Linux partition will not show up in Windows. Windows uses NTFS which cannot find ext4 which Ubuntu uses. There is a program called ext2read which can find Linux Partition in Windows. Link https://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2read/?source=dlp

You will be better off in the future if primary OS is backed up prior to installation of another. First, preferably, we have to discover a path that let us boot you into Windows. Assuming that Lubuntu filesystem has not overwritten any bit of Windows (highly probable) and GRUB is installed with Lubuntu on default you can let os-prober do the job. Check ...

I assume you're using grub to handle your dual boot. If you just deleted the ubuntu partition, grub would still be installed. You'll have to fix the bootloader by having windows overwrite the MBR. There's a way to do it here Or you could just put up with grub and never ever ever boot into ubuntu at startup. I was lazy and did this for a while.

When you installed did you install a bootloader? Try rebooting into the liveUSB, and choose Try ubuntu. Once you've done that, open a Terminal and type the following to install Boot-Repair. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair boot-repair After doing that, it should open ...

nautilus may be invoked with the --geometry=800x300+200+100 for a window size of 800 wide by 300 pixels tall. The positioning of 200 pixels X offset from right and 100 pixels Y from top, will be ignored, unless you are root (bug 1543345). The man page for nautilus specifies the --geometry= switch, and the man page for X defines how the geometry is ...

Does it detect your usb when it is booted to Windows? 'Cause if it doesn't you might have a hardware problem so you should go to nearest asus tech center to repair it. Otherwise, it could be your bios setting preventing booting from usb. Check all boot order, scurity setting, bootable port. If neither is your case, try using live-cd as specified in above ...

Windows does take some of your info but it is for bug fixing and info that you might worry about being taken away is not being taken away. For example your name is Ivan, is that creditial? Probably not. Windows takes minimal information and it is only about your system not your credit card number so do not worry. And even so you say you want to install ...

This is defiantly possible! You have to have a spare partition or drive for Windows to install on in the first place. The tricky part is that Windows as you stated does not "like" to be installed alongside Ubuntu. The problem is that when installing Windows aside a Ubuntu system it will override Grub with the Windows boot loader, which makes Ubuntu ...

Once you have deleted the partition, it's gone forever. Unless you have made a backup of the partition, then you can't get it back.

I would recommend downloading a new version of Ubuntu, and downloading Rufus. Rufus creates bootable USB sticks with whatever ISO you put on it. You get to choose whether or not it is bootable, and it will format the stick for you before hand. There is not another way to run the installer from the USB that I am aware of. If you can get a new ISO this would ...

I currently have Ubuntu 15.10 on one partition and CentOS 7 on a separate partition of the same 1TB HDD (as well as swap partitons.) On a separate SSD I have Windows 10.

same environment as mine :) just download iso image and put it into your bootable DVD/USB. Set the partition and install, then set the first boot device to linux installed HDD at the BIOS/UEFI. Otherwise, you can only boot with Win10

Your question has some points uncleared. Like if you want to run Ubuntu and Windows side by side or want to remove Ubuntu completely and install Windows or want to install Windows inside Ubuntu with VirtualBox. For first point if you want to run both then you need to install Window first then Ubuntu. For the second point if you want to remove Ubuntu just ...

Your command, wmctrl -k on is respected by Openbox which is the window manager used in LXDE and it works for me (Openbox session of Lubuntu 14.04 LTS).

The problem is the embedded Color Profile, not the calibration of the monitor (otherwise the second image would show a uniform green, although different from the first one). In order to avoid these problems, it is a good practice to produce pictures without an embedded color profile, so that then web browsers will use their own color profiles to show them, ...

Had similar Problem: Win 7 and Xubuntu 15.10 -> Grub never started.

First: Consider GPT instead of MBR partitions. If you have the hardware for it (UEFI bios), and new enough OS's (win 10 or 8, linux OS after ~2014), consider using the new GPT partition scheme. See Whats the difference between gpt and mbr when partitioning a drive Second: Choose between grub or windows boot loader and stick with it. In your case, ...

That answer worked perfectly for me, you just need to create file (let's say keyboard.sh) in your home directory, copy/paste that code into this file, then give it execution rights (chmod +x keyboard.sh in terminal) and execute it. You can delete that file after execution.

Disable GRUB hidden timeout.

This is pretty straightforward, potential BIOS complexities aside. Backup your user files Insert Windows 10 Install Media Install to main HDD Resize and re-partition from within Windows 10 if needed (it probably isn't) Discussion: Since you want to "uninstall Kubuntu" you don't have to re-partition anything, you are just going to overwrite everything; ...

Instead of changing Boot Order, You can directly boot from USB drive without affecting boot order.

Unfortunately, it looks like the filesystem on your passport is corrupted. If chkdsk hasn't fixed the issue it would suggest that the filesystem is corrupted beyond repair (at least the repair offered by chkdsk). If you still have the data on your windows machine, the quickest fix would probably be to reformat the drive and re-copy the data.

Well, it's always tough to explain Linux to Windows newcomers. First tip ever: forget Windows. Linux is not and will never be Windows, just as Windows is not and will never be Linux. They are different. Period. Now the whole thing: Linux is an Unix-like system. What? Unix-like? Unix is an ancient operating system born in the 60's, when computers were huge ...

It is not as simple as that. While software written for Linux generally does not use the .exe extension, and dynamically loaded libraries typically have .so, more often with a version after that for stable libraries, there are some pieces of software which do use the .exe or .dll extensions, though they are not necessarily programs for Windows. For example, ...

WinUSB functions require Windows XP or later. You can use these functions in your C/C++ application to communicate with your USB device. Microsoft does not provide a managed API for WinUSB.

This is caused by the fast startup option on Windows 8+. In order to safely access the Windows hard drive in Ubuntu, you need to turn off the fast startup option in Windows power settings.

Yes, it is normal that you can see your Windows files in Ubuntu, and no, you cannot see your Ubuntu files in Windows. Windows does not understand the default filesystem Ubuntu uses, although Ubuntu understands the filesystem Windows uses.

If you use your command line for efibootmgr, it leaves the Windows bootloader in first place. Simply switch the numbers at the end of your command line for a cleaner fix, for example sudo efibootmgr -o 2,1.

Figured it out myself. My computer can only have 4 partitions in use. By default, all 4 of those were being used. So I deleted the partition for the factory image. After that the option came up.

You can have a dualboot system, and run the Windows partition in a VM, consult this thread. You may not use remote control (RDP/VNC) without somehow booting the Windows partition in a VM, so the remote control is kind of superflous.

Answering this question can be a bit longer. Based on what you are trying to achieve. You can Install Ubuntu on a Virtual Machine using built in *Hyper-V* (If you have a PRO Edition of Win) Windows Feature, VMWare Player (Free) or Oracle Virtual Box hypervisors. Again it depends on your goal. Also you can install the Ubuntu as a native OS as well, if you ...

I made a try yesterday. First, I installed Windows 10, and then Ubuntu, with fast-boot and secure boot disabled.. The installation was successful, but there was not option for Windows in GRUB menu. After booting to Ubuntu, I executed "update-grub" as root, and everything was perfect, as required. Do make a try, and let me know.

Install Ubuntu in another partition (if you are in doubt, just choose a partition to swap and another to /). Grub will be installed and windows 10 will be identified automatically resulting in dual boot option on boot.
