Yeah, udisks --detach is helpful for detaching drives completely after unmounting.

+1 for os.getenv, this will work even if 'wUsername' has quotes in it.

Ye, this did fix it! It's probably a very specific answer, but it did work!

I haven't found the time to run a memtest yet, I'll do that soon though. I think updating the BIOS might have fixed my particular problem, but I'm going to do this anyways, and it will probably help future viewers as well.

I installed this update, and I think this has actually fixed it! I would have never thought to check the BIOS. I'm going to go another day to make sure it doesn't happen any more though!

I first partitioned with ubuntu, then before installing windows I moved all ubuntu partitions into an extended partition, and installed windows in the first partition.

I've used samsung's software to upgrade it from Windows, and the SMART check does say it's all OK. Also doubting it's a hardware disk problem because Windows does never have any errors booting, and once I am booted into Ubuntu, there aren't any errors reading/writing the disk.

I'll try booting up and running memtest overnight. If I run it overnight, will the errors stay on the screen until morning? Also, how does passing a bad memory segment to the kernel help? I mean it looks like the error is in grub itself. I have had no errors at all in ubuntu itself once it boots up successfully.
