Debian :: Remove "continue With Installation Process" From Windows XP?
Sep 9, 2011
I installed Debian 5.0.8 alongside Windows XP 64bit, and the installation went fine. However, when I choose to boot into Windows, the menu still shows the option to continue with the Debian installation. Debian was installed by burning the iso in Windows and then launching the CD rather than booting into the CD. My searches turned up with results to actually continue with the installation process, which like I said, went just fine. I want to boot right into Windows from Grub (if Windows is selected) instead of having the installation menu pop up again.
I've been running my shellscript for about half an hour now. It's taking longer than I thought to process all the data. I have the process ID of it. Is it possible to save the process and log out then log in and continue the process? I know how to pause a process using kill -pause pID and continue it using kill -cont pID. But that only work if you don't log out after pausing it.
running a large program on a remote SSH server the other day when I was disconnected. This is a large program, ~48 hours to complete, and I was disconnected around hour 40. I have restarted the program using the following (Note: I am already ssh'd into the server) ./20090427_9crossing > 20090427_9crossing.out & Now, I believe this will run the program in the background and output to the file. So, if I get disconnected again will it continue to run? If not, is there a way that I can get it to keep running?
My requirement is nearly transferring 50GB files from remote server to local server via SCP command,while transferring the data its break-en because of some reasons in 35% itself. is it possible to resume the transfer process again from this 35% process.
I am running Debian squeeze and I am trying to install hplip-3.10.5 so I can use my new HP Photosmart C4750 printer.I downloaded the automatic installer and ran it and it gave me the following error message:
RE-CHECKING DEPENDENCIES ------------------------ error: A required dependency 'cups-image (CUPS image - CUPS image development files)' is still missing. error: Installation cannot continue without this dependency. error: Please manually install this dependency and re-run this installer.
So I ran apt-get install cups-image and got the following:
raygo75@RayGo1:~/Desktop$ sudo apt-get install cups-image Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Couldn't find package cups-image
does the package "cups-image" exist? and if it does were can I find it. I have looked to no avail. I have posted a question on hplip seeing as that is were I got the script from.
I am downloading a big file on linux VPS, and I am connecting remotely via Putty to do it? Once I initiated the wget command to download the file, if I close the putty window, will wget continue to download the file in the background even though the session is technically closed?
I was upgrading from lenny to squeeze. At the apt-get dist-upgrade step, at some point (after upgrading and configuring) it tried to create a new certificate for my mail server but creation of the certificate failed, dpkg reported an error and the whole process exited with error. So I rebooted the machine and issued again apt-get dist-upgrade but now the certificate was created successfully . After that it upgraded mysql-client and the process finished.
But I don't know if configuring of the upgraded packages has stopped at the point where dpkg stopped. I suppose so, because very few packages were configured at that point. Is the solution to run dpkg-reconfingure -a (or -u ?) or dpkg --confingure -a or something else ? (dpkg has the PACKAGE STATES)
dpkg --configure --pending gives me no package for configuration.PS: At least I hope that all packages were upgraded and a few were not configured. Is there a way to confirm that all packages were upgraded ?
I had a dual boot of Ubuntu 11.04 with Windows XP SP3. I formatted the ext4 partition of Ubuntu. Now when I start my pc, it says "Unknown Filesystem" and then gives me a grub command line. How can I get rid of that and just continue using my Windows?
I have bunch of partitions on my Debian server installation, so I was experimenting with partitions and saw that is one partition fails fsck on booting time, system waits for root password or CTRL+D key combination. The problem is that my Debian machine is headless and I use only SSH to it. So if fsck fails, I can't to login to SSH (off course, because it is not loaded at this time). So I need to go with monitor and keyboard to machine and press CTRL+D.One option is to disable disk checking at startup by changing fstab file. I don't like this option. Is there any possibility to auto continue booting Debian machine ?
I have a dell Inspiron 5150. I had perfect windows XP home installation, and decided to dual boot with Ubunutu 10.04. I copied the whole C:/ to external drive, installed ubuntu, installed windows, repaired Grub2, but now, Grub2 looks something like this.
I've just migrated to Debian from Ubuntu on my server. So my first post here. I've had some problems and questions when installing and configuring Debian, now everything seems very smooth, but still I can't find answer to one question. My machine is headless and I allways use SSH to it. I have several partitions on machine so if one of them fails on booting time with fsck, I need to press CTRL+D combination to continue. In that case I need to go to the machine with monitor and keyboard and press that combination. Is there any way to automatically continue for example after 30 seconds ? Then I could log in to the system and check log files what is wrong. How can I do that ?
list step by step instructions on how to remove Window's 7. I have a dual-boot system right now. I tried checking around on the web but most topics indicate how to remove Fedora instead of Windows 7. If this topic has already been discussed, could someone please post the URL.
I have an Thosiba Laptop, with an Seagate 100 GB SATA Hard Disk. I have installed Windows XP and Red Hat on my laptop, and all works fine. I want to remove Windows and Red Hat from the Laptop and only use Fedora, but when I am trying to install Fedora the installation wizard can not detect th SATA Hard Disk. My Red Had sees the HDD as:
Currently I dual boot windows XP and ubuntu 9.10. However, I am quite happy about my Ubuntu installation and I am starting to think about my windows xp install as a waste of hard drive space.I wonder what's the best way to remove the windows xp install.I have 3 partitions, windows being the first, ubuntu being the second and the third being ubuntu's swap.I am not familiarized with the way the grub bootloader works so I am worried about breaking it if I just remove the first (winxp) partition via gparted and expand the second (ubuntu 9.10) fill the empty space.
I have recently decided to switch to linux as my primary OS. I currently have Windows XP installed on the larger partition on my machine. Is there a way that I can delete the XP partition, or at least re-allocate the majority of my space over to the Ubuntu side without reinstalling?
I have been trying to install on my toshiba satellite c655 laptop the ubuntu operating system. Anytime it gets to where i can use it as a live DVD and I would want to install, it gets to stage 3 of 7 and gets stuck. No error messages are given, the install dialog can be minimized and other task done but the installation will never continue. Anyone with idea about how to go round it.
i'm installing debian using the netinstall option, the installation is freezed in the step: "retrieving file 811 of 811" like a 40 minutes ago it doesn't go on, so my question is:is there a command to know what is happen?, is there a command to know if the installation has some errors message?
Ive installed a fresh copy of ubuntu onto my laptop, dual boot with 7. Everything runs smoothly except the grub. So in grub i have an entry of vista loader. I have removed the ubuntu recovery mode and the memtest entry so now i have 3 entries
Ubuntu vista loader 7 loader
How i can remove the vista loader? PS i have never had installed vista onto my system i bought it brandy new with 7 pre-installed.
My desktop has been running both windows and ubuntu for a couple of months via wubi. The plan is to eventually migrate fully to ubuntu though. Simple question, I hope, is it easy to effectively remove the windows side so that I don't have to make a new reinstall of ubuntu from scratch?
I have windows Vista and Ubuntu 9.04 on my asus laptop and use grub as boot manager. I tried to reinstall windows vista with the recovery CD delivered with my laptop in order to just get rid of the old installations. The Installation was OK, however when rebooting windows doesn't come up printing the error could not load GRUB Error 22.
Now I think I should remove grub from teh master boot record, and the system will supposedly work.My question is is this a solution and how do I reformat the master boot record? Can I do it with the Ubuntu instalation CD?
For the past few years, I've been duel booting my PC with Windows Vista and Ubuntu, and for some weird unknown reason Windows Vista won't even boot up pass the update screen... so I want to get rid of it.
Every tutorial I find says put the ubuntu cd in, and press install, but my computer isn't detecting the cd at start up, so is there any other ways I can remove windows without (or another way to load the cd)? I can't access Windows at all, so.. I won't be able to do anything about that.
