  2. [SOLVED] Re: Windows 10, Kubuntu 18.04 dual boot Failed - failed to open grubx64.efi

    Thanks for the quick reply. I guess a re-install would be the best option then as I don't have any important data and I was just testing around.

    But why didn't Grub2 detect Windows 10 in the first...

    [ubuntu] Re: ISO from windows installation cd

    Oops. LOL. My bad.

    Yep, it won't be a great idea to first convert the installation disk into an ISO image and then use it with VirtualBox. Still, if the OP wants to do it, for saving the ISO for...

  7. [SOLVED] Re: Can't install Ubuntu 10.04 with 12.04 already installed

    Try a Live USB or a CD instead of DVD as others suggested.

    There is no reason for reformatting the whole drive and start fresh. HDD installation can't/won't/shouldn't prevent booting up a...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Regarding the "no such partition grub rescue" problem,

    So, I guess you are trying to boot Windows and don't want to see the Grub menu on start-up, right?

    [SOLVED] Re: Add Windows 7 to Grub - Ubuntu 14.04

    Just run this command:

    Hopefully it would list Windows in the output there. If it does, it will automatically add it to the Grub menu and will automatically set Grub to show...
  10. Re: DualBooting - Install windows 7 after xubuntu

    Ok then. Boot into a Live USB/CD and use GParted to resize your Ubuntu partition. I would strongly recommend to backup all your important data.

    In the space that you free up, create a new Primary...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Regarding the "no such partition grub rescue" problem,

    You can use both a Live USB or a CD/DVD, whichever available. And no, it doesn't need to be the same version but make sure it isn't very old. Grub2 was introduced in Ubuntu 9.10 and anything newer...
  12. Re: DualBooting - Install windows 7 after xubuntu

    In the current setup, it looks quite difficult to install Windows. You'll need to shrink your Ubuntu partition as there doesn't seem to be any other choice. If it isn't an old install, and you feel...

  16. [ubuntu] Re: Laptop Specs - Hardware compatibility?

    The best thing to do will be to boot a Live Ubuntu USB and test all your hardware. Otherwise, all of that hardware sounds familiar and should be compatible with Ubuntu.

    [ubuntu] Re: 12.04 will not shut down.

    Try:


    sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.backup
    gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

    The first command there is to make a backup of your original file.

    After making the changes:
