I was advised to put all three rpm packages in one directory and run one command and so I did and it worked. So I put kmod-wl-4.2.3-300.fc23.x86_64-6.30.223.271-4.fc23.x86_64.rpm kmod-wl-6.30.223.271-4.fc23.x86_64.rpm broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-1.fc23.noarch.rpm in a new directory and ran sudo rpm -ivh *.rpm It worked and after rebooting the system I ...

An NTFS Easy2boot drive will boot multiple linux ISOs with persistence even if the linux being used does not support NTFS. You can even boot from an exFAT E2B drive to a linux distro that does not support exFAT. E2B creates a 4th partition on the E2B USB drive and 'maps' the ISO to that partition. When the ISO boots, it sees the 4th partition as having a ...

GRUB relies on configuration files that are typically written in the host OS -- Elementary OS or Mint, in your case. What's likely to happen is that, when you install Elementary OS, its version of GRUB will take over the boot process. It will probably make Elementary OS the default but detect the Mint installation and make it possible to boot it as a ...

This is most likely the cause of an option in Windows 8 and windows 10 called Fast Startup which behaves similar to hibernation and keeps a snapshot of the system so when you boot up, it will load faster. Uncheck the option that says "Turn on fast startup". You also need to disable hibernation. Control Panel --> Power Options > shutdown settings

In Fedora, you can use the following script. Note that this is mostly the same as described in http://askubuntu.com/a/18186/149422, with a few modifications for GRUB 2 in Fedora. #!/bin/bash if [ `readlink /boot/grub2/grubenv` == "/boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grubenv" ]; then sudo mv /boot/grub2/grubenv /boot/grub2/grubenv-original sudo ln -s ...

Not sure you are running KDE or not, but I have a similar issue and I'm quite sure it's related to KDE. This isn't a permanent fix but it will get you out of a pinch in the mean time. What works for me is you switch TTY by pressing alt+F2 and then back to your TTY where your X session is running. I used to recycle the gfx monitor trigger by simply ...

Do not write anything on the hard disk. and do not reformat With every write operation you make you're at risk of replacing existing data; making it unrecoverable. Do your data recovery attempts (use tools like the ones Stephen Kitt suggested) and hopefully recover as much data as possible. And then start out new. Do not forget to file a bug report to the ...

You could give TestDisk a shot, ideally on a copy of the disk (assuming you have another computer you can copy it to...). TestDisk can recover partitions, if the disk hasn't be rewritten, and failing that PhotoRec can be used to recover some types of data. Do read all the documentation before using either tool!

I'm not an expert, but I have observed that, if you don't turn off the fast boot feature of windows 10 before installing linux, these types of complications occur.

Booting windows with grub on a non-first drive is a bit tricky: you will have to swap your disks: If you have installed DOS (or Windows) on a non-first hard disk, you have to use the disk swapping technique, because that OS cannot boot from any disks but the first one. The workaround used in GRUB is the command drivemap (see drivemap), like this: ...
