comment I am looking to switch to Ubuntu
Are you asking for hardware advice or which software will work or for which there are equivalent software in Ubuntu? The first is off-topic. The second is somewhat opinion based and is a bit too broad.

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.

Open a terminal and type lsusb. Then copy and paste the output in your question. The CD is for Windows. It is useless for Ubuntu, unless you find a folder called "Linux" or something similar in the CD.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of mounting various directories on separate partitions?
You are welcome. I don't agree that it is a good idea to have a separate /boot partition for average desktop user. The old kernels don't cleaned out automatically, and new ones get added. Then this happens!
