First of all, you must not have several ESPs. The one and only ESP in your system can contain any number of bootloaders in form of EFI applications. Now you need to stick with one EFI System Partition, copy there all files from the other one and then delete the other one. After that, re-install systemd-boot (or any other EFI boot manager of your choice) on ...
sudo mkdir /boot/efi will create the necessary directory. Perhaps the installer only creates it during the GRUB install, at the point where it decides whether you need the EFI version or not.
First of all, using /dev identifiers for these purposes is generally a BadIdea™ since the disk letter can change (if you have more than one disk). See the Arch wiki entry on persistent block device naming. Second, Gummiboot is a dead project and while it is still an option to use it, you should consider moving to systemd-bootd (which is actually just ...
Here comes a memo to resize an NTFS partition using commandline with ntfsresize (from the ntfs-3g / ntfsprogs package) and fdisk, that should work for Windows XP-to-8 versions. Note that GParted does all the following for MBR/DOS as well as for EFI/GPT drives if ntfs-3g / ntfsprogs is installed. My references are at the end. OK in this scenario I have a ...
Make sure Linux is not in hibernation by turning off the computer when in Linux. Start Windows. Go to Start->All Programs->Accessories, right-click on Command Prompt and choose "Run as administrator". Run the command chkdsk volume: /f, where volume is the the drive letter. Make sure to turn off the computer and not put it in hibernation each time you ...
Since you're on Ubuntu, you can also use the Startup Disk Creator. It's a bit easier to use than dd, IMHO.
Just copying the files is not enough because you will miss the bootloader. You should dd the image to the usb stick: dd if=kali.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M; sync to start it. Be aware, that this will delete all data on the stick and the partition scheme will not be optimal.
cfdisk has been unmaintained for a number of years and is not capable of properly managing modern disk drives. Use parted or gparted instead.
CHS geometry was used in older Windows operating system like Windows 95/98/ME since they are DOS based. Windows XP and above align at a specific sector and do not check CHS alignment. Those newer Windows will not be affected by that warning. Beware that moving a newer Windows operating system partition makes them unbootable, partclone.ntfsfixboot will most ...
The article you've linked basically says that new hardware that ships with Windows 10 will no longer need to provide a way to turn off Secure Boot. In particular: Nothing will change for existing hardware. This rule is only for new hardware. Windows 10 itself can work either way. Microsoft is saying that manufacturers may force Secure Boot to be ...
As it seems I was wrong to expect that LMDE should just boot. When I inserted a truecrypt rescue disc and left the loader by pressing Esc GRUB loaded just fine and I could start LMDE. By restoring the Volume Header in the repair options it works without the disc. However I didn't manage to boot Windows again so I gave up on the dual boot and switched to ...
