Although it pretty much never happens that the installation fails, the only way I could think of is making a recovery partition. I did a quick search for you and found this.

insert ubuntu cd and select try ubuntu, connect to internet opne terminal ( Ctrl+Alt+T ), login as root: sudo -i find out your linux disk : fdisk -l mount it: mount /dev/sdaX /mnt Recover: grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda

Short Answer Yes, your plan is workable Medium Answer There's no such thing as "safe" (in an absolute way) when dealing with partition-resizing operations. Your plan, in particular, will necessarily involve moving the start point of at least one partition, and that's always a bit risky. Be sure to have adequate backups before moving or resizing ...

This is what I found: How do we install Java in Wine? But I don't have any problems with mods on my linux machine so I'm wondering if there could be another problem. Do you have Forge or ModLoader installed? I would make sure the JDK is fully up to date on the linux machine, Forge updated, Minecraft updated, etc. The minecraft EXE is a relatively new ...

For sharing partition in dual boot You should create and NTFS partition and set up it to mount automatically on Ubuntu start. You can edit the file /etc/fstab and include a line like this: /dev/sda10 /media/Winbugs7/ ntfs-3g defaults,user,rw 0 0 Where /dev/sda10 is the partition and /media/Winbugs7 is the (existing!) directory where the partition will ...

Your configuration is peculiar. It looks like you installed Windows 8.1 yourself in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode, then installed Ubuntu in EFI/UEFI mode. That's not a happy combination; it's almost always best to boot both OSes in the same mode (BIOS or EFI), not to mix modes. Broadly speaking, there are three ways to proceed: Install a BIOS-mode Ubuntu boot ...

First, you need to go into your windows settings and disable fast boot. Then, shut down windows fully and properly, do not hibernate. Finally, boot up ubuntu and run the following command to update grub: sudo update-grub


0

Download your package on windows. Then mount that drive that saved the file. Then use sudo dpkg -i your-package

To be quick, turn off fast boot on Windows, disable hibernation, and it will then be safe.

Type sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /media/winfiles not "mount /sdb/sdb2" and not "mount /dev/sdb2/"(sdb2 is treated as a file not a directory). If this gives you an error, sdb2 doesn't exist or anything, type cd /dev ls and check if a file named sdb2 is in the folder "/dev"

You will have to make new USB bootable key with Ubuntu. You have to run GParted from live sesion from USB because you are trying to resize the partition that would be in use if you run GParted from Ubuntu installed on hard drive. USB live key can be done with StartUp Disc Creator in Ubuntu. As commented by @oldfred the windows partition is to be shrinked by ...

You would have to change the boot order of the drives depending on which OS you wish to boot if they are on separate drives. If not then yes, you will need to add entries into GRUB. Your best option would be to either: A. Install Ubuntu, and Windows 10 on the SSD (Allocated 64GB to each which, should be plenty for the OS as long as if you have your /home ...

I have the same problem: http://serverfault.com/questions/771388/how-can-i-fix-samba-3-6-25-the-trust-relationship-between-this-workstation-and A workaround is to reinstall the old packages (see the link).

Add the entry for your hostname and IP address in to the /etc/hosts If it works, then it is probably DNS try rebooting the router and remove the entry you have just added.

You can just boot with a Ubuntu live CD (or USB), and resize everything with gparted.

Perhaps also, rather than dual booting, you could install a base hypervisor, and thus have multiple VMs able to enter and exit a suspended state without issue, as it is effectively the hypervisor dealing with each & thus just removing the problem entirely.

I fixed it by adding rtl8723be to /etc/modules

It should be fixed by sudo update-initramfs -u But still you will have to re-install the driver after kernel updates. You can also install the same driver in DKMS format from a PPA. http://askubuntu.com/a/635629/167850 This way you won't need to re-install it every time you upgrade a kernel. But most likely you will need to uninstall the driver from ...

You can make a bootable USB without downloading any software. On a linux PC - Right click on the iso file and select open with and then click on disk image writer. Now select your usb drive and click on start restoring. Wait for 2-3 minutes. Your USB is bootable now and you can boot now. Click here for image-1 Click here for image-2

Your second option is probably the best because as you said Windows 10 installed but did not come with any windows disk meaning that if you completely reinstall you will lose it

Try to hold Shift while booting, this might bring up grub (at least if grub was properly installed as bootloader). If this works, boot into Linux. Chances are that grub is configured to autoboot into Windows. You can either manually change that, or install Grub-Customizer. I advise Grub-Customizer if you are inexperienced with Linux. Run this: sudo ...


0

if sudo update-grub does not work, the thing might be Grub being configured to autostart Ubuntu. You can change that inside Grub Customizer, second panel.

When dual-booting and starting with an existing Windows installation, it's almost always best to install Ubuntu in the same mode as Windows. In your case, since you've got Windows in EFI mode, you should install Ubuntu in the same way. From your description, it sounds like you're starting the process correctly. Your partition layout looks complex, so I'd ...

You could try with dd: # umount /dev/sdb1 # dd if=/path/to/windows.iso of=/dev/sdb1 Note: sdb1 is in my case the numbe of my USB partition. Be careful with this, because dd will format the device. Run fdisk -l to know the USB partition number.

You can achieve drive redirection with xRDP solution. xRDP allows you to use your windows remote desktop client and to remotely connect to your Ubuntu computer. xRDP needs to be installed on the Linux machine. So, xRDP software is the equivalent of Remote Desktop in Linux. xRDP package from Ubuntu repository does not provide drive redirection. To have ...

AFAIK, BURG is abandonware. It's also, AFAIK, a BIOS-only boot loader. If your computer came with Windows 10 pre-installed, Windows is almost certainly booting in EFI mode, and so BURG, as a BIOS-only boot loader, won't be able to boot it. GRUB 2, by contrast, is being actively developed and is available for both BIOS and EFI systems. It can therefore ...

It looks like Windows was installed with EFI on GPT partition table, but Ubuntu was installed with legacy MBR partition table and GRUB will not play well in this setup. Reinstall Ubuntu making sure that you boot the USB drive or DVD in UEFI mode and Ubuntu will install with an EFI partition. Then GRUB should automatically detect Windows and give you an ...

You should try Wine for that - https://www.winehq.org/. It is a compatibility layer used for running Windows applications on Linux, though not all of them. To find out whether your desired program works in Wine, visit https://appdb.winehq.org/ and do a search.

Try grub-repair. It's a utility tool that will allow you to configure grub and (I'm not sure but I think it also allows you to) select partitions on different hard disks with OS to be added to the grub menu. Google grub repair. I'm pretty sure it'll be helpful. Choose the standard configuration and it will detect os's . This is the easiest way, but you ...

With the new EFI system the windows and Linux bootmanager are separated. To use the windows boot manager as the default one instead of grub, just select it as the default EFI boot manager in the BIOS settings and you'll automatically boot into Windows by default
