How do I access my windows shared folders from Ubuntu 8.04?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 7, 2008
I have installed Ubuntu 8.04 and downloaded and installed the SMB for file sharing. I can see the networks, but no pcs or folders on my windows network.
If I click System > Administration on the menu bar, there is no Share Folders as in 7.10. But if I click System > Administration > Services, and scroll down, Folder Sharing Services is listed and checked.
Can someone guide me step by step to achieve File Sharing to and from Ubuntu 8.04 on a windows network?
How to: Dual boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.10 on Samsung 900X3E
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 29, 2013
I am(was) unfamiliar with Windows 8 and Ubuntu >10.04LTS. Hence it was quiet a challenge to get my new notebook Samsung NP900X3E -A01DE ready for dual boot. I exercised one week with some frustrating moments and here I summarize what was successful in the end.
1. Become familiar with some basic functions of the pre-installed Windows 8 system. Read also about UEFI to understand the new boot concept, which you will find on any Windows 8 computer.
2. Start Windows 8, have a network connection and update the firmware of your Samsung machine. Find on the Windows tile screen the "Samsung Apps - SW Update". This will download and install the latest firmware for your computer hardware, I think also for the BIOS itself. This is import, as this machine uses UEFI to support Windows 8.
3. After the firmware update you should reboot a couple of times (at least twice!) and see if everything works under Windows 8.
4. Make space for Ubuntu on the SSD disk under Windows 8. Press "
How best to install Linux for a windows dual boot?
location: linux.com - date: July 14, 2013
I want to keep Windows because there are some programs I need which have no Linux equivalent.
I want to first install Linux on an eee pc 1015PEM netbook, before later doing my PC then my laptop.
This HDD is already formatted with 4 primary partitions of which 2 are hidden (those without drive letters).
100gb, ntfs c:
118gb, ntfs d:
c: is the boot disk. I made an Ubuntu usb 'boot disk', a windows backup (saved on an external drive) and a windows system repair dvd.
I shrunk c: by 25gb, but Windows disk management would not let be reclaim that 25gb as a new drive. First I got a warning:
The operation you selected will convert the selected basic disk(s) to dynamic disk(s). If you convert disk(s) to dynamic you will not be able to start installed operation systems from any volume on the disk(s) (except the current boot volumne). Are you sure you want to continue?
Clicking 'yes' just fails with an error message:
Dynamic disks are not supported by this operating system or server
How to resize Ubuntu partition with unallocated space w/GParted & LiveCD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 22, 2013
I currently have one hard drive with 3 partitions and 2 partitions of unallocated space. I am dual booting Windows 7 (1 partition) and another partition for Ubuntu 12.04.
I'm using Gparted and Ubuntu 12.04 Live CD with all drives unmounted, this is what i'm seeing:
/dev/sda1. NTFS. 325gb, 292gb used. Boot flag. = WINDOWS 7
/dev/sda2. EXTENDED. 92.95gb. lba flag.
/dev/sda5. EXT4. 89gb. = UBUNTU
unallocated. 39.75gb = ???
/dev/sda4. NTFS. Respawn Recovery. 7.79gb. 4.27gb used.
I CAN resize sda4 to include the 40gb of unallocated space but obviously I dont see the point in doing that to a recovery partition.
I CAN resize sda5 to include the unallocated space of 3.82gb but would this help?
Unity: how to launch gparted?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 18, 2011
I used to boot ubuntu-10.10-desktop[*], pull the System/Administration/Gparted menu, and live happy.
Now I'm trying that with ubuntu-11.10-desktop, and can't figure it out. Or launch a terminal, from which I could do something.
I'm open to anything: a 1 minute crash course on Unity, a recipe to remove Unity from a boot CD or USB stick..

How to Install WinXP after Ubuntu with Gparted
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2009
First, download a copy of the Gparted Live CD ISO and burn it to a CD. The ISO image can be found here.
To burn an ISO file with Ubuntu, simply right click on it and click “Open with CD/DVD creator”, then click Burn. After burning the ISO to a CD, restart your computer with the CD in the drive. If you have your BIOS boot order configured to boot from CD, the CD should load a menu presenting you with many options, as seen below (if not, do some googling to find out how to change your booting device order within your bios or via a hotkey during POST so it will boot from your CD-Rom drive first):
When the CD boots, you’ll be given a menu like the one shown above. You should go ahead and select the default option that is highlighted at the top of the menu. The other options in the list are for use if you have problems with the your video card, and need to use legacy drivers (try to Force VESA first if you have a video driver problem later). After selecting a menu item and pressing ente
How do you use gparted from the Ubuntu 8.10 live CD to restore partitions?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 14, 2009
I got an Ubuntu 8.10 live CD to try out on my Dell Inspiron 5000 laptop with a windows 98 OS. I was having problems getting my modem working and don't have time to deal with it so I wanted to restore my windows 98 operating system. The Ubuntu CD partitioned my hard drive so my windows os has a 3GB partition and the other 11 gb are inaccessible. I want to expand the windows partition to access the other 11 gb. I tried using gparted using the live Ubuntu CD but I couldn't expand my windows partition nor delete the 11 gb partition. Can someone offer help with how to do this? Thanks!

How to delete corrupted windows partition while keeping ubuntu OS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2012
I have 120 gigs that is allocated for the corrupted windows partition and 40 gigs for Ubuntu (my computer savy friend suggested this, so don't even ask). I would like to delete the corrupted Windows 7 partition so I can utilize the whole 160 Gigs for Ubuntu. Luckily, I have a 500 gig external hard drive from my roommate that is formatted for a Mac that is HALF FULL (and told me NOT to risk deleting any of it).
From reading online, I have come to a very frustrating cross roads. I have documents, music, and pictures on the Windows partition that I would like to keep. So I have the external in order to back all that up while I repartition the hard drive. But on the otherhand, in order to UTILIZE the external on Ubuntu, I supposedly would need to reformat it, but that would alledgedly bring risk to my roommate's documents.
I am very frustrated. Please help me through this process. All I want to do is play Shogun 2 on Steam. I bought it cheap the other week, and I have been doing r
