Need help booting into Ubuntu. How to create EFI partition; boot repair did not solve
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 30, 2013
So I have been trying to create a dual-boot for Windows 8/Linux for a while now. Due to the laziness of HP, I am unable to disable UEFI or move the Legacy boot order above UEFI, so I need to install Linux in UEFI. I'm currently trying to install Ubuntu 13.04. I can boot from USB fine, go through the installation process fine, but it just goes straight to Windows every time. I install as "something else" (creating alongside Windows doesn't work either). I create a "swap" partition, and then I create an "ext4" partition with mount point '/'. Is there something else that I need to do, a /boot partition or anything?
I ran boot repair, which did not solve this issue. When I ran boot repair, I got the message "EFI detected. Please check the options." I don't really understand which options I am supposed to check, or what I am supposed to do with those options. After running boot repair, it said to "Make BIOS boot on sda2/EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi fi

mount.nfs: Input/output error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 20, 2007
I have been trying to use a common $HOME on our 2 dedicated servers via
NFS and it fails. If I use udp the mount fails with this error on the
mount.nfs: Input/output error
while /var/log/messages shows an authenticated mount request on the server.
If I try to mount via tcp it gives me a no route to host error.
rpcinfo will work as long as I do not run it as root.
I suspect there is something blocking this network traffic. I have
appropriate entries in hosts.allow and /etc/exports. I have disabled
selinux and turned of iptables. I have started the appropriate daemons
on the server side. I have tried using other machines on which I know
this works as both client and server and I get the same errors. Do
you have any ideas about what is going on?
mount.nfs hangs forever nfs4discoverservertrunking unhandled error 512
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 18, 2013
I have 3 newly upgraded Fedora 18 systems. 2 of them cannot make an NFS mount, while one does (slowly). I cannot determine what is wrong.
The command below
# mount.nfs walden4.local:/opt2 /opt2
hangs indefinitely. When I abort it with an interrupt, the message log adds the follow entries:
[SOLVED] CentOS fails to mount NFS share on boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 26, 2012
CentOS does not mount a NFS share during boot. However, after boot, I issue mount -all, it mounts the NFS share without issue.
Here is /etc/fstab's entry:
126.96.36.199:/depot /depot nfs _netdev,hard,wsize=8192,rsize=8192,rw,bg,intr 0 0
Any advice is appreciated.
Portable Ubuntu how do I start it?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 16, 2010
I previously posted about how I could simultaneously view my Windows and Linux files/windows on the same machine, and was pointed towards Portable Ubuntu. It seemed just what I wanted, but the link to the download page is dud, as is the link to the company (demonccc).
I found the zip file elsewhere and duly downloaded and unzipped it. However the page above instructs us start it with the batch file run_portable_ubuntu. No such file exists.
The 2-line ReadMe.txt tells us to start it with pubuntu_Xming.exe. However this just bombs out with the error message "No valid configuration file". It gives us no hint as to what that file should be.
Has anyone cracked this yet?

FOG server Fatal Error: Failed to mount NFS Volume.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 21, 2011
Hi guys and girls,
lady's and gentleman,
I have successfully installed Ubuntu desktop 10.04 LTS in a VMware ESX virtual machine. And then i installed latest FOG server on it. A view days ago. Also tested it and it works. Pulled and Deployed an image. Without sysprep. Just pull and push for the sake of testing. Which is good.
I have also another Windows File-Server. And a shared FogImages folder there that i mounted in Ubuntu so that i could use it for images i pull. But it gives me the following error since i (with my collegue) have setup to automatically mount the share on Ubuntu.
Error "Fatal Error: Failed to mount NFS Volume."
My collegue is a littlebit more expirienced Linux than i am. So for him it was question of minutes which for me could be hours. So he fast fixed it here.
What did we do:
we added fogpw text tile to the /etc/ folder. And then added this line to fstab in /etc/:
//FileserverIPADRESS/FogImages /media/fogimages cifs credentials=/etc/

How To install ELMER Multiphysics software
Following my previous thread about installing OpenFOAM,
now is time for ELMER, this software is an ideal complement to OpenFOAM, ELMER also uses finite element to solve Partial Diferential Equations which are applied to numerous scientific and engineering problems, So here we go
Athlon/Pentium other similar (but also supports other architectures)
Memory 640 MB (well my PC has that amount, you've got to test in yours)
200 MB Hard drive (the installation takes aprox 150 MB)
LINUX Ubuntu 5.10 Breeze Badger Kernel version 2.6.12-9-386 (I don't know what would happen with another version, just test and tell me)
Good DJ music (i.e. Paul Van Dyk) to listen while you install this nice piece of software
