look for a directory named /casper/ and change the file named "vmlinuz.efi" to "vmlinuz" without ".efi". or, if the file is named vmlinuz add ".efi" in the end. the answer is from this question, next time google before you ask

if you have live linux in a hard drive and you install anothe OS on anothe r hard disk. For ubuntu just do: #update-grub os prober will properly detect other OS. If you are in gentoo run in terminal: #grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg hopefully other os will be autodetect.

I'm about to attempt this as well. From what I've read elsewhere, Kali doesn't include lvm in their default initrd. I'd suggest installing lvm and rebuilding initrd. Alternatively, reinstalling Fedora will likely result in getting the Fedora grub image, which should boot Kali fine.

Many ways to accomplish this of course, but as you noted, depends on various parameters. You noted for example that you do not want to install third party apps on the windows servers, so that limits your options of course. More info would be needed regarding your needs as well. Are you looking at sending files to 3 windows systems? 10 systems? 200 systems? ...

If no bootloader shows up in the boot process, this could be because you installed the bootloader on your ssd. Go into bios and tell bios to boot into your ssd instead of booting into your other harddrive where windows is installed.

You can always modify windows so that it loads the ubuntu bootloader instead of it's own. In windows, just open up cmd as admin, then enter: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi Make sure that this is actually the right path for the elementary OS bootloader, otherwise your system might not boot at all anymore.

you can try sudo update-grub and see if windows is detected

Solution: Activate the Windows 10 guest with a licence key for windows 10 pro and then the VM will be able to utilize all the CPU core that you assigned to it from the Linux host.

While I know this is a laptop, I don't know the brand so this is a bit of a leap. I had this happen a while back myself but due to different circumstances. I did a little digging and found this that should help you. Removing the CMOS battery did the trick for me. Link to resetting BIOS password

Ok, its an ugly workaround but for my case it should work in ~90% of cases. temPrint=/dev/shm/print fcheck_1=$temPrint/fcheck_1 fcheck_new=$temPrint/fcheck_new fcheck_old=$temPrint/fcheck_old fcheck_preprint=$temPrint/fcheck_preprint fcheck_print=$temPrint/fcheck_print printDir="/media/smb_share/temp/monitor" test -d $temPrint || mkdir $temPrint while [ ...

As always I found the solution just after asking. I actually knew this one, just forgot to do it. One has to be in the vboxusers group to get access to usb devices. It's as simple as running sudo gpasswd -a <user> vboxusers in a terminal. For Ubuntu I think it's sudo useradd vboxusers

If I understand you correctly, you want to edit files under Windows locally and run these as Python scripts on the Linux server without having to copy them manually over to the server. The easiest way would be to define X:\mapped_drive\all_folders\etc as a share on Windows and to mount it with e.g. smbmount or pref. cifs on the Linux server. Once mounted ...

Possibly a bit late but I found this, while having a similar problem. I have a Raspberry Pi B+ with samba configured as a drive store, with a direct connection to my laptop over Ethernet. My setup is as follows: several external hard drives connected to raspberry pi. Raspberry pi uses direct Ethernet connection to my laptop. I have found: high cpu ...

To tune performance of Samba, the howto has a section about speed/performance tuning: https://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/speed.html You can probably enhance your results by tuning : the read size, and the socket options, in particular, are worth tweaking.

All the files you indicate you want to more are executables. You cannot just run these under Linux. You can try to run these under wine, but you'll have more success converting your W10 setup to a VM (VirtualBox or VMware) and run the programs under Ubuntu in such a virtual machine. On the other hand why bother with W10 stuff if you already have, or ...

Some things you could try: 1) check out the output from testparm on the linux machine. 2) run copy sometextfile.txt //192.168.1.9/epsonlx in cmd on windows 3) adding guest ok = yes and/or force user = guest to smb.conf 4) Do 1) and 2) again If that does not show you your error, post the output of the above, and I'll refine this answer
