comment Computer does not boot after changing hdd and reverting back
It sounds like your BIOS/UEFI is modifying its parameters as a function of the boot media and getting confused, Please add screenshots of its boot info after steps 2 and 3. Use your camera if no other choice.

comment Virtual Boxes, Linux hosts, Windows guests, Shared folders and Recycle bins
Which machine houses the folders? If Linux, then you can use the vfs_recycle module of Samba to intercept file deletes and move the files to another repository.

comment Use a Video Card (GeForce 9800GT) and a AMD 5150 processor with Radeon R3
Which Windows version are you on? See if you have error/warning messages in the Event Viewer. Also check the Device Manager for any devices that have a yellow icon, and post a screenshot of the contents of the "Sound, video and game controllers" branch.

comment Is there a way to set unique applications in the Dock per Desktop in Mac OS X?
This is a duplicate of OS X Different Docks For Different Desktops, where unfortunately the answer is "not possible". Maybe some OSX replacement dock will be the solution, but product recommendations are out of bounds on this forum.

Yes, this was exactly what I suspected was the problem. But you got there before I could spell-out the details. Well done.

comment Enable Fn-Brightness Buttons Ubuntu
@cabellicar123: After Windows boots, the BIOS/UEFI is almost totally unused. Maybe that's the difference with Ubuntu.

comment Enable Fn-Brightness Buttons Ubuntu
You might add more information about what works on Windows that doesn't on Ubuntu. It might however be that Windows is relying less on the keyboard firmware than Ubuntu and so is using lower-level keyboard functions.

comment Enable Fn-Brightness Buttons Ubuntu
@cabellicar123: For most laptops, Fn+F10 etc. get translated by the keyboard firmware into a virtual-key code. You cannot map Fn, but you can map these virtual-key codes. Unfortunately, only some Fn combinations are handled by the keyboard firmware, and for the rest the result is undefined and most probably not what you are looking for.

comment Enable Fn-Brightness Buttons Ubuntu
@shivams: You might post your comment as an answer. This is not the first time that the question of mapping Fn has come up, and it's always the same answer.

comment Fix BSOD error 0x7B without reinstallation
Disconnect all possible devices before doing Starup repair. Check your BIOS settings for the disk : for example AHCI or IDE. See this article for fixing via boot to command-line - please report on results. You could also try specialized products: Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition and boot-repair-disk.

comment Modifying the icon in the firefox search box for a website's search engine/feature? (ie. GoogBinHoo, Wikipedia, Ebay, Superuser, etc)
@TomášZato: You are right in one sense: I just now tried accessing the above link and found that the Mozilla database was down. I resurrected the text from the Google Cache and pasted it above.

Sorry, wrong link for your case. Try Startup Repair as described in this link. I also fixed my answer.
