comment Dual boot Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu
Your answer is pretty correct, however I couldn't figure out what they ment to boot Linux in EFI mode. The trick is to keep UEFI on and move the Boot Order of the USB stick to the TOP to boot in insecure mode.

comment Dual boot Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu
I have solved it, 90% here is the solution on my X1 Carbon: ### In BIOS: - Disable Secure Boot - Change your Boot Order so that USB HDD - This is important otherwise Ubuntu will NOT boot in EFI mode or whatever you want to call it. - You can install Ubuntu this way, or if it's already installed follow these instructions from a live-cd or USB @ help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair - Next, after this go back into Windows and open BCDEdit -- and you have to Dink around with that and This part im stuck at.

I am going to try using the boot-repair-disk, it appears you can install Ubuntu in Legacy or EUFI mode (help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI)

comment External Hard Disk is not empty but files are not being displayed
I want to add that I had this problem with an SSD I removed while the computer was on. I was stuck for days, then I went to the Drive > Properties > Tools > Optimize and ran it. Then the files showed up. Weird.

comment Is there a way to 'clean out' physical memory (RAM) that is tied up on my Centos/Apache webserver?
@Gideon Those things seem to never display correctly with many Hosts they only check the Physical Ram Free that has not yet been used, and that's not true. Glad it helped!

Type $ free -m to see your memory. If you have a lot of it Free, or in buffer/cache you are okay. If it's in Swap, then it's really eating up the memory.

comment ERROR: Windows cannot find the path specified
Thats a very weird place for Dropbox to store or reference files. Are you trying to backup dropbox? What if you uninstalled dropbox and tried a backup so that it doesn't reference those items?
