comment What are the IP addresses and port numbers for Ubuntu update sites?
"open" ports normally refer to incoming connections, not outgoing, which normally are unrestricted ( i.e. you can browse to any web site you want ). Thus you don't need to open anything.

comment Ubuntu Suspending Causes Windows 8.1 BSOD
Sadly, this is a case of broken hardware, or possibly a bug in windows, combined with oddly behaving hardware.

@waltinator, no, windows can not use a linux swap space, and even if it could, it would be fine to share swap as long as you actually shut down linux instead of hibernate it.

comment Grub does not start anymore after removing a btrfs partition
Unless the partition is where your /boot or / filesystems are, you can just remove it. Also the point of btrfs is to combine all of your storage space, even across multiple drives, into one flexible pool managed under a single filesystem rather than partition it up into different ones.

comment grub2 not showing in full screen
And what resolution is it running in when you get to the regular desktop? That sure looks to me like a monitor whose native resolution is in fact, higher than 1920 x 1080.

I am pretty sure that gparted error is because it is looking at your USB flash stick, which you created with dd rather than the startup disk creator app. You say it won't even load grub, then what does it do? Finally, putting the boot repair info report in your question would be kind of helpful.

comment GRUB see LVM disk with Kubuntu only after enter to BIOS
Odd.. the fact that entering the bios or exiting from the minimal grub makes it work points to the disk simply needing extra time to work properly, but ls still not recognizing partitions on the drive after waiting a few seconds says otherwise. Either way, this is a problem with your hardware; possibly the disk, but most likely your bios.

11.10 has long been end of life and no longer supported. By continuing to run it you have been exposing yourself to unpatched security vulnerabilities so you need to upgrade at once.
