Fundamental issue... do you know the serial number of the 'original' graphics card? If you didn't record that info then what are you going to compare against? Also checking ebay, no-one is selling graphics cards for the N5010 but people are selling mobos with tested graphics... implies that the graphics is built into the mainboard. If your shop really ...

The 3.4 GB image is not a live image. It's a full-blown installer with lots of desktop environments, packages for printing, ssh, etc. It could be use to install real (aka non-live) Debian on disks (e.g. hard drives, USB flash drives or even SD cards). If Universal USB installer failed to write it to the flash drive, try Rufus or Unetbootin (if you have a ...

The /etc/default/grub file is used to generate the final grub.cfg file that actually governs the behavior of grub. After editing the grub file you have to run sudo update-grub to generate a new /boot/grub/grub.cfg (usual location).

A solution So it looks like I have found a working solution given my particular environment. I'll first describe my goals and environment, and then give step-by-step instructions.

Is there any way I can recover my partition? You cannot recover your partition, in the sense that there is no easy way you can get that partition as it was before your accidental formatting. However, depending on the amount of data that was overwritten, you can recover some (or many) of the files contained inside the partition. To be more precise, you ...

Alternatively, you can simply specify the number for GRUB_DEFAULT for the OS you want to set as default. Go the grub configuration file located at /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and search for the keyword menuentry. This will have the OS listing that will appear on the boot screen. Assuming CentOS entry is first and then Windows entry, if you want the default OS to ...

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.

You can use some recovery distribution, try to choose from this link for example. I'm personally using SystemRescueCD, but I have install it on the USB stick. I think, that other distros can be installed on USB stick, too. Please check it on the projects' websites.

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 ...

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.

If you create the printer, either through the web ui or via lpadmin with a URL with the special characters % encoded like this: lpadmin -p fake -v smb://bob:pass%20word@rice/BLAH -P /tmp/foo.ppd then the password will be stored in the /etc/cups/printers.conf file (which is readable only by root) and will not be displayed in the web UI. Be careful though ...

What is the first drive when you boot Linux Mint from USB and what is where your Windows is installed doesn't have to be the same. Your windows is far more likely to have been installed on /dev/sdb (an SDD?) and /dev/sda is indeed completely free. Check /dev/sdb if it has your Windows partitions you can just proceed with using (some) of the free space on ...

Okay this is a workaround, I wouldn't call it a solution. I went to my neighbor's house, hooked up the RPi to the HDMI display, connected it to internet via my phone's hotspot and downloaded the VNC client. I then SSHd into it using my Windows laptop and got access to the desktop. I then again connected it to my phone's hostspot, got the IP using hostname -I ...

Save a backup of your all your grub configuration files. There are two methods I have used in the past: 1) Install ntfs-3g (which should allow your installation to see the windows partition automatically) using your package manager. It was available in the EPEL repo for me, but you'll have to find a different repo for it on Arch. Then sudo grub2-mkconfig. ...

Just find another theme with a bigger close button here http://box-look.org/?xcontentmode=7402 If you intend to keep the current theme, you must replace those three icons by hand, enlarge it. You should find your current theme in ~/.themes/NAME/openbox/ The rc.xml is irreverent from this.
