You got a /bin/mount: Permission denied mount_source_filesystem: Error: Unable to mount source media Error: Unable to mount source filesystem error. Connect the woe-usb:removable-media plug to the woe-usb:removable-media slot in order to enable USB devices to be mounted automatically by WoeUSB. Search for woeusb in Ubuntu Software and click it to go to the ...

The only way I could choose which OS to boot into is by manually going into the BIOS every time I turn on the PC and choose a boot loader. Does the Grub window appear and work properly if you do this? If so, it seems that changing the boot device in the BIOS would do the trick. If that's not the case and Grub does not show up, but instead you are booted ...

Remake a different Ubuntu version LiveUSB for testing on that USB Flash drive. Get an ISO file for a supported 'flavour' of 20.04 with a different Desktop (not the standard Ubuntu GNOME). Download @ https://ubuntu.com/download/flavours . The ISO used to make a LiveUSB should be checked for download errors as per Canonical's instructions. Make it ...

@Zeeshan, solution is: install Ubuntu alongside Windows 10 to the same SSD. But before installation of Ubuntu, safecopy / remove all your files from HDD to external drive and format you HDD to Fat32 (for both Linux and Windows). Then disconnect HDD power and data cables of HDD or delete HDD for a while. Change BIOS from Uefi to Legacy boot mode. Disable ...

Neither of the answers above were relevant for the simple solution of the question. As it turned out the problem was that the USB HDD was EXCLUDED from the boot order and has to be added first. In UEFI menu go to 'BOOT', select the USB HDD from 'Excluded from boot order' and hit '+'. This adds the USB to the 'Boot priority order'. Then the USB can be ...

Well I managed to do it by using file sharing in Ubuntu. In nautilus (file explorer on ubuntu), right click on the specific folder/file and select properties, and then go to local sharing, and select the required boxes you want. Now go to windows and press windows + r and type \\<IP Address of Ubuntu PC> i.e., two back slashes followed by the and ...

I think the only way to manage files on multiple devices is to use some sort of version control or use a usb and plug it into whatever computer you wish to see the file.

Make sure you have changed your Bios mode to AHCI in case it was on RST. Secure boot enabled or disabled no problem it works. Set your boot preference to USB EFI. And Don't forget to make /boot/efi partition while installing ubuntu 20.04 for dual boot purpose. That's it you are good to go.

On base of screenshot you posted, I would suggest to leave Disk (D:) (1st Partition from Left side) and delete remaining two partitions EFI one (middle) and another with 464.62 GB (right one) on Disk 1.

Provided both computers are in the same network and as you do not want to use both monitors at the same time, you could use an rdp (remote desktop protocol) client on Ubuntu to access windows. Unfortunately, I can not provide you with the windows side of things (but it is an internet search away). On Ubuntu you would use e.g. remmina. PS1: Rdp is totally ...

You ask a number of questions and have a number of issues. Yes, it is perfectly possible for Windows to change BIOS. There are legitimate programs, often from BIOS producers to update BIOS settings. So, of course, any other untoward program can do the same. I always keep a written record of my BIOS settings and a log of any changes I undertake. There are ...

Often Ubuntu will not show GRUB by default, but you can learn how here: How to get to the GRUB menu at boot-time? If you do not see Windows, try running sudo update-grub in the terminal, and the booting back into GRUB.

"boot repairs" are neither Microsoft or Ubuntu to be thought 100% effective or safe. Consequently--(i)why not re-install both systems --if you have the discs?

In case you stumbled on this trying to find help with VMware Fusion or VMware workstation (I'm an ex-VMware employee, so I prefer it over VirtualBox), a similar answer works here.

After Going to Ubuntu Grub terminal Type ls it displays all the current partitions on your pc similar to (hd0) (hd0,msdos1) (hd0,msdos2) (hd0,msdos3) depending on your partitions. Then for each partition like msdos1 type ls (hd0,msdos1) or for msdos2 type ls (hd0,msdos2) for all the partitions, if for any partitions you get message "FileSystem is ext2 "or "...

Thanks Christian for the feedback. I did try to use spice with GL, but kept getting an error trying to start the VM with it enabled and didn't go down that rabbit hole yet. I had passed through that GPU to my VM and no matter what I tried to do, updating Windows or drivers, trying to delete the other display and video through virt-manager (couldn't seem to ...

If you just want to do a one-off copy of files rather than using samba mounts just use scp to do remote copy. See man scp but a basic recursive scp command something like: scp -r user@server:/source/path/files /target/path/files

You're absolutely on the right track! Add Samba from the Ubuntu repositories to your Ubuntu Server machine, then the Windows machine will be able to use Windows Explorer and drag-and-drop to move files. The finer details of what files are where become irrelevant. See Samba's documentation for details, and a step-by-step tutorial at https://linuxbabe.com/...

You can manually select the right partition to install Ubuntu to, during the installation process, as outlined here. Also, maybe consider installing Ubuntu 20.04, which is the newest version. Ubuntu 16.04 is only supported until next year.

It sounds like you installed Ubuntu in BIOS (legacy) and Windows in UEFI mode. Those aren't compatible. I'd advise you back up your data and reinstall Ubuntu making sure that you boot the Ubuntu flash drive in UEFI mode.

Solved it, the problem was the SATA setting. It was set to RAID / RST, but Ubuntu needs AHCI to find the SSD. Followed this tutorial here, but be careful, it may make your computer unable to boot. In my case (Dell G5) it worked but I needed to follow the comments and boot into safe mode to properly boot.

Fixed the hibernating issue here . Ended up re-installing after multiple tries using boot-repair.

That screen you see is the kernel output and is completely normal. You can press ESC or one of the F keys to see this screen during boot so you can see errors if there are problems. However, I see no errors. Everything says "OK" so all is good. All you have to do is press CTRL+ALT+F1 or CTRL+ALT+F2 to get back to your normal display screen. If that fails, ...

I experienced the same problem some weeks ago and here is how I solved it. In my case, when I used ifconfig, wlan0 was not listed. So I connected to the internet using a USB cable (tethering), opened a terminal (CTRL + ALT + T) Ran this command: sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source Then rebooted my computer and it worked

I managed to solve the problem. Following steps had to be made: boot live session ubuntu 18.04 install gparted (sudo apt-get install gparted) in terminal and run it choose the right partition (nvme0n1p7) and run "check" function finally install boot-repair and click "recommended repair" button After reboot grub showed normally.

I think you need to put Boot Repair(the same tool you are using. Good choice) on an external CD or USB and then try again. After that it can be that when Win 10 updates Bios gets messed up. Go in there and fiddle with Legacy, and Secure Boot. That can help. Also make sure that the Ubuntu is the top in the boot order.

I had a similar issue and it was because I had installed Ubuntu using bios mode but Windows using efi mode. This explains how you can check if ubuntu is in efi mode: How can I tell if my system was booted as EFI/UEFI or BIOS? There was a way to convert an existing ubuntu install from bios mode to efi (which is what I did) but I'm having trouble finding ...

I had the same problem and I get it to work. To what it seems, there is a lot that can be "removed" from the install.sh script in order to make this work on Lubuntu 18.04 on the latest Windows 10 build. So my changes were: Remove everything from the /etc/xrdp/startubuntu.sh script less the line that calls the startwm.sh: #!/bin/sh exec /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh ...

This was really tricky when I've faced this situation myself and solved it eventually. First Start your "Ubuntu" and type cat /etc/passwd/ and note the number UID and exit the terminal. Like below in the terminal mandheer@WKWIN1754031:~$ cat /etc/passwd root:x:0:0:root:/root:/bin/bash daemon:x:1:1:daemon:/usr/sbin:/usr/sbin/nologin bin:x:2:2:bin:/bin:/usr/...

I see a raid disk, not sure what problems that might cause, but Windows has also not been shutdown properly, or is hibernated -- that must be fixed first. See line 308 in original rpt. HPs had some specific tweaks on the names of the bootloaders (see other questions/answers here). Running grub-install from the install media: Boot the install media and ...

There are some steps here for you if you want to reuse the Windows space for your Ubuntu system: Use Gparted to format the unusable Windows partition. Make sure you choose the right partition. Format it and create an ext4 file system on it. Give it a useful label, like "MyBigSpace". No extra flags are necessary. You now have a nice bit of extra space; let's ...
