While you indeed cannot boot and install Windows from an ISO file, you can do this: Create a GPT Create two partitions and create file-systems: a large partition with NTFS (type 0x0700, must be the first partition else Windows Setup might not see it) a small (10 MB suffices for FAT16, 100 MB for FAT32) partition with FAT (type 0xef00, EFI System Partition)...

Comment:- You may soon get a future problem - You are (probably) using too much space in / size: 28G used: 25G (94%) - it is likely that you have an excessive number of kernels installed. You have not lost any data and you do not need to reinstall Cinnamon. I would expect that it comes down to your video card. Even when Cinnamon has crashed, your computer is ...

It sounds that with Linux 5.9+ there are some "issues" with the Bluetooth stack. Removing [IdentityResolvingKey] Key=... fix the issue of bluetooth mouse that after the reboot not connect anymore. Ref: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bluetooth#Problems_with_all_BLE_devices_on_kernel_5.9+

PE32+ is a public specification that was chosen for a reason (see the note on page 15 of the UEFI Specification 2.8B). Note:This image type is chosen to enable UEFI images to contain Thumb and Thumb2 instructions while defining the EFI interfaces themselves to be in ARM mode) It has nothing to do with dependency. Many specifications were developed by a ...

According to Asus, OP's SABERTOOTH Z87 includes an Intel I217-V NIC. This led me to a description of the problem on ArchLinux forums: [SOLVED] Ethernet issues after booting Windows (Intel I217-V (e1000e)) You should test on your system if the methods in these two comments (well three with this one leading to a first workaround) correct the NIC's behaviour in ...

There are lots of questions here. I'm just going to answer the question about the missing windows 10 indicated by the title. Ensure you have the package os-prober installed. apt install os-prober should do it. This application is used by grub to detect other operating systems. Next run sudo grub-mkconfig. The output is printed to stdout. You should see ...

The problem has fixed itself - as part of doing standard OS updates, I noticed that grub now shows on boot and the nvme partitions show in File Manager, more details in OP. Thanks to all who contributed!

You could do a "manual" install from a LiveCD, I think Boot a live CD, execute fdisk -l | grep EFI, note the partition number mount that somewhere add a folder hierarchy similar to this /boot/efi# find EFI/debian/ -ls drwx------ 2 root root 1024 Jun 27 2019 EFI/debian/ -rwx------ 1 root root 1533296 Aug 1 13:02 EFI/...

Yes it is.G As GRUB is a stand-alone boot loader and can be installed onto a computer that doesn't have Linux installed, to boot those operating systems that are installed. It is also used in other OSes as *BSD family. In order to achieve it you can either download grub itself and run the install procedure from the grub shell: # grub-install /dev/sdX where ...

While Windows's fast start up is known to put your data in shared NTFS partitions at risk (you really want to turn it off, at least if the shared partition is the Windows system partition), it has definitely nothing to do with eOS not recognizing the NVMe SSD. I am nearly sure that we can rule out everything which might be already stored on that SSD as ...

VirtualBox doesn't use a direct connection to your hardware. It creates virtual hardware so you can use it on the virtual machine. The only way it can use a wireless card is if you use an external wireless card and that share that adapter.

Thanks, everyone A friend of mine just dropped me this awesome method which worked like charm :D umount /dev/sda5 mkdir /sda5 mount /dev/sda5 /sda5 ls /sda5 and add the following line to /etc/fstab (To mount the partition after every system reboot in the /sda5 folder) UUID={YOUR_UUID} /sda5 ntfs-3g defaults 0 0 please note that {YOUR_UUID} must be replaced ...

lighttpd can be built under Cygwin, or you can use the already-built lighttpd package in Cygwin. The lighttpd executable can be run from the windows CMD prompt or as a Windows service. Yes, the lighttpd executable links against cygwin.dll, but you do not have to be inside a bash shell to run the lighttpd executable. tl;dr: just run the lighttpd executable ...

Speculation: Using multiple EFI Partitions is a non-standard approach and can lead to some issues. AFAIK, GRUB should still be able to work with that - however I couldn't find the issue here and I don't have a working setup for reference. Alternative solution without GRUB rEFInd is a boot manager that I can confirm to be able to handle multiple EFI ...

libbde/bdemount uses FUSE to create the volume so you can unmount/close it using fusermount -u /mnt/bdem1

I managed to fix the issue with the help of the comments. Thank you all! For completeness, I quickly state all the steps I took to fix this: Quickfix - If you quickly need to boot without solving the actual problem Insert a livestick with a functioning bootloader (I used Ubuntu 20.04 with GRUB) Once the GRUB from the livestick started, interrupt the ...

cryptsetup currently doesn't support unlocking BitLocker devices with a clear key. So you'll need to use dislocker with this device. There is unfortunately still a lot of BitLocker features we don't support in cryptsetup. Feel free to report an RFE issue on cryptsetup GitLab. (Btw. It's weird, it doesn't show the correct error message, it should say: ...

I don't know if it will work on uefi mode. I had the same problem with a legacy mode installation on a 2010 laptop. I solved by installing os-prober. Then I type "sudo os-prober" and it returns the already present installation of windows 10. After that I typre "sudo update-grub" And finally Windows 10 has been found. Hope this can help ...

I wouldn't even bother messing around with windows file systems. The cleanest job is to just copy the whole windows partition with dd to a new patririon on your new hard disk. In fact, if the new disk is of equal or larger size, then don't even worry about partitions -- just copy with dd the whole raw disk, and after that, you can easily expand the partition(...

If you just copy files from one NTFS partition to another there's a high chance your Windows won't boot at all. You'll need to use ntfsclone for that. Speaking of your specific error: you're most likely missing an NTFS-3G compression plugin. It's not clear what your distro is but in Fedora the package is called ntfs-3g-system-compression. According to ...

For me, the winbind Daemon does not run by default (The OS is Centos 8). I have to start it manually. sudo systemctl start winbind And this solved the problem. <3

When I originally asked this question Docker for Wsl was implemented with Hyper-V & LinuxKit by the docker team. I didn't work for me because I had Windows 10 Home . Now that the WSL 2 has been stably released, the answer to how to use docker on WSL is available on the Official Microsoft Docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/tutorials/wsl-...
