comment Create a writable partition
"The newly created partition is read only , why ?" how did you reach this conclusion? Parted does NOT create read only partitions without you explicitly telling it to make it read only. It does make them owned by "root". Afterwards you will need to give yourself permissions to use it.

comment How should I configure Ubuntu with VirtualBox on Windows 8.1?
Probably going to be trial and error but you have "Memory: 16GB RAM"?! Why only 512 for the instance? I would probably have started with 4Gb.

comment How should I configure Ubuntu with VirtualBox on Windows 8.1?
Guessing: I would suspect the VM Ware settings. "Memory: 512mb" might be a bit too low; if 128 of those are decicated to the gpu it might be even worse that a bit too low. It could be windows but I doubt it. But I am also pretty sure the problem is not Ubuntu relared ;)

comment The best & effective way to create a Ubuntu Image
I would always go for the manual method. You will learn a lot if you use 1 of the larger answers here: askubuntu.com/questions/48535/… or if you want to go from scratch (ie. start with a server release and the add in whatever you want: askubuntu.com/questions/409607/… This one I use more often nowadays. It is also clean (so any new desktop release just requires you to think about how it is done in the new release).

comment Install ubuntu alongside windows 7 option not coming
- you only get that option if there is a partition "unallocated space". - are you using a WUBI installer perhaps?

@muru well the question would warrant the assumption he is not using the default prompt or not bash ;)

Not from your own system. You need a password reset website.

comment Which file on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS contains Skype credentials?
It is a directory so not a command. You can use nautilus if you want to view the .Skype directory (control+h will show hidden folders in Nautilus)

Please ask 1 question at a time. Thunderbird has been asked before: askubuntu.com/questions/347013/…
