comment Why am I getting a black screen when booting VM using qemu?
Not an answer to the question, but if you feel like fiddling with the resolution of the monitor, play around with the flag -vga [std|vmware|cirrus|qxl]. Refer man qemu-kvm for more details.

comment Install old software for a newer Ubuntu version?
Building from source is the best way. Just checkout the code from https://github.com/fernandotcl/udisks-glue and write your installation steps in a script and deploy it on all machines.

Anywhere inside $PATH env variable. Do echo $PATH to find out. Alternatively, add that path to $PATH like this: export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin

comment Is it good to install Windows after or before Ubuntu?
In Non-UEFI machines, after installing Windows, you will have to run grub2-install so that you can boot into Ubuntu, or use boot-repair

comment How to make a bootable CD of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?
@hellodear2 Isn't that obvious? I don't think you can burn disks in DOS or browse the internet.

comment “Gave up waiting for root device,” boot-repair failed
Boot from live disk and show the output of the command blkid. Then make sure that the entry in /etc/fstab and /boot/grub2/grub.cfg matches the UUID of the partition where / is to be mounted. If that doesn't help, run boot-repair again
