comment upgrade ubuntu from 10.10 to 14.04
You can't really upgrade somehting that old. Too many steps, and possible points of failure. You can (possibly) install 14.04 LTS, but it may have difficulty supporting older chipset, BIOS, devices, etc. Why do you need to keep this old motherboard / BIOS / computer?

The image file is on the server. If you want to view it locally (on laptop), you need a local copy. Are you unsure how to do that?

This is likely a hardware / vendor issue, and not about Ubuntu. See: h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-Notebook-PC-Questions/… OR tomsguide.com/answers/id-2121606/envy-heating-problem.html

comment How to recover data from a thrice formatted HDD?
By default the format command replaces the disk's indexing, but does NOT erase (write zeros) the content. So doing this three times may be no worse than just once. However, if you (or younger brother) chose the non-quick format (eg. overwrite / erase all data), then this repeated three times may actually remove much of the data. You have not provided enough detail to be sure. If is critical that you recover the data, take the drive to a professional.

Choosing 14.04 LTS Server would be better long term; or even 12.04 LTS.

Can you identify the version of Ubuntu, and describe the size/scale of the network you want this for.

Also try a different USB port, and/or check BIOS/setup for port hibernation / power saving.

comment Ubuntu very slow startup
This could be a driver issue, but I have only heard of similar issues with (inbuilt) touchpads. That was related to interrupts and device conflicts, with new drivers for touch screens (so unrelated to what you have).

comment Ubuntu very slow startup
Does it run OK with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS? Did you add/remove any USB devices (eg. mouse), or where they present at power on?
