ext4 is the default filesystem format in Ubuntu 18.04, but Windows is expecting a hard drive that is formatted as NTFS. Otherwise the Windows installer will stop and not continue, because it does not recognize your laptop's ext4 formatted hard drive. To solve this problem boot the laptop from the live DVD/USB that you used to install Ubuntu 18.04. You may ...

If it is SSD, you only need to overwrite it once for security since it is not magnetic. Overwriting it several times is bad for SSD's. Also, use MBR then NTFS if you plan to install windows. Regards.

my comment was getting too long, so I'll add another answer. I have had luck with changing the lines: ; can be comma separated list of 'SSLv3', 'TLSv1', 'TLSv1.1', 'TLSv1.2' ssl_protocols=TLSv1, TLSv1.1, TLSv1.2 Try adjusting them to: ; can be comma separated list of 'SSLv3', 'TLSv1', 'TLSv1.1', 'TLSv1.2', 'TLSv1.3' ssl_protocols=TLSv1.2, TLSv1.3

Take a look at the question at Error/problem connecting (Windows 10 RDP into XRDP) The solution that helped me was running: sudo apt-get remove xrdp vnc4server tightvncserver sudo apt-get install tightvncserver sudo apt-get install xrdp sudo service xrdp restart In fact in my case, I had only installed xrdp and completely forgot about tightvncserver. Not ...

To install it, use the commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt update sudo apt install woeusb Format your USB drive as NTFS (open your files, secondary-click on the USB drive, click "Format", and select "Type" as "NTFS"). Open WoeUSB, select the ...

It does not work to clone a Windows 7 or newer iso file to a USB drive. You need a tool to create a bootable installer (or do the extracting work manually and create a bootloader). You can try mkusb according to the following links help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb help.ubuntu.com/community/mkusb#Windows_USB_install_drive or woeusb according to the ...

I've always just used "sudo cp isofile /dev/somedevice" where "somedevice" is the root device of your usb drive, aka sdb, sdc, etc. Do not use the partition identifier such as "sdc1", just the device itself "sdc", or whichever one points to your device. Some people will tell you to use dd, and that works fine, but I've had one or two experiences where dd ...

I think you will love MobaXTerm. They have a free version that has all the features. Paid version gets support. It has been my workspace for WSL for many years and I love it. It has a snappy, native XWindows system that allows you to use GUI applications if you want (I use RStudio this way, as well as Synaptic on occasion).

As per this post, the Maxxaudio LE drivers are for Linux, not the Maxxaudio Pro, which are for Windows, and will not work in Linux. The Maxxaudio drivers provide a marked improvement of sound quality per that same post. The LE drivers have been discontinued. The link to the publisher is broken, a search at the publisher's website revealed nothing, and a ...

Your problem is that Ubuntu (and thus grub) was installed in UEFI mode and Windows 10 was upgraded from a Windows 7 in BIOS mode. Both boot systems are not compatible with one another and now you need to go into your BIOS settings to choose between legacy mode to boot Win10 and UEFI for Ubuntu. If this is a fresh install, set your system back to BIOS boot ...

You can set the default OS with grub depending on time, see Can GRUB be scheduled? This means: changing default 'entry' (auto login) at defined periods of time automatically?. So, for example, you can configure grub to boot to Windows when $MINUTE is odd and boot to Linux when $MINUTE is even. insmod datehook if [ $MINUTE -eq 0 -o $MINUTE -eq 2 -o $...

If you want to experiment with grub, you can use the grub command line (hit c when you are in grub menu). You should see the grub prompt : grub> If you want to be safe for experimenting, I would suggest using a virtual machine (with VirtualBox for example). Once in grub command line interface, you can enter the commands like you would in your /boot/...

Here's the problem: Legacy (why, oh why did you changed to legacy?). If you had to CHANGE then the factory installed Ubuntu was in UEFI MODE (as it should be). I understand that if it was the other way around, installing Ubuntu after Windows, begginers my be tempted to do that because of wrong assumptions about desktop Linux or because following some old ...

There is now a new cmdline utility for linux with some features in it. It is available here: https://github.com/agoose77/throttlestop It still does not have everything and is pretty basic overall when compared to windows throttlestop. A slow progress, but still is going to be helpful for improving the support gradually. (as of may 2019 - we are not there ...

There are a couple of answers about on the internet, but it seems that Windows does not support LVM2 (or at least not very well) You could try http://www.chrysocome.net/virtualvolumes --or--https://roshanbook.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/accessing-lvm2-in-windows/ The second link describes creating an Ubuntu VM in Virtual box, using that Virtual machine to ...

Here is a good step by step for installing/repairing GRUB: https://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair-restore-reinstall-grub-2-with-a-ubuntu-live-cd Note that you'll need a live CD and you'll need to know which partition Ubuntu is installed on (you can find this out using gparted from the live CD). Here is a brief summary of the steps that are described at ...
