It looks like you installed using Crouton. This is not the official version of Ubuntu and thus is off-topic here.

comment RAM allocation on PC
Think of your laptop as a car with 8 cylinder engine. Think of Windows as your spouse. Think of Ubuntu as youself. At any time only one of you can drive your car. When your wife drives she uses all the 8 cylinders. When you drive you use all the 8 cylinders.

comment Unable to NFS mount from Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS against QNAP NAS
That looks like a downgrade. Are you sure you moved from 2.0.1.17 to 2.0.0.23?

comment Dual boot 14.04 with Windows 7on second disk (sdb), BIOS loader
Thanks @MGodby. It will be good to know if the command line does not work, but the GUI interface does for some reason. I have nothing against GUI tools like Grub-customizer.
