This might work: Create an Ubuntu live usb. Choose it in BIOS. You will have multiple options. Select Boot Repair. This should reinstall grub. WARNING! I am not sure if it deletes user data or not. I am not responsible if you lose your data.

For some reason a moderator deleted my comment after I spent almost an hour researching this and found a solution (I'm sensing a conspiracy here... my bet is SO's servers are running on xv6 and they don't want anyone else to be able to run it) This is an issue in xv6. The issue can be solved by using the following PR: https://github.com/mit-pdos/xv6-public/...

I think you might be confused. RSA/DSA have to do with authentication and encryption. If you are trying to verify the integrity of your ISO for Ubuntu, you do that by comparing checksums. Integrity/verification checks can be done with 100% accuracy by running a checksum function on a file and comparing the result to the published checksum for that file. ...

Thank you @steeldriver for pointing it, I was confusing library names with package names. I used sudo strip --remove-section=.note.ABI-tag /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5 this and was able to successfully run CDO.

Ideally, Windows should not ruin your bootloader if it's installed on a different drive. That being said, Windows is Windows, and we really don't ever know what it's going to do. So I would do what was suggested in the comments: remove your Ubuntu drive, install Windows in the new drive, then put the Ubuntu drive back, and make sure you boot into Ubuntu (may ...

In your case you can install the Apache Airflow via python pip in your WSL subsystem and then copy all the files in the ~/.local/lib/python[your_python_version]/site-packages and then you can zip it to transfer to another computer. But note that if the Ubuntu version in the WSL subsystem of the second machine is different , that might cause some problems. ...

Even though this is old question, it is still topic where Samba has some problems.

You have a bit of work to do if you expect to "discover" then "connect" to a Windows 10 machine from Ubuntu 20.04. In Win10 you have to have SMB 1.0/CIFS Server enabled. In Ubuntu 20.04 you have to enable SMB1 on the client side. You do that by editing /etc/samba/smb.conf and right under the workgroup = WORKGROUP line add this one: client min protocol = ...

First, you want to make sure you have disabled fast startup within Windows 10. If left enabled, this will lock your Windows partition, and installing the GRUB boot loader will silently fail. Then, as @Sasuke Uchiha suggested, check whether you're booting in UEFI mode or BIOS mode (sometimes called "legacy" or "CSM" mode). If you're on UEFI mode, most likely ...

When booting press F2 to access firmware settings. Find boot sequence. Make sure Ubuntu is 1st and Windows boot manager is 2nd. Save and exit (F10). Alternatively if you use windows more than Ubuntu, you can access ubuntu from boot options by pressing F12 during boot.

One handy tool that every Linux user needs is a boot-repair tool on a bootable USB thumb drive. This will save you hours of trouble. I made mine using instructions here It will help you out of all manner of troubles, like what you have described. Best of luck to you, and feel free to ask questions about this if you need to.

No, you don't need to boot to windows. If you already have a Ubuntu CD/DVD or USB then you just need to boot to that and install Ubuntu (you can then choose to format the HDD/SDD etc.) By default the PC may offer the choice of booting from your Ubuntu USB, but if not you may need to go into the system bios to set boot order and/or allow booting from your ...

I have done it last year with 18.04 (think the same apply to 20.04)...Just boot directly in ubuntu and choose the options. No need for pre boot win, you can leave it as dual boot, or as ubuntu install it will erase the disc and be the only OS on the HD. Have fun.

I have tested it couple of times. I had Windows 10 on SSD, Ubuntu 18.04 in NVME. Separate storage . There were options in the GRUB menu to choose Windows 10 or Ubuntu on boot.

This depends on whether your operating systems are installed in UEFI mode or Legacy mode. (If your PC is manufactured in the last 5-6 years, and came pre-installed with an operating system, it will most likely be UEFI.) There is a similar question that you can follow to check whether you are using Legacy or UEFI. Note: Irrespective of which mode you install ...

Dell laptops come with BitLocker enabled from the factory and it causes no end of problems. Loads of reports of people unable to access their data because of faults with it. The encrypted drive meant that Ubuntu could not read. I disabled BitLocker in Windows (which took forever) and now the OS drive appears in the "Other Locations" part of Nautilus.

In short: You can't mount your Windows drives read-write in Ubuntu, when Windows fast boot is enabled, since Windows wont flush latest updates to disk when shutting down but keep them in a state-file, so the filesystem will not be in a consistent state.

System Restore in Windows functions only within the Windows operating system.

Your computer stores the time in a hardware clock on its motherboard. The clock keeps track of time, even when the computer is off. By default, Windows assumes the time is stored in local time, while Linux assumes the time is stored in UTC time and applies an offset. This leads to one of your operating systems showing the wrong time in a dual boot situation. ...
