Why this has happened I am no expert but from what I understand I think this issue is caused by a mistakenly placed bootflag. Whenever you are installing a linux OS for dual booting you want to make sure the bootloader is installed on dev/sda (i installed it on dev/sda5 which is probably why i got the grub rescue error) To fix this (it worked, at least ...

I've figured it out. I'm supposed to run export DISPLAY=:0 before running urxvt, which I wasn't able to do since I made my Cygwin.bat file run urxvt directly. That explains why the extensions "weren't working".

I just went through a similar decision making process. Distros are huge in number & variety. The packages vary like no tomorrow. The more you read, the more confused you will get. So, I figured I will start with a test install of Ubuntu as a stepping stone and then figure out which direction to go from there. I installed Ubuntu lts 12 and 14 but its ...

You can use "Remote Desktop Viewer" and connect using RDP protocol to windows machine (you need to allow this on windows side). You can't do this using ssh, since windows is not running sshd server nor X11 client by default.

It happens to me time to time with my dual boot on my laptop, I normally fix it with the live (usb or cd ) and reinstall the grub at the same place we're it was doing a chroot on to my Os partition

There is a lot of tutorials in internet, it doesn't matter WIN10 or WIN8(8.1). First install windows, then linux.

It appears like the empty lines contain an invisible (unprintable) character, and the server is trying to run it as if it were the name of a command; hence the error : not found [No such file or directory]. Delete the empty lines or ensure they're really empty. Edit: OP's comment confirms that it is indeed the case, as the code was written under Windows. On ...

--hide=PATTERN in the fine manual looks promising, e.g. set a shell alias for ls that includes appropriate things to hide.

You could swap the first partition entry in the partition table with the second one using the dd tool. I advice though that you make a backup of your files (or filesystems) before trying this procedure! I also won't claim a high degree of reliability afterwards because it is not common practice to have partition entries in descending order. Note for ...

You can't swap sdaX for sdaY, which wouldn't do anything in Windows anyway. Your problem is a Windows problem, not a Linux problem: use the disk manager thingy in Windows to set a letter drive to the NTFS partition.

I had exactly the same problem. I installed Windows 7 on IDE disk, later tried to switch to VirtIO - got BSOD on boot, tried to install the drivers in recovery mode - does not work. I solved it with a little trick. Leave your boot disk as IDE and add a dummy VirtIO disk. Add a CD-ROM with VirtIO drivers for Windows (the link is Win-64 CD ISO) and boot. ...

Which version of debian have you tried to install. Can u try taking the same installation medium and reinstall grub again. Lotz of links are available in internet for grub re-installation as per OS version.

If you read the man page for efibootmgr it's pretty straight-forward. Basically if you run efibootmgr with no arguments, it will list the boot entries. Each one has a 4-digit hex number. Then run efibootmgr -b XXXX -B with the appropriate number to delete that entry.

Add the following to /etc/default/grub: # fix broken grub.cfg gen GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=y EDIT: Change the contents of /etc/grub.d/41_custom to the following and then run update-grub: #!/bin/sh cat <<EOF if [ -f \${config_directory}/custom.cfg ]; then source \${config_directory}/custom.cfg elif [ -z "\${config_directory}" -a -f ...

Well, you could use win32 Disk Imager utility to burn the iso which i am sure will work for you but if it doesn't work, you could use rufus and try to use different partition schemes till you get the right one since you can't determine

The easier way might be to "restore" windows and then install fedora. (Regarding shared ESP and the fact that some distros are easy at formatting the already existing one, that's why I didn't go for the "shared" one and ALT Linux makes a separate EFI System Partition just in case...) If you want to have extended fun anyways, read ...

Note that you can't modify an ISO image: this filesystem is designed to be read-only. You'll have to extract the image, modify the files, then build a new image. I'm sure there's software to do that on Windows, but I don't know which. You can try manipulating the files with the Cygwin utilities. An initrd is a filesystem image, typically ext2, for which ...

sudo mkdir /boot/efi will create the necessary directory. Perhaps the installer only creates it during the GRUB install, at the point where it decides whether you need the EFI version or not.

Try MC for Windows Note: I have never tried it

There are multiple versions of RDP protocol: original 4.0, which is a clone of ITU-T T.128 protocol 5.0 - which is still used by rdesktop (and not even fully) 5.1, 5.2, 6.0, 6.1, 7.0, 8.1 and 8.1 As you can imagine, each new version of RDP is better, not only by introducing new features, but also by further improving performance and overall user ...

As you can see from gwilli's answer RDP is not RDP because there are many different versions of the protocol with many extensions and client and server are negotiating for a protocol version they both understand. It is in the nature of things that two Windows versions likely agree on a newer and better performing version of the protocol. I can't say ...

0xC0000022L's answer is thorough for the Windows side of things. The Mac can recognize Linux's symlinks; however Linux cannot recognize aliases made in the Mac's Finder (symlinks created using ln -s work fine).
