I finally built a PC of my own and I created a duel booting system (Windows 8 and Ubuntu). Windows 8 works flawlessly but Ubuntu is the most infuriating thing I've ever dealt with.

I can't access the internet with out it disconnecting every 10 seconds. I'm using a Rosewill USB RNX-N250UBE. Another issue is every time i start the OS is says there was issue with mounting/Windows.

  • What didn't work? Did you encounter errors? Did you try a reboot? – chili555 Dec 23 '14 at 1:32

    It seems to be working but I still have the "an error occurred while mounting /windows" – Tim_C Dec 23 '14 at 1:35

    I suggest you start a new question with that approximately in the title. Glad the wireless is working. – chili555 Dec 23 '14 at 1:47
