comment Why won't my USB headset show up in `lsusb` or `dmesg`?
Yes, but power only for what ? If that's the case, then look at sound settings and see if any "headphones" device is listed there.

Unplug the USB headset and run this command watch -n1 "dmesg | tail -n 30" . Keep the terminal open and plug the headset. Then copy-paste here the any messages.

comment Boot Windows 7 from separate drive
If you have GPT, you can use gdisk instead. Also you must change other entries as well, insmod part_msdos to insmod part_gpt . Above example code is for MBR, not GPT. You can edit your question and add the results of parted command and also you can try both NTFS and msftres types with separate entries in 40_custom and see what is work.

comment Boot Windows 7 from separate drive
The code goes to /etc/grub.d/40_custom , then sudo update-grub, but first try the automatic discover by mounting the Windows partition and running sudo update-grub. In any case, do not copy-paste the code from here, this is just an example (of my system). You should change the /dev/sda4 partition with yours.

comment kernel panic on boot
I'm not sure if this is related to the kernel panic you have, but please try using another server. A more ... "official" one. Changing to default main server is not difficult. Open the software center goto edit then software sources and change the server to main. Then try to update / upgrade again.

And in every kernel update, you will probably need to repeat the procedure.

Do you mind to rephrase your answer ? nvidia-304 is not Ubuntu open source driver.

comment Why might parted mklabel not work?
Maybe you need to run a dd first to the first sectors ? I assume you don't have any files there (because you want to create a new partition table). Try sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=1000 to write with zeros the first 512kB. Then try again with parted.
