    Please see the error attached below. I configured my Windows 8.1 dual boot system more than 6 months ago and it has been working fine. All Ubuntu partitions are installed inside a manually configured...
  2. [all variants] Encrypting GPT Windows 8.1 on a multi boot system?

    I have setup LVM on LUKS for my Ubuntu and other distro partitons, which I am very happy with, but I would also like to encrypt Windows 8.1. I had planned to use TrueCrypt until I learned it does...
  3. [all variants] Re: Window 8.1, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian, GPT UEFI multi-boot with LVM and encryption

    I have password at login disabled so I only have to enter the cryptsetup passphrase. If this were the same as my Ubuntu password would there be a way to send the passphrase to Ubuntu to unlock my...
  4. [all variants] Re: Window 8.1, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian, GPT UEFI multi-boot with LVM and encryption

    Latest setup where I opted to put all the free space, short some I am keeping for different distro installs, into /home instead of a shared data partition. I only have to enter my crypt passphrase...

    The following is how I have encrypted the /root, /home, and swap partitions on a disk already containing Windows 8.1 and only require a single passphrase entry on boot:

  7. [all variants] Re: Can I avoid entering my crypt pass three times at boot?

    I read in an old thread, and it was suggested to me in #ubuntu’s IRC channel, that if I encrypt just the LVM’s physical volume as all of the logical volumes are contained within it I should only...

    Thanks for the reply oldfred, but that website covers lvm and encrypton which I am already able to configure and boot, the problem is I have to enter my passphrase three times at boot for each...

  11. [all variants] Can I avoid entering my crypt pass three times at boot?

    Hi

    Before installing I highlighted (LVM) /dev/mapper/system-ubuntu--home and chose ‘physical volume for encryption’, entered a password, and checked on ‘overwrite empty disk space’ before...
  12. [all variants] Window 8.1, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian, GPT UEFI multi-boot with LVM and encryption

    Hi

    I am installing Ubuntu 14.04 onto my laptop’s hard disk where Windows 8.1 is already installed in GPT UEFI mode. The Windows install created 4 partitions and uses 150GiB leaving 315GiB on the...
  13. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    Just to categorically state again I do appreciate the value of non local back up media but for the moment I need to get Windows backed up somewhere so I can start installing Linux :) Also, if I will...
  14. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    Hi mastablasta, thanks for the response.

    Previously I tried backing up my main windows partition which was 50GB but with only around ~24GB in use to a 30GB partition but Clonezilla gave me the...
  15. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    Okay, that sounds more like what I am talking about, the only problem is that to do this I will need a USB device larger than all the Windows partitions 101GB combined, and then about 20GB for...
  16. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    I want to be able to just restore Windows and the Windows partitions back to how things were when everything was working with all the OS installed - but I want to leave the OS other than Windows...
  17. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    Surely restoring a whole disk backup image of Windows and Ubuntu will restore not just Windows, but also Ubuntu, which I do not want?
  18. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    Will making a backup of the whole drive mean if I restore it my Linux partitions are overwritten? Also, I have a 500GB HDD available and I can clear 105GB from it, but can I make this complete backup...
  19. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    Thanks, but I believe it can be done using Clonezilla and I would like to stick with that if possible.
  20. [all variants] Re: Backing up with Clonezila before and after installing Ubuntu?

    Thanks for the reply



    I have read there is some logical reason why it cannot do this, yet, but it would be really great if it could do this when the destination backup partition/disk is...

  22. [all variants] Re: Cannot get past login. I think .ICEauthority, .Xauthority, and permission issue?

    Okay, well we are already having fish for dinner tonight so let's gut away!

    Honestly, I just want to back up the 5GB or home partition before wiping and converting into Ubuntu server - I am happy...
  23. [all variants] Re: Cannot get past login. I think .ICEauthority, .Xauthority, and permission issue?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have cat Xorg.5.log, what am I looking for exactly? Bottom of the log read 'Fatal server error: no screens found' if that helps...
  24. [all variants] Re: Cannot get past login. I think .ICEauthority, .Xauthority, and permission issue?

    No not me, it must be going around :)



    Yes, and I think that may have been what is causing the problem in the first place. I would be happy enough at this point if I could just backup my home...
  25. [all variants] Re: Cannot get past login. I think .ICEauthority, .Xauthority, and permission issue?
