comment ASUS ZenBook Linux install fails
I wish someone could explain why shrinking the windows partition would help ubuntu live boot! I assumed live boot USB images would load themselves into memory, and wouldn't touch disks. Anyway, ubuntu 15.10 is installed (I chose to remove factory windows that I would never use)

comment ASUS ZenBook Linux install fails
Thank you for response. I'm familiar with installing a dual boot system, the question is about ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW-DS71T that you didn't mention in your response. It boot into USB but does not even bring up Ubuntu live. Any comment?

I checked all images I had, and created bootable USB with unetbootin and pendrive. Please check the rdsosreport and comment.

comment vaio grub removal after default windows setup
It seems, within Ubuntu-live, you can install lilo, and repair your MBR, by sudo apt-get install lilo and sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr. Vaio boots all-right now, still any alternative fix are welcome.

comment network interface does not become active although onboot enabled
using the system-config-network-cmd I got furthur with the troubleshooting. It seems that somehow the DNS is mis-configured in the file, although I have always used the system-network-config commands to add DNS server. Here is extract of system-config-network-cmd Component: system-config-network Version: 1.6.2 File "/usr/sbin/system-config-network-cmd", line 292, ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 24DNS2=4.2.2.4 Local variables in innermost frame: confkey: ONBOOT DevEthernet.Prefix=24DNS2=4.2.2.4 DevEthernet.PrimaryDNS=8.8.8.8
