comment How can edit a executable file linux
Executable binary image files do not contain "lines" which you could "edit" so the question makes no sense.

comment How does one edit an img file in gparted?
It should work if you are using the loop device, at least on 14.10... are you still on 14.04 or older?

comment How does one edit an img file in gparted?
You mean you are manually running sudo gparted /path/to/some/file? Or did you use losetup to connect a loopback device to it?

comment Why is QEMU so slow even with KVM
@user1120675, how much ram did you give the guest? The default is only 512mb which really isn't enough.

Are you installing the server edition? With the desktop edition, you don't select a kernel to install.

comment Unable to reinstall windows 7. I have tried EVERYTHING. (computer won't recognize flash drives?)
I can't make heads or tails of your question. If you want to reinstall windows, you need to boot from a windows install disc. This of course, has nothing to do with ubuntu.

There is no "second MBR". The MBR is the very first sector of the whole drive.

comment Completely…I mean COMPLETELY wiping my hardrive
If you have unplugged the network, then it isn't coming from your computer. They must have a spy cam in your dorm room or something.

comment How to apply patches to gparted?
14.10 isn't an LTS. At this point the easiest thing to do is to upgrade to 15.04, which already has this fix applied.

comment Using “dd” in Vi (delete multi lines) not accepted if number of lines > file length
I'm not sure if vi has anything like this, but rather than download, edit, upload manually, emacs has a feature called TRAMP that lets you open the remote file by url, it automatically downloads the file and opens it, you edit, save, and it automatically uploads it back. Might be a better fit for your process.

You appear to be trying to use grub2 config file commands inside a legacy grub ( which hasn't been used since Ubuntu 9.04 ) menu.lst.

Your filesystem is corrupt. You will need to chkdsk it from Windows, since it is NTFS.

comment Does sleep mode limit CPU performance?
Umm... sleep mode means NOT running, so performance would be zero.

comment Are there processes that can't be stopped?
@muru, the word immune implies that trying to suspend it simply has no effect and it will continue running as if you did not suspend it, as opposed to the suspend being delayed.
