Ubuntu Networking :: 10.10 No More Internet After Dualboot Windows Install

Dec 20, 2010

I have a Dell XPS 420 with Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-23-generic x86_64). My internet used to work (out of the box) without any problems, but after install of Windows Vista (Home Ed. 32bit), I am unable to use the internet in Ubuntu. The network card is a Linksys WMP600N Wireless-N PCI Adapter. In Windows it works without problems.

In ubuntu, the network manager indicates that I am connected to the network, and I have an IP address in the 192.168.* range. I am able to ping the router, but unable to ping outside addresses. I have not changed anything, but still my wireless connections has stopped working.

Ubuntu Installation :: Precautions To Take When Upgrading Windows On Windows/kubuntu Dualboot PC?

May 31, 2010

I have a Vista/Kubuntu dualboot, with grub2 as my loader. Because i have read that Windows likes to ignore something else present on the system and overwrite everything with itself. So i installed Vista, then Kubuntu.Now i want to upgrade my Vista to Win7. My question is - what should i do in order to keep my current dualboot intact (Grub2 as a loader, and kubuntu fully functional). I fear Win7 might even never ask me about keeping my kubuntu dualboot, just overwrite everything. PS: My bootinfoscript output

Code:

Ubuntu Installation :: Trying To Dualboot Windows 7 - Doesn't Recognise That Windows Is There

Jan 3, 2011

So I shrunk my Windows 7 partition. Now I have a 450GB partition with Windows 7 on it and a 50GB partition for Ubuntu that is unallocated space currently. So when I go to the setup for Ubuntu, booted into using my USB flash drive, it doesn't recognise that Windows is there. It thinks that the hard drive, all 500GB of it, is free space. Going into GParted, it also seems to think that the entire hard drive is a blob of unallocated space. According to tutorials online, this shouldn't be happening. It should recognise the two different partitions. So I went into Computer in Ubuntu (Live) just to double-check and indeed all my Windows files are there and I can still boot into Windows just fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 With Dualboot To Windows 7 ?

Oct 21, 2010

I have a problem installing ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) with dualboot together with windows 7.

The situation is a follows: on the pc is windows 7 (home premium) installed, the windows bootloader is in the MBR and THIS CANNOT BE CHANGED (it's not a private pc).

I wanted to do this the way I have done with the previous ubuntu realeaes I used (8.04 and 9.04): install everything normaly and only tell the installer to install GRUB into /dev/sda5 (root-partition of the ubuntu-System). Then I used

Code:

To copy the bootsector in a file and integrate this file into the Windows Bootloader. The problem is: this file has only zeros inside (00hex), so it seems, that there is no GRUB written into the bootsector of the linux-partition.

The whole procudure works without any problems using Windows 7 and ubuntu 9.04, but I want to have the new release of ubuntu!

Ubuntu :: Dualboot With Windows 7 - No Errors - Just Blank Screen

Jan 4, 2010

I tried using Wubi to install Ubuntu 9.10. It worked fine in the Windows part of it. After the restart, I got the ubuntu option. Selected it. Something about pressing ESC for more booting option came. Then two lines of something, and then a BLANK screen for the next hour. I hard rebooted then. Selected Ubuntu again, and pressed ESC and booted into Verbose mode. Still the blank screen ALWAYS comes. No errors. Just the blank screen. What am I supposed to do? I tried reinstalling through Wubi, but the BLANK SCREEN ALWAYS COMES. I am trying an online tutorial for dual booting Windows 7 along with Ubuntu, but the guy in the tutorial says just boot live. What is that? Like just setup your BIOS and put the cd in? I am gonna try it in sometime, after my cd is burned, but still, better if I get a reply before that.

Okay, I tried with the cd, selected the option of trying Ubuntu without installing, but again the BLANK SCREEN loves me, so it won't leave. Do you think I've got a corrupt copy of Ubuntu. It is the torrent, that is linked on their official website. Should I like redownload it and try? I really want to try out Ubuntu.

With the cd I also tried checking the cd for errors option on the screen, and that too showed no errors. I want my windows installation to stay but I want to try Ubuntu along too. Still I tried installing Ubuntu, without trying to let Windows stay or something, but still, obviously the BLANK SCREEN.

CentOS 5 :: After Upgraded To Windows 7 - The Dualboot Is Apparently Gone

Aug 31, 2011

I've recently upgraded my Lenovo Sl500 laptop from windows vista to windows 7, both 32bit.

After i have upgraded to windows 7, the dualboot is apparently gone, I am no longer able to boot in linux.

My question is now, how can i fix this, or create a new dual boot?

Im currently left with two partitions, one with Windows 7 installed, and one with CentOs 5.6 installed, but as said, I am unable to acces my linux.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing Windows XP Dualboot - Error Along The Lines Of A Missing/corrupt Hal.dll

Jun 30, 2010

So I have a single hard drive with two partitions, and I am trying to install a dual boot of Windows XP and Ubuntu. However, I am having an issue installing the Windows XP component.

I keep getting an error along the lines of a missing/corrupt hal.dll after the first restart in the install. This has happened every time I tried to install windows XP, from several different discs, all of which I have confirmed to work on another computer.

I have tried several things for fixing this, from repairing the MBR and boot.ini to replacing hal.dll from hal.dl_, and nothing works. However, Ubuntu 10.04 installs and boots properly.

What I can do to get Windows to install properly?

Fedora :: 13 Windows 7 Dualboot And Hard Disk - Complete Loss Of All My Data

Oct 11, 2010

Last time I installed Ubuntu in a dualboot configuration with Win7 on one of my machines, my entire boot sector and Windows install got corrupted, resulting in a complete loss of all my data and requiring a fresh install of Windows.

I looked into this a bit after the fact, and it seemed to me it was due to conflicting hard disk geometry between Linux and Windows.

My question is, how likely is this to happen with Fedora? Is this because of Ubuntu? A bad install? Is there someway I can avoid this from happening when I install Fedora if it will happen?

Fedora Installation :: DualBoot Windows Vista And 14 - Play All Media Formats ?

Dec 13, 2010

I am planning to buy a new system. I am planning to use fedora and windows vista (I have a legal copy with me and I dont want to buy a new one. That's why no windows 7 here).

How shoudl I proceed? Which OS to install first? I believe (from reading the threads) that I should install windows vista first and Fedora second.

The main question I have is this. I heard that HDD makers will no longer ship the current HDD's in Jan. Heard that 512 byte hard drive format is to be replaced by 4KB. I read somewhere that this can cause issues when we go for dual boot. Is this true? In that case, what steps can I take to ensure no problems occur?

I really want to use Vista only for running certain applications which do not run on linux. I have heard WINE can simulate a WIN environment. But is this really true? I mean, can it simulate WIN environments perfectly?

My next question is regarding dual HDD. I am planning to go for 2*500GB HDD instead of 1*1TB HDD... So will it be better if I dedicate one HDD to Vista and 1 HDD to Fedora? (I know it will be a waste of space since I will be using Fedora mainly and hardly aropund 10-20 GB for Vista. But I can access the Vista partitions)

Does fedora play all media formats? I know out of the box it might not.. But does having VLC help?

I dont see any firewall protection in Linux. I have heard of using IPTables, but then how efefctive are those? I will be doing many online transactions and I want my system to be secure. I know Linux is pretty secure. So should I harden the security with a hardware firewall?

I will be watching a lot of DVD movies, AVI movies and some HD movies as well. Does linux have issues rendering HD movies properly? I have read somewhere that fedora has issues while Win is good and Debian/CentOS (Not sure which one was mentioned) is even better. I had a pretty powerful config in teh past and yet I have seen that my Vista machine had trouble rendering a HD movie properly.

I will be buying AMD configuration along with an ATI graphic card (sometimes). Does Fedora have any driver issues?

General :: Install A Debian In Dualboot With Ubuntu?

Feb 1, 2011

I plan to install a debian in dualboot with ubuntu (that I'm currently using). I would like to use the btrfs file system.

I know that for a single OS installed, I need to have a /boot partition (I don't think grub is able to load a btrfs partition). In my case the grub (v1.98) would stay on the ubuntu partition, not the debian one. So do I still need to have a different partition for /boot and the system ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dualboot - Install Vista Loader With 10.10?

Dec 5, 2010

I want to dualboot my HP laptop with Windows 7 and Ubuntu. The problem is that the harddrive had 4 primary partitions. So i had to delete the Recovery and HP TOOLS partions. I did that after creating my system recovry CDS. The "install alongside another operating system" option showed up. And i was really happy for about 1 minute until i discovered that it said Windows Vista loader! So now i have this:

sda 640GB harddrive
sda1 Windows 7 loader
sda2 Windows Vista loader

And when im trying to install a dualboot the Windows 7 loader dosent show up! It wants to install Vista loader but i dont have that operating system. I have read that 7 and Vista sometimes gets mixed up in GRUB can this be the case here? Is it safe for me to install Vista loader with Ubuntu 10.10?

Fedora Networking :: Wired Networking Not Connecting In 12 With Windows Internet Connection Sharing?

Jan 16, 2011

I just want to use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect to the internet. I have done a massive amount of troubleshooting, but some of it seems to contradict itself, and the only two things that I know for sure are that it used to work, and that my Ethernet cable is not the problem. When I use Terminal utilities like ifup and dhclient it seems that it can not determine IP information, but when I try to put it in manually, the "Apply" button grays out right after I finish typing it in. When I try to connect normally, in KDE or GNOME, the icon acts like it's connecting, then instead of having the connected icon, I receive a notification that "the network has been disconnected", and it goes back to the disconnected icon.

Oh, and by the way, I know that I could probably find a workaround, but I have limited resources, and this used to work. The Linux is a Dell desktop with Fedora 12 and the Windows is a Windows 7 HP laptop.EDIT: I hope that I didn't mess something up, but I accidentally used system-network-config to try putting in the IP address there, and ended up changing it back to the original settings, but the computer is now calling it Auto Ethernet in the taskbar icon, although sudo iwconfig in the terminal still calls it eth0.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Internet With Windows XP?

Jan 17, 2010

I have a laptop running Windows XP with a secure wireless internet connection. I want to share this connection to my desktop running Ubuntu 9.10 via an direct ethernet cable connection. So far in Windows I checked the "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the Wireless Network Connection Properties menu. Doing this creates a new IP Configuration. Here is an output of running the ipconfig command: Windows IP Configuration

Code:

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : home

Ubuntu Networking :: Sharing Internet With Windows

Feb 26, 2010

I have an Ethernet hub, and want two computers (both notebooks) to share my internet connection. One is running Ubuntu 9.10 and the other is running Windows Vista. I want both computers to be able to connect to the internet (I use a cable modem).

However, when I plug both computers in, I am able to get only one of them working at one time. When Ubuntu works with the internet, Windows does not work (although it sees the internet connection). When Windows works, Ubuntu sees the connection, but cannot connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Connect To Internet After Using Windows

Apr 28, 2010

I have a dual booted Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10 box and have an unusual problem in that after connecting to the internet on Windows I cannot connect using Ubuntu. I don't believe it is actually a problem with configuring my Ubuntu connections because when I get up in the morning Ubuntu connects without any problem - this problem only exists (and persists for at least several hours) if I try to connect immediately after connecting on Windows. I don't know how long the problem lasts because I usually get so ***ed off I just go to bed and then in the morning I can connect. As I have recently been forced to change my ISP due to moving house, is it possibly a problem with my provider's service and not a Ubuntu problem at? I have a second Ubuntu 9.10 box which I have to manually connect [URL] which does connect even when the dual booted one won't.

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Sharing Like Windows ?

Aug 30, 2010

Just took the plunge and removed Windows 7 from my desktop rig and I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04

I was using this PC to share my Internet (DSL) connection to any and all other PC's on my network, wired and wireless, and I am attempting to set this up in Ubuntu.

My desktop, other wired PC's, a wireless AP and my DSL modem are all connected to a 8 port Ethernet switch and I was using ICS in Windows 7 to share my Internet connection once I established the connection from my desktop.

Can this be done in Ubuntu? As soon as I make the DSL connection it says that Auto eth0 disconnects (which I set to share to all in IPv4 settings which I read on the forum is the way to share)... thus nothing is currently shared :/

In this document it states that the sharing computer needs two network interfaces... but in Windows I only used the one...

Networking :: Use Internet From Guest Windows XP In Ubuntu?

Jan 23, 2011

I am basically trying to connect to Internet in Ubuntu 10.10.
I am using my mobile Nokia 6600 via bluetooth which unfortunately isnt supported by Ubuntu .
There have been many blogs and threads on the net to fix this issue but none worked for me.
So i tried to use virtual box 3.2.12 in Ubuntu to check whether Windows XP Pro can access net from my cell via bluetooth.
It worked!!!!! But my basic intention to get net in ubuntu was to install some really good softwares in ubuntu Software centre which otherwise require downloading of lot of .deb dependencies manually.
Can anyone tell me how to use the Internet from the guest windows XP in ubuntu?
