A couple ways to accomplish this: Make a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart/. This will run when you log in. Us something like sudo cp input.txt output.txt as the command. A more robust solution would be to create an Upstart job, which will run when your system boots.

I'm not an expert for boot-problems, but i'm afraid you are right and messed up the installation of the bootloader (GRUB) with the efi-partition! I never had a problem with the installation on devices with efi. Just read the Release Notes and turn off secureBoot! I would advise you to install GRUB with SuperGrubDisk in the MBR of the harddisk (in your case ...

I'm not an expert for this kind of problems, but it seams you don't have a usable bootloader (like GRUB) installed! I also guess that you finally killed your bootloader with the "recovery disk for windows"! --> for the future: If you don't use only Windows forget the tools from Microsoft! They ignore every other system than Windows and so for the most time ...

Log files were filling up the disk space in /var/log. I just deleted the /log folder and created a new one with 'mkdir log'.

Do you get to the grub menu, I assume you do not. I also assume that you do not get to a Windows 7 boot menu because you mention "no operating system" message. I would boot into a Linux live CD, run sudo fdisk /dev/sda and toggle boot bit on the sda2 partition. You have two partitions that are bootable when you should only have one, reboot. You should now ...

The same thing happened to me, I ran: sudo fsck.hfsplus -f /dev/sda2 and then tried again and it worked perfectly. Note: You should replace /dev/sda2 to whatever corresponds to your Macintosh partition.

GParted is often worth using because it helps avoid several nasty mistakes. I guess the main advantage of command-line tools here is to have more visibility of details. This can be useful in unexpectedly fragile situations (at least once it's broken, the details might help you realize why). However I wouldn't recommend using them to others unless they ...

You need the ntfsresize utility from the ntfs-3g package, which can resize NTFS file system. However, be sure to backup the partition before you make any changes to it, since sometimes Windows have other ideas of what the resized partition should look like. The backup can be conveniently performed with the ntfsclone utility (same package), since that saves ...

Basicly, your debian is booting, you just have an issue with your video drivers. Maybe you raise a separate question for that issue. Regaring loading Windows, you can try to use rEFInd instead of grub. (Suggestion from the arch forum). According them, you can also dowload their boot loader for an USB stick for recovery purpose.

Change the BIOS from UEFI to legacy. When I did that, the USB appeared in the boot menu when restarting my computer.

In addition to disabling hibernation & fast boot, if you were to make enough free disk partition space in windows then you shouldn't need to modify your windows partition (sda2) to install Linux, you could just install to a new or empty partition you created from within windows. But if you have a Windows 8 &/or EFI/UEFI laptop, you should probably ...

Regarding your second option, of creating a VMWare image... yes you certainly can. It is called a P2V (Physical to Virtual) migration, and you can do a hot clone, rather than a cold clone. First, you need to put the original Windows 8 disk back into the machine. Boot it up. Connect an external usb disk large enough to hold the Windows 8 installation, to ...

It turned out, that it all was a bootloader problem. The pxe-mof message is showing when there is no installation media on the network. Because there is no bootloader, the BIOS doesn't understand that there is an OS installed and goes through all the boot media (ordered in the F2 Setup). Usually, the "Boot from LAN" option is the last, and if there is no ...

To hide entries that you don’t want to see anymore, simply uncheck the checkbox next to ...
