wireless internet + wired filesharing ubuntu / Windows 7
Hi, I've installed WICD Network manager and SAMBA. it worked to make my downloads folder in Ubuntu accesible for Windows 7 trough my wireless connection,
but I can't get it to work with a wired connection.
My internet modem is connected to a Sitecom Wireless N router which routs the internet connection wireless through my house. I want to use my ubuntu desktop as a low powered 24/7 download machine and acces it with my Windows 7 main computer.
Both are connected by a seperate Wireless Dongle to the SiteCom Wireless N router for the internet. But next to my wireless network I have a SiteCom GigaByte switch for a fast wired connection for filesharing between both desktops.
I've installed Samba and it works fine through wireless, but I can't set up the seperate
wired connection for FileSharing. I've also installed WICD network manager, but with this tool I can't find any wired connection at all although Filesharing is open on
Ubuntu/Windows 8.1 dual boot; cannot boot in to either OS

So, I've been wanting to dual boot my laptop for a while now.. decided I could do it with the help of a couple very specific tutorials, but I was wrong
By the way, I am using a Dell inspiron 15r which has UEFI as opposed to BIOS
My problem is that at this point in time, my laptop can not boot in to either ubuntu or Windows. When I power up, I get something like:
Searching media: [fail]
So first I partitioned off 100gb, backed up my stuff and load ubuntu 14.04 onto ausb stick. I then rebooted, disabled secure boot, and went straight to the ubuntu install. Contrary to my tutorial, I did not choose to manually choose partitions.. I let ubuntu take care of that (unintentionally). It seemed to install correctly. I rebooted, and could not boot into either os. I plugged my usb back in and ran the install option again. This time I chose the custom partition option. I noticed that ubuntu had been installed on some mysteriously acquired 30gb, on disk /dev/sdb, where as Windows, and my 100gb w
How do I avoid dual boot menu problems arising from Ubuntu/Windows updates?

I have just installed 12.04 LTS via Wubi duel booting with Windows 7 64 bit. Everyting is working well (knock on wood). But I have been here before. Some years ago, I set up a duel boot with an earlier version of Ubuntu with Windows XP. It also worked well for quite a time. Then a Windows update changed the appearance of the duel boot menu but everything continued to work OK. Subsequently, an Ubuntu update screwed up the duel boot menu so I couldn't get into either OS. Panic, panic! It took me a day or so to get back into Windows (cannot recall exactly what I did) but I never did get back into Ubuntu. I recall trying to use Supergrub to repair things without success.
I am far from being a geek, in the sense of being a technology expert, and when things go haywire like this I am very definitely technologically challenged.
What can I do to be better prepared for such an eventuality in the future?
I am Beta testing Lightworks for Linux--that is why I installed Ubuntu. I will transfe

Below is a link to the article in full. Your thoughts and feedback is appreciated
as a new convert to ubuntu 10.10 some months ago i feel a lot happier now than i did when i used windows for many years way back in days of 3.1 thru to win7.
The idea of open source appealed to me and the fact that is was said to me more secure from malware and viruses.
When i started using it i was even more pleased with the product. User interface is intuitive and simple to pick up .. everything was just smoother and less stressful.. happy days
I realise that i have turned up late to the party so imagine my concern when i read the following, extracts below;
"Why the Windows 8 UEFI secure boot thing has me worried
UEFI is designed to replace the old-school BIOS subsystem that can be found in every computer. (The BIOS is used to prepare the ground for loading the full-on operating system that you might have instal
Utility to log Ubuntu/Windows usage
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 7, 2010
I've had a brief search, and as far as I know there isn't something for this, but I thought I'd ask you lot here just in case.
Basically, I'd like to know how often I select Ubuntu/Windows to log in to from my GRUB menu. I'm not really bothered how the data is represented, but I thought it'd be interesting to find out just how much I use Windows nowadays. Presumably it's fairly easy to implement, and I'm sure I could write something to do it myself, but I thought I'd see if others have seen anything like this first.
Ubuntu Windows 7 Dual Boot Problem

I just installed Ubuntu onto a partition on my PC, which was running windows 7 and now can no longer boot into windows 7 (says "a disk read error occurred") or Ubuntu (hangs at startup and mouse/keyboard don't work). The only OS I can presently run is Ubuntu from a flash drive.
Ubuntu 14.04 UEFI boot partition and GRUB reinstall problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2014
I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 just two weeks ago and now after an update I have a huge problem since I'm not able to recover my system. I tried many things also boot-repair disk https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair and I have deleted both the boot partition by myself and the GRUB by boot-repair disk.
So now I have to reinstalled both. If I run gparted I get the following partitions (attached image).
The first partition in /dev/sda is the new UEFI boot partition. I have wrongly delete and reformatted it.
My /etc/fstab is this
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation
UUID=5ec28e7e-8b03-4497-924f-3ea2f2cf6713 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /boot/efi was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=CADB-73B5 /boot/efi vfat defaults 0 1
# swap was on /dev/sda3 during installation

windows installer for 64bit
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 12, 2011
I have a Ubuntu 10.10 live cd for 32-bit. However it does not work with my system--I am guessing it has something to do with having more than 4 gigs of ram.
Anyway I am wondering if there is a way to install ubuntu 10.10 64-bit with Windows 7 64-bit.
