If you squint, VM security looks a lot like LAN host security. It's just another machine on the network, with the same sort of attendant risks. If you would willingly put a Windows 7 host on the LAN, you shouldn't be especially worried about putting a Windows 7 VM on the VM host. It is possible to lock a VM down to the point where it is less dangerous to ...

I think what you're really looking for is this Q&A from the Wine HQ forums titled: [FAQ] [RFC] How can multiple users share an installed Wine application. === How can multiple users share an installed Wine application? === Wine is a per-user app; every user has their own Wine Registry, with the list of installed apps for that user. So one ...

man ssh -L [bind_address:] port:host:hostport Specifies that the given port on the local (client) host is to be forwarded to the given host and port on the remote side. This works by allocating a socket to listen to port on the local side, optionally bound to the specified bind_address. Whenever a connection is made to this port, the ...

I have been able to run a virtual machine in VMware using the original installed partitions, but only with Linux as the client (Windows host) and not the other way around. The problem is that the virtual machine is significantly different from the real machine, and Windows is much less capable of coping with that than Linux is (Android is probably more like ...

You can give a try to unetbootin. You need a USB pen drive for it

Having the windows drivers won't do you any good in Ubuntu, because linux can't use them. A quick search turned up one vivobook model which uses an Atheros AR9485 wifi chip. This is supported by the ath9k kernel driver, which should be included with any stock linux kernel. the wireless card drivers appear to have been corrupted or deleted You have ...

They measure the sizes differently by default. Under Linux, you can specify the --si parameter (which uses powers of 1000 not 1024) with df and du to get numbers that match up with how Windows calculates the sizes. Compare $ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 119G 29G 89G 25% / versus $ df --si Filesystem ...

Free space in filesystems is always just a guess. Different numbers may mean different representations or different results of guessing. I wouldn't be afraid of that.

You need both EFI boot instructions in the same partition, otherwise the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. Take a look at your boot directive: /dev/sda6 That means that every folder path you use will be in relation to that partition. /dev/sda6/EFI/Microsoft doesn't exist. Simply move/copy the Microsoft folder in /dev/sda2/EFI to ...

Using all your answers, I found my way in this order : Installation : HDD configuration like Sergey said. When creating the VM with virt-manager, don't create the disk immediately (unclick "enable storage..."), clic "customize configuration before install" on the next screen, and create the HDD manually just after, with this options : - Storage format: ...

There are two ways: either run a Linux MP3 tag editor and arrange for it to display on your Windows machine, or run a Windows MP3 tag editor and arrange for your Windows machine to see the Linux machine's files. Run a Linux GUI program from Windows On Linux, SSH lets you run commands remotely. This includes the ability to run GUI applications on the remote ...

I assume your Linux FS is one of ext2/3/4. If so you can use Paragon ExtFS for Windows or ext2fsd. It will be mounted locally on your windows machine and then you can use your software to edit mp3 tags.

Microsoft provides VMs with various versions of IE at modern.ie for website testing. You can use VirtualBox to run these on Linux. Currently, they're offering these Internet Explorer – Windows versions: IE6 – XP IE8 – XP IE7 – Vista IE8 – Win7 IE9 – Win7 IE10 – Win7 IE11 – Win7 IE10 – Win8 IE11 – Win8.1

As you are going to sell it, I guess you don't need the data in here. You can then run the Windows installer from the ISO you have, delete all existing partitions and install Windows with the partitions of your choice. If you are not confortable with Windows partition manager, you could also delete everything from a live CD of Linux.

Try this and don't forget run os-prober if you want to use Windows.

From what you tell it seems like you have installed GRUB to your USB-device that you installed from. This is why the installer does not boot when you boot from your USB-device. Resolve it by booting into Debian with the USB-device, then remove it once you have booted. Login to the Debian installation and run sudo grub-install /dev/sdX where X is the ...

Edit in "/etc/default/grub" the line GRUB_DEFAULT=x to the index of the menu entry which should get selected by default. Then change GRUB_TIMEOUT=x to the amount of seconds you like to see the menu. after that run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

I agree with @slm that this is something of a borderline question. The truth is, Windows incorporates its own remote access protocols as your Unix system incorporates its own. Microsoft Powershell has matured a great deal since it was introduced with Vista, and it can do most if not all of the things you'd expect a shell script to do for you on your Windows ...

I would probably dissuade you from using Cygwin just to crutch in a Bash script which will likely need to be highly customized anyway so that it can run on top of Cygwin + Windows. This seems very much like an XY Problem. Instead you'd be better served in directing the running of a script thats been written in a scripting language that's native to windows ...

You would use ssh to access a remote ssh server and run a command. For example ssh user@remote.server.address command If you want to know how to set up a windows machine as a ssh server, that is a question for the windows forum. However, everyone's suggestion to use cygwin and open ssh is a good idea.

This can be done by installing Cygwin and an openssh server on your Windows machine. Cygwin will come with bash, which can run your script, and openssh can be installed under Cygwin, and will allow you to login to the Windows machine remotely. Before logging in, you can transfer your script to the Windows machine using scp, and then run it directly with ssh. ...
