comment start on emit is not working on upstart
You are trying to make apache automatically restart when you stop it with that script? That's an odd way to go about it. Does /var/lib/apache2.enable exist?

comment /var/log uses 115G
I believe Ubuntu rotates the logs by default, so the question is really what kind of dos attack or other nonsense are you being hit with? You will need to actually look at the logs and figure out what is going on.

comment Tons and tons of problems with Ubuntu
This is a question / answer site rather than a discussion forum. You need to ask a succinct, answerable question or it will be deleted. Your tale of woe certainly does sound like you have bad ram or something though so you should run the memtest option from the boot menu of the installer.

comment Files impossible to wipe, where are they saved?
I think we have a winner.... photorec doesn't find only deleted files... it finds anything on the disk that looks like a file without regard to whether it has been deleted or not.

comment Unable to mount internal floppy drive
Seriously? The floppy disk has been obsolete for 15 years. You can't even fit a single typical photo taken with a cell phone these days on one. Let it rot in the trash heap of history.

comment Determine boot disk
That doesn't necessarily tell you which drive the computer booted from, only which one holds your root filesystem... they may not be the same.

comment How to change the driver used for SATA Controller
There is no such driver in linux. The driver being used is in fact, "ahci", which is the generic ahci/sata driver.

comment ERROR: No boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed
Looks like your bios is being stupid. You didn't disable EFI mode did you? What does sudo efibootmgr -v show? You might try using fdisk to mark a partition as active... some very stupid bios insist there be an active partition or they give an error like that.

comment e2fsck: Cannot continue, aborting
As it says, the device is mounted. You can't fsck a volume while it is mounted.

comment KVM Can´t access VM
Because there is only one default gateway: it is where packets go when they do not match any other entry in the routing table. By setting the default route on the private network, when it comes up, it takes over as the default route instead of your real upstream router. You want your Internet bound traffic going to your ISP's router, not your private network.

The private network should not have a gateway.
