Here is what I would do, and somehow have done a few months back. Go to the arch wiki grub page and read out the relevant section for your partition table (you are likely UEFI, so read about ESP and so on). Booting into Arch manually This is a highly formative experience that I recommend trying. Assuming your Arch Linux kernel is located somewhere on your ...

Windows setup is known to overwrite your MBR. In other words your GRUB2 bootloader is gone, so you need to restore it. You can use Super Grub2 Disk to do this easily.

I'm having the exact same issue on that Laptop. What you can do is install Kali 2.0. Enable Legacy boot in BIOS (whatever it's called) and then change boot order to P2 (or whatever the DVD drive is) but not UEFI. That will work but there seems to be an issue in the latest 2016 that prevents the installation, I believe it might be a graphics driver issue.

Another suggestion: You can also just buy a second hand brand name workstation (or build a custom one but I think it's not worth it) with 32/64gigs of ram and 2 x 8 core Xeon E5-2670s for instance (+hyperthreading, thus having 32 CPU threads), with 3 drives in RAID5 and install an OS as a hypervisor and have your 3 OS's in virtual machines. This way you can ...

I of course can't give you the answer to your situation, but I wan't to try and give you some ideas on it. First of all: use SSDs! I understood that you can't affort them yet, but you will definitely love them once you have them. And I assume it is a better idea to do this whole setup once and for all, not now and in a few month you have to do it all over ...

First of all, sorry for my english. Correct me please. I need to pratice more. It's possible. You can use too a Cloud Storage, Like Dropbox ou Google Drive to help. You can use the Yumi to create the multi boot device. But you will not have persistent storage with it. So you can use Universal USB Installer to create a single OS boot but with persistent ...

pacman -S os-prober grub-install /dev/sdX (do not use partition number) grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg And then you should be all set to go, as long as os-prober is installed, it will let grub detect and preserve the windows boot partition. Note this is NOT for EFI motherboards.

You can use the other command line options of systemd-analyze to get a better overview about what delays your boot. Your command showed that most of the time is eaten up by userspace processes. Therefore I recommend investigating this further. Take a look at systemd-analyze blame and systemd-analyze plot The first one will give you a per process list ...

Yes, you can have as many operating systems installed as you have space for. There's nothing special about Puppy, just install it as you would any other distribution. You can either create a partition for it before installing or use its installer to create one during installation (I've never installed Puppy but presumably its installer will offer this ...

In your case the disk seems to be full and your home directory is big enough; I would say there is no need for complicated procedures, and the best strategy is creating different home user directories between Debian and Ubuntu bellow home. As in /home/debian/userand /home/ubuntu/user. To change the default base $HOME, both in Ubuntu and Debian, edit ...

With the old partitioning scheme there can be a maximum of four primary partitions (of which one can be used as an extended - I'm actually not sure you can't use more than one, but the use cases aren't clear to me), so shrinking one won't result in usable space.
