...

It looks like you're doing fine, Hyper-V does not support audio to Linux guests. There is a lot of information on the internet that says to enable Enhanced Sessions in Hyper-V...but Enhanced Sessions are for Windows guests only.

I have the same problem. Running on a Surface Pro 4. Ubuntu 14.04 LTS works fine, but 16.04 LTS just sites there after entering my password. Hyper-V manager shows this taking around 24% of the CPU, so something is going on...

You're bang on with what happened. Discussing with other people, I'm realizing that dual booting Ubuntu and Windows 7 on a single SSD with a GPT partition table is not a diserable route to go down. Aparently MBR/legacy setup is the least problematic. I reinstalled everything that way, works now like a charm. Thanks for your time.

I have answered my own question. I had been shutting down my computer between sessions. It seems that restarting instead of shutting down after windows made the difference.

sudo ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda3 /media/nick/426268B36268AD7B If it does not work try: sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda3 Then try to mount again You may need to install some of these components like: sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g This could be risky but usually goes well.

Looks like a UEFI capable machine, running Windows 8 in legacy mode on an MSdos partition table disk got an UEFI Ubuntu install, instead of a legacy mode install (you select the mode in the BIOS/UEFI settings). There is an EFI partition at the end of the disk, sda8, but it contains no bootloaders, neither Ubuntu, nor Windows, but it now has the boot flag. ...

For the Lenovo G70-70 the answer is: reinstall Windows and the Lenovo Power Manager.

Probably the upgrade to new UEFI reset all the UEFI parameters. I keep a list of changes, so I know what to reset after a UEFI update. But you do not have an UEFI entry in UEFI for Windows. It normally saves the UEFI boot entries in its own NVRAM which is normally lost only if you disconnect a drive. Your system is also not showing sda other than it has ...

Your disk has no boot loaders. My educated guess about what happened, based on your description, is: You installed Ubuntu in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode. When you tried to install Windows 7, you booted in EFI/UEFI mode, so it complained about the MBR partition table and you converted it to GPT and installed Windows in EFI/UEFI mode. This would have rendered ...

Parts of this answer comes from: How to recover deleted partition table information and I would point @Prash to that question in first instance but nobody saw my previous answer useful so I place it here just in case you may wish to give this a chance.

From the Arch Wiki for this device: When the SATA-controller is set to "RAID On" in Bios, the hard disk (at least the SSD) is not recognized. Set to "Off" or "AHCI" before attempting to install Arch.
