comment Ubuntu installation confusion
+1 for answering point by point. On point 2. I suggest you delete the E: partition from within Windows and leave that space unallocated. Ubuntu will find it during installation and suggest that you install it there. It will create the two partitions it needs (/ and Swap) if you follow the default installation.

comment How to clean-up/remove files in /dev/sda7?
Is this an WUBI.EXE install? /home/d looks like an encrypted home folder for the user d. This is using up all the space. Try moving some of the big files/folders in the user d's home folder into an external drive.

comment USB Boot Drive is not recognized from Windows computers
There are two methods to put Ubuntu in an USB. The first is a LiveUSB that is used to install Ubuntu in the hard drive. The second is a full install, where the USB works like a hard drive. See askubuntu.com/questions/295701/… If you did a full install on a 16GB USB, it was formatted ext4, that Windows does not know about and thus can't read.

comment how to install java 1.5 jdk in ubuntu
/usr/lib is where package-managed software goes. These get installed by Ubuntu Sotware Center, apt-get or dpkg. It is best not to put stuff there manually.

I would suggest you put it in /opt rather than /usr. See askubuntu.com/questions/34880/…

comment Is it possible to install Ubuntu on external disks from an active workstation?
What you want is create an OEM install master disk. Then clone that disk, and put them in other computers. One caveat, all the computers must have hardware that have open-source drivers that are already a part of the Ubuntu kernel. Or if they have hardware that needs proprietary drivers, it must be the same hardware, so that when you create the master disk, it includes the needed driver(s).

comment How do I find the size of ubuntu 14.04 befor installation?
Standard deskstop install takes about 5GB. So 6GB can hold a full desktop install. Once installed, you can uninstall the programs you don't need. Alternately install the Ubuntu server version. It just needs 1GB. See help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements

Do you just want a command line interface and no GUI? Or do you want to install the standard Desktop version of Ubuntu? Ubuntu will do a check to see if there is enough space before it starts the install.

comment Can I create Bootable ISO from copy of disk?
Do you mean to to say that you have copied all the files and folders in the bootable CD/DVD into your hard drive, and you want to make an ISO file out if it, and make sure the new ISO when burned into a CD/DVD will be bootable?

comment Why doesn't Windows 8 appear in the “BIOS” boot selection after Ubuntu is installed?
The question is not clear. BIOS does not show partitions normally. Does your system have UEFI (comes with computers with pre-installed Windows 8) or old BIOS?

Java 1.5 is too old. Try sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk.

comment Laptop consuming battery with lid closed?
See askubuntu.com/questions/3369/… when you close the lid your laptop goes to sleep (suspend). This still consumes some battery. If you leave it long enough the battery will run out, as you have found out.
