comment Minor problems with using an ASUS Z97-A Motherboard
That's up to anyone to decide if they want to tune it or not. From experience of 15+ years of this I would never recommend tuning if the user wants to make the investment over this hardware last more (Which is the very first think anyone doing overclocking gets to know). My recommendation stands for motherboards that offer overclocking or not. I care not for overclocking. I care for making the cost of the motherboard last longer (Which is my personal opinion as it is this answer). If however, the user wishes to overclock, at least he has an idea of the benefits and costs of doing so.

comment Installing Ubuntu on a Pre-Installed Windows 8 (64-bit) System (UEFI Supported)
@Pacerier Hi friend, I updated the wording there to not confuse other users as you pointed out so well and also did an update related to 15.04. Thank you very much.

comment Installing Broadcom Wireless Drivers
Hi Ben, yes there are several ways to solving the same issue. The easiest (And most broad) is this answer which focuses on all Broadcom as a whole. Of course we will find "special cases". If you PCI:Id for you bcm4313, chances are, your solution is also covered here as well as in those links you shared. Thanks for the links btw, this will help others with the same model.

comment Installing Broadcom Wireless Drivers
Hi @PeterRaeves some Broadcom models still do not have full support for 2.4Ghz, 5Ghz or even both at the same time. Others need more configuration. I would recommend creating a question for this and mention that you did all this test already. I see you have rev 03 so I can't give you a 100% sure answer that, that was the one that was tested. Maybe you have yet another model to add to the list after you confirm it is working perfectly.

Can you do it via the terminal, like sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source to see what the error is.

I personally tested this specific model in askubuntu.com/questions/55868/… but this was with 14.04 and 15.04.

comment What to use to quickly cut Audio/Video
I would say not possible to @user165448 until that actually happened to me. I had to do a lot of research into the why it happens. It is rare BUT possible. So listen to him.

comment How do I install my printer with Ubuntu?
@MadsSkjern Did you try going to System Settings -> Printers and clicking on Add in order for Ubuntu to check for a printer in the case it is not automatically found? (I also had the case with the Epson L555, L355 and HP 1000)

comment How to Share folders in 14.04 Server with Gnome
@chrislott At the moment it was a requisite. Do not know if it is right now (It may be related to some common libraries). All I know is, without installing it at that moment, it simply did not work. What I actually do afterwards is "sudo pam-auth-update" and remove it from the list.

comment “Back” and “Install Now” buttons grayed out in 14.04 installer
@Yuck Like i said, you would go back, then forward again. The continue will be working. Depending on where in the install steps, you would need to do stuff like brenton mentioned above.

comment Kernel Panic block (2,0)
The issues I had here were: 1. The one the OP is suffering from which landed me on the link you provided. I also would have provided that link if not for the chance of having the same HW. 2. UEFI setting was not very friendly in booting the USB drive. I also want to mention this exact thing happens on the IdeaPad Z50 and Z510-70. Basically you either have "luck" and it works or you don't. A Firmware upgrade did not help. So to avoid spending hours or in my case 4 days on it, bye bye windows But again, many thanks for pointing it out, this could have been lost for anybody with the same issue.

comment Kernel Panic block (2,0)
Hi @MichaelLindman I would have marked this as duplicate if it were not because, as luck would have it, I am using the same model at work. None of the answers in the duplicate link worked (They are also very old and might not take into consideration the whole UEFI thing). Still many thanks for pointing it out.
