Seems like the reasonable thing would be asking him to compile it to Linux as he really opposes to release the source code (shouldn't be big deal though if he wrote it "posixly"), Cygwin is a "layer" that provides Unix API under Windows and Wine is a "layer" that provides Windows API under Linux. Since in the end of the day the software written for Cygwin ...

There doesn't seem anything particularly wrong with that, at least in a read-only setup. As orion mentions in his hopefully soon-to-be answer, permissions could be an issue, and other issues would pop up if you allowed modifications. But it's not your only option. Most trivially, you could sync the files on to the Linux box, instead of accessing them over ...

It turns out that I needed to run the following: sudo update-grub This updated my /boot/grub/grub.cfg file and got rid of the windows 7 option.

If, as it seems from the info you gave, you have no other OS installed than Linux, an option would be to disable os-prober. Two ways of doing this: Set GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true in your grub defaults file (/etc/default/grub? - Not sure on Mint) Remove the os-prober package (if it's missing, grub-mkconfig will skip that part) What may be happening is ...

Grub's menu comes from a configuration file, not by scanning hardware. However, the configuration file can be created by scanning hardware, which you would want to do after you've changed partitions around. The command to do this is either grub-mkconfig (Debian derived) or grub2-mkconfig (Fedora derived). I presume Mint would be the former but in any ...

Personally, it seems the entire hard drive failed, or the entire hard drive is corrupt. At any rate, I've experienced this before. The files are impossible to access.

Details needed - did you move all VM configuration between those machines ? I mean VM machine configuration files between these two host machines too ? I'm asking because I'm not sure how cloud services do that as I doubt each machine has the same configuration and IDs for hardware components. Also, I remember having imaging VM machine in previous job, that ...

Basicly, your debian is booting, you just have an issue with your video drivers. Maybe you raise a separate question for that issue. Regaring loading Windows, you can try to use rEFInd instead of grub. (Suggestion from the arch forum). According them, you can also dowload their boot loader for an USB stick for recovery purpose.

This will work with WinXP and (probably) won't with Windows 7. I need to run Internet Explorer to access bank information and run this from a VM. I have a copy of that on my server, in case I have broken my workstation setup. The workstation and server used to have the same motherboard and (AMD) processor (although at different speeds) and things worked ...

It turns out that SFTP crashes if any text is output to the console. I added an echo to my ~/.bashrc, which killed it. I've added the following to the very top of .bashrc: :<<COMMENT SFTP breaks if any thing is output to the shell, and it doesn't need anything in .bashrc anyway. Description of the following line of code: "If file descriptor 0, ...

Change the BIOS from UEFI to legacy. When I did that, the USB appeared in the boot menu when restarting my computer.

Regarding your second option, of creating a VMWare image... yes you certainly can. It is called a P2V (Physical to Virtual) migration, and you can do a hot clone, rather than a cold clone. First, you need to put the original Windows 8 disk back into the machine. Boot it up. Connect an external usb disk large enough to hold the Windows 8 installation, to ...

You can't tell what each partition is for from /proc/partitions, that only tells you the partition numbers and their sizes. Given the numbering, with a one-sector sda3 and no partition numbered 4, this is an MBR-type partition table where sda3 is an extended partition; since Windows needs to boot from a primary partition, the Windows partition has to be ...

You do not need a second hard drive. All you need is a second partition. The procedure in brief is as follows: BACKUP IMPORTANT DATA Create a new partition Install Windows in this new partition Reinstall Grub (the bootloader) BACKUP IMPORTANT DATA These are major operations and while they should not cause data loss, a power outage, a crash or human ...

It turned out, that it all was a bootloader problem. The pxe-mof message is showing when there is no installation media on the network. Because there is no bootloader, the BIOS doesn't understand that there is an OS installed and goes through all the boot media (ordered in the F2 Setup). Usually, the "Boot from LAN" option is the last, and if there is no ...
