Open /etc/resolv.conf and check that it contains a valid DNS server (e.g. google): nameserver 8.8.8.8 Normally when modified you won't need to restart the network manager, as it will detect and apply the changes.

Mounted file systems can't be resized. In the screenshot of gparted, there's a key symbol between /dev/sda2 and ext4; that key symbol indicates /dev/sda2 is mounted. It can't be unmounted while the Arch Linux system on sda2 is running. To fix: Reboot from a liveCD, (or USB equivalent), and run gparted from that, right click on /dev/sda2 and click '...

I solved it by re-installing Linux Mint making sure to boot the installation DVD in EFI mode and to choose the EFI partition in the drop-down menu during the installation. Apparently the cause of this issue is the installation of Mint in EFI mode but without selecting the EFI partition in this step. The first boot worked perfectly, so I consider this ...

If it's BIOS rather than UEFI... Install os-prober if it is not already. Then run update-grub. It should automatically detect the windows install and put it in grub.cfg so you can boot it. If UEFI, I'm not sure why it should be different, but docs seem to imply it's relevant somehow.

i can tell you the shrinking with windows caused your problems! at least since then your drive was converted to a "dynamic disk" (as you can see on your screenshot). a long story made short: dynamic disks are a "microsoft-invention" to overcome some limitations of msdos-mbr (and make interaction with other os more complicated)... the solution is to ...

It should ask if you want to install GRUB... that would be terrible if not. Every distro I have used either asks(debian,ubuntu,suse,manjaro) or has a way to disable it(centos I think), or requires you to do it manually (arch). But if you can't prevent it, you can just fix it later. Bootloaders are easy to change later on Linux systems. Optionally back it up....

Have an Asus Laptop here so it's a little different but I too have multiple EFI on the same system and have to press F2 on boot in order to access the EFI/BIOS and choose the relevant drive partition from which to boot. To avoid doing that you can just change the drive order. If the Grub2 boot loader doesn't work it is very trial and error but this page ...

Eject your Bootable Flash drive and insert GParted CD, check which of the devices/partitions have got the boot flag on, if it's other than your native HDD(which it used to/should be), revert & save it(don't let the flash be bootable) and try rebooting. Your HDD has already got the grub, it could just be pointing through the flash as while updating you ...

You can keep the bootloader for each os on their respective drives and use the BIOS to choose which disk to boot. Every computer I have ever seen has a key you can press during the BOIS POST screen to take you to a menu of which device you want to boot from. Sometimes you need to enable it in the BIOS first. Generally the key is F8 on desktops but I have ...

In order to install ntfs-3g as suggested in another answer, I had to first install epel-release: sudo yum install epel-release Simply trying sudo yum --enablerepo epel install ntfs-3g resulted in a repository not found message. ...

For the specific purpose of using grub-reboot, I found out that I can mount the Xubuntu partition from BunsenLabs and do grub-reboot --boot-directory=/media/.../boot ENTRY and it works.
