comment Enabling Fast Boot
Sorry but I don't see how this is related to Ubuntu that your Windows starts as if it has no hibernate information. You yourself said that you suspect an issue in Windows. Another thing worth to look into would be your boot chain, if it is GRUB -> Windows Loader then try the Windows Loader only when hibernating. I run Windows 8 and Ubuntu on my laptop on actual seperate hard drives (not partitions) and I don't have these problems.

comment Clonezilla and Alignment
You're misreading Phillip (psusi). He said that alignment is preserved. There is no need for "auto-alignment" if both disks operate the same way regarding sectors, which is usually the case. However using soutions like clonezilla is a poor workaround and there is no reason to be scared of installing bootloaders. I recommed a tar-backup and reinstalling GRUB as described in the link (which I just edited to make it more clear for you).

comment How to install Windows 10 and OS X on a laptop pre-installed with Ubuntu?
@karel That is not exactly what I was looking for (but I upvote anyway). I would have expected to find a separate UEFI firmware download for this product, which doesn't seem to exist, or some other indication/documentation for changes made to improve Linux support. I assume that both products run the same firmware (=certification for Windows), where one is just stricter with the choice of available components to choose from. The support level in this price range is above average, but I don't see much difference to a comparable product sold only with Windows.

@karel That doesn't sound very convincing to me (Intel Wifi has mostly been a safe choice, Nividia on the other hand...). Do you have a particular source for this statement that is more than just manufacturer marketing or the average shallow tech review?

comment How to make a bootable mac usb IN ubuntu
The firmware in newer Macs allows to boot standard UEFI bootable media, which are rather trivial to create and don't require special Ubuntu images.

comment How to install Windows 10 and OS X on a laptop pre-installed with Ubuntu?
@Harper This obviously needs some explanation: Shipping a computer like the M3800 designed and certified for Windows (8) with another operating system and probably adding a fancy name doesn't change the fact that it is still a Windows computer certified for a certain release. To me these special editions are just half hearted commitments that are not comparable to actual support contracts ensuring that you can always run the latest version of Ubuntu without any flaws on engineering level. mjg59.dreamwidth.org/32369.html

comment ZTE MF193A USB fails to mount
Are you just curious about the error message, or does this relate to an actual problem? It just looks like it cannot mount the virtual driver CD with Windows drivers. Nothing to be concerned about.
