comment Can I fix error 0xc0000225 without reinstalling Windows?
No, I can't. The article explicitly says (multiple times) that you need to be already running Windows to perform a repair install; besides, I tried it, and it won't let me use the Upgrade option when booting from a DVD.

Looking at it now, I see that a repair install can only be done from within Windows, so that doesn't help me.

Ah, well that was intentional. I tried using Windows to resize the partition first, after emptying the Recycle Bin and defragmenting (forgot about disabling special files though), but it wasn't able to reduce the partition size as much as I needed it to. I'll try the repair installation and see if it works. If not, then I can mount the Windows partition from Linux and copy any useful files to another partition, so I won't have to resort to data recovery.

@RsyaStudios The graphical installer doesn't detect my existing Windows installation, so I don't think I can do that.

@ali786 well, I'd rather reinstall Windows than spend $20 on a tool to fix the issue. But otherwise that would be an option. (I already looked at that website while preparing this question, though.)

comment nmap output difference between -sL and -sP
Better than asking if anyone can confirm/enrich this is to ask why it happens - assuming that's what you really want to know.

comment How does UNIX know which private key to look for?
Incidentally, this doesn't really have anything to do with UNIX specifically; the question and answers are equally applicable if you're logging into, say, a Windows server via SSH.
