comment File sharing on secondary drive
The results of lsblk and the contents of /etc/fstab might be useful for figuring this one out. It seems a little odd to me that your secondary drive would be on /dev/sda1

comment Unity launcher Removal
@Jconb22 For future reference, the icons on the left are called the "Launcher", whereas the large display of files and icons that comes up when you click the Ubuntu logo is the "Dash". Luckily I managed to guess what you were talking about.

comment Unity launcher Removal
When you say Dash, are you talking about the column of icons on the left? You can set that to Autohide by going into System Settings and going to the Appearance settings dialog. Completely removing it is not a good idea unless you know what you want to replace it with.

comment The new EA games cannot be found in the Software Center
My understanding is that they're currently only available for 12.04. Also, are you looking in the "For Purchase" section? You can get there by clicking the arrow next to All Software.

comment Cannot install anything through Terminal - apt-get -f install
@gecko Thanks, I was hoping that someone would post a guide like that as I've been meaning to check out 2.8 for myself.

comment How to remove Ubuntu and put Windows back on?
Since the bootloader doesn't seem to be working, you may also need to restore the MBR (master boot record) after removing Ubuntu. You can usually do that using a Windows install disc, if you have it inserted when you boot up.

comment Can't Install Ubuntu
When you say you have partitioned your disk, did you do that through Windows, or using a third-party utility? Just for future reference, it's usually better to leave your disk unpartitioned, and just let the Ubuntu installer do the partitioning.

comment Cannot install anything through Terminal - apt-get -f install
Two things: have you actually tried running sudo apt-get -f install like it suggests, and did you recently add a PPA to try and get GIMP 2.8?

comment How to edit quicklist for a Mounted Device in the launcher?
I don't think this is right in this case. If I'm understanding the question, they want to be add entries to the quicklist for a mounted volume, specifically a blank CD, rather than adding an arbitrary launcher with a disk icon. Mounted volumes seem to occupy their own category in the Unity launcher, and I don't know of any way to edit their launcher entries.
