It appears like the empty lines contain an invisible (unprintable) character, and the server is trying to run it as if it were the name of a command; hence the error : not found [No such file or directory]. Delete the empty lines or ensure they're really empty. Edit: OP's comment confirms that it is indeed the case, as the code was written under Windows. On ...

You can use "Remote Desktop Viewer" and connect using RDP protocol to windows machine (you need to allow this on windows side). You can't do this using ssh, since windows is not running sshd server nor X11 client by default.

You can't swap sdaX for sdaY, which wouldn't do anything in Windows anyway. Your problem is a Windows problem, not a Linux problem: use the disk manager thingy in Windows to set a letter drive to the NTFS partition.

If you read the man page for efibootmgr it's pretty straight-forward. Basically if you run efibootmgr with no arguments, it will list the boot entries. Each one has a 4-digit hex number. Then run efibootmgr -b XXXX -B with the appropriate number to delete that entry.

Why this has happened I am no expert but from what I understand I think this issue is caused by a mistakenly placed bootflag. Whenever you are installing a linux OS for dual booting you want to make sure the bootloader is installed on dev/sda (i installed it on dev/sda5 which is probably why i got the grub rescue error) To fix this (it worked, at least ...

--hide=PATTERN in the fine manual looks promising, e.g. set a shell alias for ls that includes appropriate things to hide.

You could swap the first partition entry in the partition table with the second one using the dd tool. I advice though that you make a backup of your files (or filesystems) before trying this procedure! I also won't claim a high degree of reliability afterwards because it is not common practice to have partition entries in descending order. Note for ...

Add the following to /etc/default/grub: # fix broken grub.cfg gen GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=y EDIT: Change the contents of /etc/grub.d/41_custom to the following and then run update-grub: #!/bin/sh cat <<EOF if [ -f \${config_directory}/custom.cfg ]; then source \${config_directory}/custom.cfg elif [ -z "\${config_directory}" -a -f ...

Note that you can't modify an ISO image: this filesystem is designed to be read-only. You'll have to extract the image, modify the files, then build a new image. I'm sure there's software to do that on Windows, but I don't know which. You can try manipulating the files with the Cygwin utilities. An initrd is a filesystem image, typically ext2, for which ...

I just went through a similar decision making process. Distros are huge in number & variety. The packages vary like no tomorrow. The more you read, the more confused you will get. So, I figured I will start with a test install of Ubuntu as a stepping stone and then figure out which direction to go from there. I installed Ubuntu lts 12 and 14 but its ...
