I'm a ph.d. student that happens to do a lot of coding. Mostly java atm, but also pretty much any dynamic language I can wrap my head around. (over linux, usually)

comment Windows (using UEFI boot on GPT disk) will no longer boot after adding an MBR hard disk
Another note: you should be able to change the identifier with diskpart (list disks, select disk #, uniqueid disk ...), so no need to zero it out manually. I only found this out after already converting to GPT.

I ran into something very similar. I think the easiest way to solve it is by converting the second drive to GPT (with gdisk under linux, do back up the MBR with sfdisk or similar). Have to boot from the install media a few times and do the various boot repairs, after that I got it to boot.

comment How to tar.gz everything under xx MB?
If you're talking about the command line size limitation, that's not an issue here, as we're piping the output of find directly into tar.

comment How to tar.gz everything under xx MB?
The tar documentation documents no such limitation on the size of the input to -T, so I have no idea what you're talking about really.

comment Is this a complete way to back up a Linux installation?
I've always used to do the copying. Using cp gets weird when you're copying links.
