"NTLDR is missing" error when booting Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS from USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 26, 2013
Hello! I am having an issue that I hope I can describe accurately. I have had Ubuntu 11.04 for many years (so my experience with upgrading/installing Ubuntu is quite limited), and am now trying to do a fresh install of 12.04.2 LTS (32 bit). When I try to boot the installation from my USB drive, I get the error "NTLDR is missing. Press ctrl+alt+delete to restart" and am unable to proceed. From what I have just read, NTLDR is a loader for Windows NT, so I have no idea why I would be getting such an error while trying to install Ubuntu ... I've never had Windows NT on this laptop (was Vista before Ubuntu). Here's what I did .... -- Erased existing files on my 8bg USB drive -- Downloaded source disc image "ubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-i386.iso" from Ubuntu -- Used Startup Disk Creator to put the boot file on my USB drive, got a message that the installation was complete and I can now run Ubuntu by booting with USB device inserted -- Restarted computer with
How can I edit Grub on Ubuntu 14.04 to boot from CD drive?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 12, 2015
I have updated my laptop fom Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, but something went wrong, so I have to use the installation CD to repair Windows. But when booting the computer I get a dark screen and it wont let me access the BIOS or the select drive menu, I have tried hitting all F keys to access, but so far no luck. Before the update, I had Ubuntu 14.04 installed, so after booting I get the Grub menu, but it won't let me boot from an USB drive from the command line because of security reasons, and I don't know the command to select the CD drive from the command line. I made a Google search, but all the information I've found is outdated, but from what I understand I need to edit the Grub menu to make the CD drive a boot option, how can I do this?
[bootrepair] Windows 8 / Ubuntu 12.04 dual boot problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 16, 2013
Recently got a new Dell XPS15 laptop. The laptop came with Windows 8 by default (no provided installation media). Have been having some real difficulties with dual booting Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 8. Running on EFI, in installed ubuntu, after which grub would not boot into Windows, I used a Ubuntu systems disk and followed the steps to restore grub via boot-repair, after which everything was working correctly.
For two weeks this was working, then today suddenly I could not boot into windows, I decidedly ran boot-repair again, however this did not solve the issue. This time, I noticed in the grub boot menu some differences in the item names, now have:
- Windows UEFI recovery bootmgfw.efi
- Windows Boot UEFI recovery
The first two options are producing a blue windows 8 screen with the follwing message:
"The boot configuration data file is missing some required information 0xc0000035"
The EFI/Dell lines produce

Ubuntu 12.10 very slow comparing to Ubuntu 12.04. How to dramatically speed it up?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2012
I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my virtual machine. This comptuer is low spec PC. What I have noticed was drastically slower responses for anything in Ubuntu comparing to Ubuntu 12.04 Unity 2D. If I open terminal and type some letters, they are displayed few seconds after I type them. Also if I move my mouse to left-top corner to close-min-max buttons it takes about three seconds to this buttons to be displayed. Using Ubuntu 12.04 I had none of this performance problems and comparing to Ubuntu 12.10 it was super fast. Currently performing so dead slowly I see Ubuntu 12.10 useless.
Is there any way I can turn of some of the fancy features like fading out windows etc. I need some instruction to dramatically speed-up Ubuntu?

Ubuntu 12.04 install/boot live cd blinking cursor
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 26, 2013
I have a computer that I am trying to boot 12.04.3 (64 bit) from dvd. I can adjust boot settings ( I have tried nomodset,etc...) but when I try to run Live without installing I get a black screen with blinking cursor. Consequently, I have a live USB with 12.04.2 (32 bit) that I can boot from (although it takes almost 10 minutes to load). I don't think the problem is graphics card related since I can get computer to run on live usb disk. I have DVD-ROM plugged in on SATA3 A0. I have tried booting in both AHCI and IDE and I get same errors either way. The goal is to install ubuntu 12.04.3 AMD64 and dual boot other OS, but want to at least get live to work first to monkey around a bit before I install. All hardware is fairly new (purchased from new egg May 2013) and should be 64 bit compatible so I don't think that is the issue either. Please suggest additional options to try. I am out of ideas. The motherboard is ASUS Z77 Extreme 4 and boots to UEFI not bios upon selecting <del>

cannot access ubuntu 12.04 SAMBA share from windows 7 using hostname
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 19, 2012
I've been trying for days to get this working, and everywhere I look online it seems no one has a definitive answer, so here is the run down:
I have an external drive attached to my ubuntu 12.04 machine, "nicholas-desktop." I have the entire drive shared over the network via SAMBA. If I try to access the drive from windows 7 by using "\nicholas-desktop" it fails saying it cannot locate "nicholas-desktop." However, if I use the current IP address assigned to my machine by my router's DHCP server by typing "\192.168.2.XXX" I have no problems accessing the share. if I try to ping my ubuntu machine's hostname from windows it fails. The same happens if I try to ping my windows machine, "nicholas-laptop" from my ubuntu machine. Again, if I use either machine's assigned IP address it works fine. Can someone please help me get this working? I don't want any workarounds like setting a static IP, or DHCP reservation, I want to be able to resol
