I create my USBs with this tool. It works perfectly when I select it as a boot device. Maybe your boot menu is disabled by default, so make sure you enable it in your BIOS Settings (that happened me in a Packard Bell Laptop, for example). Try to find out which key is the one to access the boot menu, as it depends on the brand. Source: I also have Windows ...

I use Poderosa since a long time. It works beautifully with cygwin.

Based on your clarification, one answer is "shell scripting". Even to me, that sounds like a snarky answer, but it really isn't meant to be, I just don't know a better way to phrase it. You would end up with a script that looked something like this: #!/bin/bash java -jar <jarfile> -option1 -option2 --extended-option-1 You could also add $* to the ...

Reviving an old threat, however I stumbled across this while doing my own search. So rather than make a new thread - Here's what I found: http://babun.github.io/ The core of Babun consists of a pre-configured Cygwin. Cygwin is a great tool, but there’s a lot of quirks and tricks that makes you lose a lot of time to make it actually 'usable'. Not ...

There are several solutions I found so far. I think the most stable and good is using NoMachine (built on NX protocol). You need to install one on the client which is a Windows in my case. You can get from here. And one on the server, which is Linux Debian in my case. You can get from here.

The solution to this question is to join linux computers to Windows 7 workgroups which is described in this URL http://askubuntu.com/questions/571685/ubuntu-14-04-lts-windows-7-sharing I wish to commend Teoma for helping me to answer this question.

Those 2 links explain things quite well, it's just a matter of double checking everything. Here's a couple things I do.. For Ubuntu shares: You should run "sudo apt-get install samba" on Ubuntu to get all the necessary components. Then you can configure the Ubuntu shared folders in /etc/samba/smb.conf & restart samba "sudo service samba restart" I have ...

since kali 1.6 until kali 2.0 (sana) , i am pretty sure that kali on usb gives errors in most of cases ! except if you created your live usb using DD on a linux box. i can't tell you that if you're installing last kali distro (2016) i haven't tried it yet! but as suggestion here's another way to install it while running ubuntu : simply install KVM ...

Presuming that your local machine ("A") is a POSIX machine with e. g. OpenSSH, you can do this one of two ways: You can do it ad-hoc every time you connect with arguments to the SSH client: ssh -L13389:serverC:3389 username@serverB rdesktop localhost:13389 # Or point any RDP client to localhost:3389 Or, for a more permanent setting, you can add the ...

You do not state what OS your client, A, runs in your example. I'll assume there is some sort of command line ssh client available. Then, you can use you@A $ ssh -L54321:serverC:3389 serverB -p 12322 -l yourloginnameonB to create the tunnel. This command line needs some explanation. Let's do this part by part. The -L switch causes SSH to create a ...

You can generate the ssh key and add generated SSH key in the file ~/.ssh/authorized_keys. Seems that root login is disabled in sshd_config file. You can check it also.

Assuming you have sufficient access rights to the device, you should be able to access the hidden partition from the VM by creating a special vmdk file that will map the raw partition to a virtual device. You need to first identify the wanted partition with something like: C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox> VBoxManage internalcommands listpartitions ...

Couple of general thoughts I had over this general question : (1) During Windows shutdown, most services will generate atleast one event on terminating. Sometimes each service may have many events. Eg "NTP Service terminating", "Printer Driver got signal to terminate", "Printer Driver is flushing the queue" "Printer Driver Exitting". These Events are ...

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 ...

Try to see if there is an entry in the disk list with sudo fdisk -l Then try mounting it with sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media To find the correct /dev/sdb location for your external drive look at the result of sudo fdisk -l.

You'll need to get the GPU's serial number(s) and compare that. However, unless Dell have a tool for interogating the GPU's serial number, (you might be lucky when checking the BIOS/UEFI for information somewhere), the only way would be to physically check the serial number stickers :(

Typically this is done by adding the setting user to the /etc/fstab entry which defines the mount points. Further reading: mount(8) Normally, only the superuser can mount filesystems. However, when fstab contains the user option on a line, anybody can mount the corresponding filesystem. fstab(5) The fourth field (fs_mntops). This ...

Debian 8.2 should support UEFI just fine, provided you use one of the official installation images. Secure boot is not currently supported, however, so you should switch that off.

Prepare work: prepare a startup USB HDD disk, you can burn an Fedora.iso into it by unetbootin. That will help you boot and reinstall the grub after installation of windows os which will overwritten the bootloader. prepare a windows installation dvd. Action: 1 format the windows partition and install new windows os 2 use fedora USB HDD disk, to reboot ...

I would be inclined to say the USB adapter seems to be needing an external source of energy (e.g. USB power alone is not enough to keep using the disk) However, the fact that you are hinting the adapter works with another disk and both devices do not seem to see the disk points more to a dead disk internal controller. I have had colleagues in the past ...

In linux, right click on the executable file and click on Permissions. Check the box Allow Executing the file. And try to execute the file.

There is no explicit one-one correspondence between Unix and Windows permissions, although they are analogous. Cygwin and MinGW exploit that analogy to imitate Unix permissions on top of Windows filesystems. WinSCP could have been written to use that type of analogy when copying to Windows, but it relies on the inherited folder permissions when creating ...

Its not such. I tried it several times and there is no loss in execution permission. But for your case you may try: chmod 777 try the above with root privilege is linux and then try to transfer it.

Files in Linux and Windows are handled very differently. Windows does not know the executable bit of Linux file permissions. That information (including the other permissions) are lost when transferring files from Linux to Windows or vice versa. Most probably the scp client at the Windows side sets the permissions of the copied files "the Windows way". That ...

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!

Unfortunately, somewhere on the way, you decided to encrypt your home directory, so basically, you need to restore from your most current system back-up. Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news

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.

You wrote: I can boot Windows if I unplug my SSD So I wonder if grub is used as bootloader? If it's so, you will have to swap your disks in grub configuration: 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.

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: ...

Make sure your [ipcs] implicit share permissions allow guests. EDIT: having seen your "server" system is a windows one, i would like to point out that the default behaviour of a windows client is to try to log into the server using the current credentials - if that doesn't work, it prompts the user to provide alternatives. the IPC$ share on the windows ...
