I found this Q&A on AU that sounds like what you're looking for. It's titled: How to hide users from the GDM login screen?. There are several answers, but one in particular sounded the most promising. This one involved editing the schema file, /etc/gdm/gdm.schema and changing this section: (original) <schema> ...

To anyone who installed on IDE and now wishes to switch to virtIO: A convenient way to do it is to create a secondary (non-boot) virtIO disk, boot the VM -- at which point Windows will ask for the virtIO drivers, which it somehow refuses to install otherwise -- and subsequently switch the boot partition to virtIO.

Seeing that you only have 13769531 Blocks (/dev/sda5), which is 6.5 GB's, tells me that the "successful" Kali Linux installation ended up either on /dev/sda5 (in the extended partition of /dev/sda2) but with errors. Or that you mistakenly selected /dev/sda1 as the partition to install Kali Linux after writing three new partitions to your disk. But if you ...

If the Ubuntu installation replaced or overwrote your windows partition (and data)...I'm afraid the only alternative left for you is to reinstall the Windows systems either from scratch or using your backups.

From what I remember the share is in /media. More importantly, I could not get it to auto mount the first time, so had to manual mount. A reboot of the guest also does the mount. I think the share is also done via smb, so I think it is accessible via network share immediately, and automatically. — Sorry I don't have a system to test, this is all from ...

I've used rufus to make bootable drives on Windows in the past and it has worked well. You could also try iso2usb

It says towards the end: Starting with CentOS 6.5, one can create a bootable USB key simply by installing the ISO file on the key using a program such as Win32 Disk Imager. This will delete all information already on the key. So, just use the Win32 Disk Imager tool, with the provided images. Unetbootin should also work: UNetbootin, mentioned ...

Windows needs to have a primary partition for some system files. It can use logical partitions, but only as a second partition for extra data. So you'll need to shrink the extended partition to make room. Fortunately, the partition you want to reuse is the last one in disk order. So Delete the last logical partition /dev/sda8. Shrink the extended ...

Not a direct answer to your question (though I agree you need to fix grub) but there is some background experience about your problem here in the links below that people have already passed, asked and been answered: Installing Ubuntu on a Pre-Installed Windows 8 (64-bit) System (UEFI Supported) How can I install Windows after I've installed Ubuntu? ...

First of all, windows need to be in the first/main partition in a multi boot disk. Check with a partition tool if windows still there, if yes, see if it's on first partition, if yes reinstall the bootloader. You are probaly using grub, it is easy to be installed, just search on internet

I would suggest using an NFS mount to copy your files. To install Services for NFS components: Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager. In the left pane, click Manage Roles. Click Add Roles. The Add Roles Wizard appears. Click Next. The Select Server Roles options appear. Select the File Services check box, and then click ...

You probably mounted the wrong Windows partition mounted. Look for a small partition of 100 or 300MB (boot Partition of Windows), mount it and then run the command again. If you still are having problems add following to the end of /etc/grub.d/40_custom: menuentry "Windows"{ set root='(hd0,0)' chainloader +1 } This is assuming the Windows boot ...

Debian (or any other Linux distribution) will work without swap partition - just don't create one during installation. You can use swap file instead of partition. The swap file can be prepared by the following example commands: sudo fallocate -l 512MB /swapfile sudo mkswap /swapfile The first one creates a 512 MB file, the second one format it as swap ...

Mount the windows Partition. (If you can't mount install ntfsprogs-2013.1.13-5.el7.x86_64.rpm and ntfs-3g-2013.1.13-5.el7.x86_64.rpm) Run as root grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

There is always a possibility of something going wrong with the files during or after transit, although in your case it might be more likely to be at the point things are written to tape. If the extra effort warrants it, I would calculate the MD5 or SHA1/SHA256 sums for the files on your Linux box and do that again on the Windows box on which the tape drive ...
