I read I could just delete the partition which I was about to do through windows 8's Disk managment, Go ahead. Mind though it will remove anything from disk. In case you need to save something use the Ubuntu installation disk to save it. By the way: there is not need to remove it from Windows. You will be prompted to replace a current Ubuntu ...

I fixed the BCD problem with BCDEdit - the command line version that comes with Windows. But I still can't figure out why deleting all the partitions and running the "clean" command doesn't delete the database. I read that the database is stored in the hidden system partition. So if the partition is blown away, how is the data retained?? Mysterious. I have ...

For anyone having trouble with this, I found a simple solution which works if you are sure that the USB stick is properly formatted to NTFS and is mounted. Start by finding the name of the mounted disk by running sudo fdisk -l. Once you find it (it'll be something like /dev/sdc1), run the command based winusb command: sudo winusb --install <iso path> ...

Check out Clonezilla here, I've used it to clone Windows+Ubuntu installs on a single disk before. It even offers to attempt clone the bootloader as well. Assuming secure boot is off and your using an MBR partition scheme (as opposed to GPT), it should work fairly well for you.

This is caused by the fact that Virtualbox "captures" keystrokes for the guest OS. You can disable this momentarily by pressing the "Host" key, which normally is the right Ctrl button. Try pressing the right Ctrl button and then Alt+Tab-ing, you should go back to the host OS.

Use Unetbootin to make a bootable image of your favourite OS t, once booted use 'Try Ubuntu without installing' option and later on install it into your partition.

As this isn't a system partition, I don't believe this is a hibernation issue. Boot back into Windows, Run chkdsk on the D drive fixing any errors and when it completes, shutdown normally and try your mount in Ubuntu again.

Ubuntu and other Linux based systems often have issues whit ntfs file systems who aren't "safely removed" in windows. the easiest way to fix this is to plug that device back in to a windows PC and safely remove it or in this case boot in to windows and make sure it shuts down correct.

Check your SMPS (power supply) if it is able to supply enough power to yur motherboard and HDD. They are hidden villains in such scenarios.

This problem is more than likely either with the CD (which I'm going to guess is actually a DVD), the computer's hardware, or the computer's BIOS boot settings and probably has nothing to do with having installed Ubuntu (or any other Linux for that matter). I would suggest first checking to see if your installation media is scratched. If not, make sure your ...

The "unknown" value under "File System" for partitions 2-8 and 10 indicates that GParted couldn't recognize the filesystem(s) used on those partitions. The values under the "Name" column in your parted -l output indicates that these partitions probably have highly specialized purposes, so there's not much point in even trying to access them from Ubuntu; it ...

Burn this to a CD or USB drive: http://sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd/home/Home/. Boot from that disk and run Boot Repair to get Ubuntu working again. Once you boot into Ubuntu, open a terminal and run sudo update-grub. This should add the Windows bootloader to the GRUB menu and you can then reboot into GRUB and select Windows.

I would personally make a Windows Bootable Usb using UnetBootin (I found this the most reliable.) http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/(link) OR you could use the link How can I create a Windows bootable USB stick with Ubuntu? to get Windows bootbale stick. Then navigate to the Bios and choose the boot order. You should see something that says USB, follow ...

Did you previously had windows 8 installed? In windows you can run -> msconfig and check what are the boot settings. Maybe you still have old boot settings, or just the name is incorrect. If so, just edit them (make sure you don't delete the correct one as it will make booting issues). If you never had windows 8 installed, you don't have to worry about the ...

Any files you move on your drives using the live cd will be moved on these drives. In other words, these files are "moved in windows as well" to use your words. There are a few things that you want to go about carefully, though: Copy rather than cut your files. If something is wrong with the harddrive you might lose files while cutting. Make sure you ...

You may delete those files, System Volume Information and $RECYCLE.BIN will be recreated when you attach your drive to windows computer, pagefile.sys is related to Windows os so it isn't created on non system partitions and drives, found.000 is related to Windows scan disk (check disk) utility, msdownld.tmp is related to installation of MS applications in ...

You have recycled your old Windows HD ? Very commendable. I can see that there are no important files left: Pagefile.sys is the swap space for windows, found.000 is part or whole of a lost file, take a look at whats inside. SYMEFA.DB probably belongs to Symantec, could be virus defenitions. msdownload is a temp file for upgrades $RECYCLE.BIN is the Trash ...

If you have not encountered any data missing on the drives, most probably it is safe to remove them.

Thanks for the reply and sorry for the duplication, I found this other question. But solved the problem by changing the boot settings in the BIOS, I realized that to update the windows, he climbed to the top of the boot, the front of grub. Thank you and I'm sorry!

This question was also answered here and here The problem is that the Windows installer doesn't know about Grub or any other OS's boot loaders, so it usually replaces it with the Windows boot loader. The Windows boot loader only knows how to boot Windows. This page describes how to recover your grub bootloader. The preferred (GUI) method: use your ...

Is there a piece of software that will let me run .exe files as soon as I install the program Natively?

PlayOnLinux is difficult and peculiar but I can not say ...

As far as I can see your problem is just the crappy hibernation win 8 does. BTW this feature has many more disadvantages. So you should disable it. To avoid such problems, I would suggest that you install both OS in uefi mode as far as you not already have done. Then you will have no MBR anymore and so you will avoid a lot of dual boot problems.

I have a common problem, except my computer just refuses to boot into Ubuntu. Disable Windows fast startup, then boot into windows using the live cd. Run the command bootrec/fixmbr and you should be good to go. This may be what you're looking for if you would like to know more: Dual boot windows 8.1 stuck

I recommend that your regulatory domain be set explicitly. Check yours: sudo iw reg get If you get 00, that is a one-size-maybe-fits-all setting.

Set it permanently: gksudo gedit ...

in your second case scenario where you install win-10 first you needed to have grub installed to /dev/sda when you install Ubuntu,,,,,assuming /dev/sda is the drive it all went to. if you chose say /dev/sda2 grub got installed to a partition table (which you can do if you are going to chain load from one grub install to the next)instead of the MBR (master ...

Steam for Windows under Wine works wonderfully. It lets me play Unturned and Terraria (the two main games I cannot play on linux) without issues (so far). Moreover, if the game you are looking at is a source engine game, such as Team Fortress 2 (which is, by the way, also available on Steam for Linux natively,) then you may run into some text rendering ...

In Non-UEFI machines, we can use GRUB2 to make USB stick bootable. Then, we can use 'ntldr' command in the GRUB2 to boot Windows from USB. Enable the boot flag on the target partition of the USB. It can be easily done with the use of the tool called "GParted". It is a GUI tool for drive partitioning . If the installation image is a ISO file, Mount it and ...

You do not need wine. Someone reverse engineered SDM and ported a repo to github. xSDM The git manual gives most details, and provides a link to his site that gives comprehensive instructions.

No. You need to initiate it. It will be shown in the update software that there is a new release and offer you to install it. It will not be automatic. Yes. I always do that myself: every new release I re-install over the old release. And I also always pick the "something else" option, format / and /home and add in my data partition without format (that ...

While I'm not quite sure sure what you exactly mean by "opening your files" and where you were expecting your hard drives to appear, I'll take a stab at it. My guess is that you haven't lost your data. My guess is that you just don't have the disk mounted. If indeed you have multiple hard drives, other than the one you're running ubuntu on, Ubuntu ...

Just mount both images at the same time, there's no real need to unmount the first one. On a side note: the problem is probably the fact that wine itself is preventing the image to be unmounted, overriding the specific executable's default behavior which wouldn't.

From my experience both of your choices should work, since they all have build-in memory. I had the same problem recently, did some google research and decided to buy Cooler Master Recon. People already confirmed it's compability with Linux. The keys and the lights worked out of the box, but it was also declared to work only under Windows. Same thing with ...

If it is just a standard, three button, usb mouse, it should. Linux comes with drivers that work with most hardware. A lot of hardware will say that they work with just Windows and/or Mac. I have Linux Mint (which is basically the same thing as Ubuntu) connected to the Internet with a usb adapter that says it will only work with Windows, and it works ...

The short answer is yes. If is a USB (wired or wireless) mouse, all usb mouses (all which I know) are universal and they uses USB HID (human interface device). If is a Bluetooth mouse there aren't so many troubles. Any mouse (wired or wireless) that has more than 3 buttons can give some troubles, however, I have one with back and forth buttons that worked ...

Basic USB/USB wireless mice normally work (still have to find one that doesn't). If the mouse is a gaming/special mouse, it depends. Most of the time it will just work as a normal mouse or will require quite a lot of configuration, unless the manufacturer explicitly support Linux. Said in other way, the additional buttons will probably be recognized by the ...

You see that little Key symbol on each partition? That key means the partition is mounted. I'm telling you this because even if you boot from an external medium such as an ubuntu live boot flashdrive or CD or DVD, you may inadvertently mount a partition and be unable to move or resize it until you unmount such a drive. To unmount a drive you have ...

use unetbootin! easy, fast, with GUI, give it a try! ;) or right click on win10 image, open with disk image mounter, and copy all to your bootable pen. make sure it's empty on either way, you can use "disks"* from ubuntu, have a look on youtube, lots of ways to do that (just look for any windows image, it's all the same) ;) *disks: select your pendrive, ...

You could get them back, but only if you know the correct path to the boot loaders. Also, you might not be able to easily recover some types of boot entries, such as those for PXE-booting or booting legacy OSes, since efibootmgr doesn't give you a way to create such entries. To add an entry with efibootmgr, you use a command something like this: efibootmgr ...

I resolved this problem. I tried format stick from FAT32 to NTFS - without results. I tried to format stick BEFORE running the Installer - without results. Then I did SLOW, LONG format of my USB stick using the system's Windows format (right click of mouse on the icon of USB stick and not-marked "Fast format"). Good luck ! :-)
