comment Ubuntu installation on Windows 10 Fails
Hi Arash, for the installation to work you need to run the installer from withing a LiveCD / LiveUSB and not from Wubi. No installer will work using Wubi (Wubi is also deprecated since about 2 years ago). Follow this answer even though it is UEFI based. The same principle applies for you askubuntu.com/questions/221835/…

comment How do I remove old kernel versions to clean up the boot menu?
@jarno you are correct, it did not do it automatically. Right now I only have one kernel but when they start to accumulate I will update the post. Feel free to update this if you do get a recent example to use.

comment Wifi card on an virtualbox's ubuntu
Hi VarunAgw, the logic says yes but it will not, it is still a wireless device and will be treated as a wired medium, this is independent of being a physical pci, onboard or usb device. Already tried atheros and broadcom as a test.

comment Installing Broadcom Wireless Drivers
Hi @intuited did you try each package individually to rule out one of them just in case? Could you give us the whole name that lspci shows (The whole line)

comment How do I resize partitions using command line without using a GUI on a server?
Thank you @Mr.Hyde. There were several issues with Workstation 10 and even 11. I would recommend 12 and for Ubuntu I would also update either to the latest or the new LTS because there were also some issues. In my case I have VMware workstation 12.0.1 and Ubuntu 15.10 64 bit.

comment Why disable Fast Boot on Windows 8 when having dual booting?
Hi lombass, correct hibernation should not touch any other files or areas of the hdd but the "new" is not the normal hibernation, it actually freezes the state of the hdd. I tried (when I tested this) to copy files to c:, program files, document settings and even created a folder in c:. No luck, all disappeared after rebooting through windows.

@nux Hi friend and thanks for the comment. In this case, it is coming directly from the man page. Just in case, for DD, when it receives the dummy USR1, it behaves like a more verbose log, so it outputs the last line mentioned in the example.

comment How to connect and disconnect to a network manually in terminal?
@PHPLearner Did you verify that the .conf file had the proper syntax. Typically that error means that the .conf file had something not correctly written in it.

comment Can I use Ubuntu to diagnose hard drive or RAM problems in Windows?
@Hellreaver For those cases, I would use the actual tools provided by the manufacturer (eg: Seagate Tools, Maxtor Tools, Quantum Tools, etc..) Since they would have their own way of checking this in most cases.

comment How to fix “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error?
@user281989 Excellent feedback and true. It can give the wrong driver. The same issues happens if we install bumblebee. on both cases it depends on the Ubuntu version, arch and nvidia driver. Thank you for your feedback. +1
