The only two problems I encountered where those mentioned in the comments above: 1. Grub is removed, and no other OS except Windows 10 is thus accessible. 2. Windows 10 uses the Hybrid Boot feature, which basically hibernates instead of shutting down the system, and this may cause problems with multi-boot in Linux (windows partitions not accessible). ...

To remove ubuntu from a usb you would reformat the usb (most likely to some format your other OS uses like fat32 for windows). Reformatting can be done using disk management in windows, by using a tool like gparted on linux (gparted live disk perhaps?) or by running commands to delete the partitions from a linux command line and reformat your flash drive ...

Here I share what I learned about this, after struggled with it for quite a few days. I have a dual boot system with Windows 10 and up-to-date Debian testing, and would like to share the same bluetooth mouse. Mine is a Razer Orochi mouse. I am giving all the credits for the following people and their work: 1) ...

Visual BCD Editor is an alternative. Can create a Windows loader for UEFI or BIOS firmware by simply changing extension of winload to .exe or .efi See also Dual-boot Repair tool for Windows 10. Works also for BIOS of UEFI booting. I would run Dual-boot Repair in Windows 10 and then add a Windows 7 loader using Visual BCD Editor. All is done on click. To ...

The best guide is the official one from Ubuntu I think. It details some pitfalls and considerations you need to have in place before you proceed. Have a look at that fine piece of documentation right here - and do make a backup first. You can use wbadmin that comes with Windows to create a backup from a command prompt with administrator privileges: wbadmin ...

There are hundreds of step-by-step guides on how to dual-boot a Windows OS with a Linux OS. You don't need to label the partition. The Ubuntu installer should automatically identify that Windows 10 is installed on your computer already and, when GRUB2 (the Linux bootloader) is installed to the start of the disk, will create a menu where you can choose ...

This error means that you try to run 32 bit application on 64bit platform or vice versa. That is maybe your ntldr is 32 bit version. Try 64bit version of ntldr Also, if you move your windows from other machine, it is possible you have no all drivers In case of XP follow steps that are described here Also do next: Try to run Windows XP on old machine ...

The issue, really, is that Windows ties its boot mode to its partition table type: EFI-mode booting requires GPT and BIOS-mode booting requires MBR. Thus, you need to boot the Windows installer in EFI/UEFI mode, not in BIOS mode. This topic is covered on many sites, such as here and here. Before you proceed, though, you should figure out if Ubuntu is booted ...

You can go that hard route, or you can achieve multi-boot with one boot partition with the following simple steps, Make each OS, your sda1 RHEL 6.7 sda2 RHEL 7.0 sda3 RHEL 7.1 sda5 SUSE 12 sda6 Fedora, etc, to boot on their own from their own partition Use GRUB2 Chainloader to boot them individually. Ref: here, here and here. Here is an example: ...

The Windows installer (more importantly the automated creation of the boot manager/BCD data) doesn't have the ability to identify other installed OSes (such as Ubuntu) and therefore give you the choice upon boot. In contrast, however, the Linux installer (again, more importantly the GRUB2 installer) DOES have the ability to identify that other OSes exist on ...

Dell laptops that come with Ubuntu preinstalled have a selection of hardware selected for optimal compatibility with Ubuntu that is different from the same model Dell laptops that come with Windows preinstalled. In addition to this, the default UEFI settings of Dell laptops that come with Windows preinstalled are optimized to run Windows well. So in addition ...

First, you wrote: I do not have enough portable storage for backup FIX THIS PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY!!!!! I frequently see problems on this and other sites caused by people who have inadequate backups. Because of accidents or hardware failures, they lose all their personal data. That out of the way, your computer uses EFI firmware, not BIOS. One of your ...

If you only formatted the partitions then you will need to decide if you want to install CentOS to those partitions - and manually select the partitions during the install - or delete the partitions (leaving "free space" on the disk) and let the CentOS installer guide you through the partition creation using the free space (it does the partitioning for you). ...

Instead of touching the boot.ini file, you could use programs such as EasyBCD or BCEdit. http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/

I have almost the same problem (Hackintosh + Windows). The solution I found was installing another disk controller. These can be cheap ($30) or expensive (real RAID / SAS card on PCIe bus). To the point: Install Windows on its own disk. The motherboard SATA ports are good for this. (Leave the other controller plugged in.) After Windows has been installed, ...

The reason for my problems was that Windows Fast Boot was turned ON. I turned it off by going to Control Panel->Hardware and Sound->Power Options->System Settings and deselecting Turn on fast startup under Shutdown Settings. Grub has been loading flawlessly for the past five days and their have been no conflicts between Windows and Linux.

Note that I tried turn off fast startup option in power options Check if your Win10 drive contains a file "hiberfil.sys". If so, Win10 is still using some kind of fast startup. You can disable this by aplying the command (run in a console with administrator rights): powercfg /H off I had a similar problem and this helped.

Most times YES. You will have to repair your bootloader. After you upgrade Windows, using a bootable Ubuntu USB or CD Run it -> Install and run 'Boot repair' -> Recommended Repair and reboot the system. hope this will help you if you get problems.

The part of the problem that I have been working on for the last several weeks is this: Why can't I do a re-install from the Snow Leopard Install DVD? When I boot from the DVD and select the install script, the screen stops at a white background with a grey apple and a sequence of three beeps repeating every 5 seconds. Accoring to what I had been able to ...

The problem can be easily solved using Dual-boot Repair tool. No long tutorials, explanations etc. Run the tool (obviously in Windows XP), click on "Automatic Repair" and confirm. This will restore booting to Windows 7 by default. For adding Windows XP to boot configuration data (Windows 7 BCD) you click on "Fix XP/2003 boot", select XP \Windows folder ...

You could make Windows un-mount a mount point and then hibernate with a simple batch script: mountvol Path /d shutdown /h /f /t 0 where Path is the full path to the mount point. Once the script is created, make a shortcut to it in the Start menu (assuming you use it) and set a keyboard shortcut so that you can run it with a couple of key-presses. See ...

Windows 8/8.1 during installation has created a new "System Reserved" active partition (350 MB) so the old BCD from Windows 7 should be still on the 100 MB "System Reserved" (D:). The only problem I can see is that new "System Reserved" is far away from beginning of disk but as long as you can boot Windows 8/8.1 there seems no problem. Solution: To add ...

Use Clonezilla or some other disk imaging live-cd, and make a full disk backup, if you have important files on your Ubuntu system you don't want to lose. Use Gparted live or something like that to wipe out the partition table (removing all the partitions) Now, install Windows 10 first, using the iso file on microsoft's website on a partition with the size ...

I am dual booting. My Win7 partition is still activated. Probably can't use the product code for a new install tho. There's always Loader by Daz. Their fault for getting rid of WMC.

The overheating problem is common in MBA and MBP running Windows!!! This is due to poor fan speed management... To solve it, use Macs Fan Control by CRYSTALIDEA... It'll solve the heating problem in an instant!!! There won't be any performance loss or crashes if you run Windows natively... In fact, Windows 8.1 and 10 run better and faster on my MacBook Pro ...

No, to both. Systemd-boot cannot read any partitions outside its own. However, you should not have more than one EFI partition per disk (its file layout was explicitly designed to be shared between different operating systems).

NO, once you installed ubuntu properly alongside with Windows, you can use flash drive for any other purpose. Before you do it, please refer this official Ubuntu documentation and more details with GUIs this site.

I solved this issue following these steps; -load into the Live environment of Kali, -start up the Applications->Systemtools->Administration->GParted partitioning tool from the menu ignore the error about the gpt: this is probably why you have this problem in the first place.. -remove all partitions, then, in the menu 'Device' choose ' Create partition ...

Do you have the both things installed? (Ubuntu and Windows 10)? If you do, you must have the younger OS installed first so, if you are using Ubuntu 14.04/.10 you have to install Windows 10 after it. Its kinda complicated but if the GRUB menu doesnt appear after installing Ubuntu or Windows 10, look up on Google how to fix grub menu not appearing with ubuntu

You just have to install it as usual. You can create a bootable USB stick by using this tool. After everything is ready, restart(or turn off fast startup) your computer. This is because your data might lost if you resize the partition or install Ubuntu in the partition which Windows is using. After this, you can turn on your computer(you have to change the ...

Let's take the easy one first: A 2011 Mac would have a 64-bit EFI, so that means you should install 64-bit versions of all your OSes on it. (Most OS X versions provide both 32- and 64-bit support via "fat" binaries.) You can often get away with a 32-bit OS, particularly if you boot it in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode; but a 64-bit version gives you greater ...
