Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Booting & Backing Up Of Both Systems

Jun 1, 2010

I am trying to find out the best way to setup my new quad core PC. My thoughts were to use Windows 7 64bit for games and ubuntu 10.04 64bit for everything else eg, movies,photos,music, docs etc, email and web browsing backup ubuntu fully and backup an image of windows or backup both systems fully.There are several ways to do this from the googling i have done, but unsure what is the best method Option

1) Install windows, install ubuntu by partition hardrive - standard easy process.
2) Install windows, install vmware player 3, install ubuntu -URL...
3) Install windows on one hardrive and install ubuntu on another hardrive - have not been able to find a tutorial for 10.04 yet

All of the above options i have no idea how to backup both systems.My reasoning for wanting ubuntu is because of my bad experience with windows( viruses, malware, and operating system getting slower over time). Seeing that my PC will be used by all of my family, i do not want them to use windows if possible. If a dual boot system was to be used, master would be Ubuntu and slave windows, ie when my family turns on PC ubuntu loads.

Installation :: Quick Dual Booting Operating Systems

Jul 26, 2010

I have no clue how Linux works and I haven't had much experience installing/dual booting operating systems. Most of my knowledge in computers comes from fixing errors with crappy hardware or Windows. Now I want to learn how to use a computer instead of how to fix it. Hence, I want to have Windows & Linux on my computer. My laptop(Acer Aspire 4530) has two hard drives, one is Vista and the other was empty(until I filled it with stuff). What is the simplest method to install Linux (or any of its variations) on this computer? Do I just install/partition all of Drive B to Linux and leave Drive A for Vista?

General :: Cause Any Harm To Use Dual Operating Systems Like Windows In Terms Of Losing Data?

Aug 12, 2011

I have Windows 7 working on my laptop. I have 20GB space unpartitioned. I want to install a flavor of Linux like Fedora or Ubuntu in that space, but I have heard that keeping a dual OS configuration sometimes results in losing data stored on the hard disk. I've also heard that it may sometimes cause unrecoverable problem because when Linux is loaded on hard disk it will take over the boot loader from Windows.

Is this correct? Moreover, I have 6 partitions in Windows, but if I use a Live CD for Ubuntu or Fedora to boot, then it is not showing some partitions -- sometimes it shows only 4 or 5 partitions. What might be the problem, and how to resolve it without formatting the whole hard disk and repartitioning it?

General :: Dual-booting Windows : Why Install Windows First?

Apr 1, 2011

I've read that, when configuring a dual-boot system, you should install Windows first to avoid any issues.Some questions: I'm assuming this has to do with the boot loader so: How is Windows boot loader so different that this matters? If I'm totally off, please explain.Is this the same case with Windows 7 and Windows XP? Depending on question 1 of course: Will installing Windows later on mean that it will definitely not work or just that you might encounter issues later on? Some tutorials are kind of ambiguous about that point.

General :: Dual Booting Windows 7 And OpenSUSE - 11.3 ?

Feb 28, 2011

My PC is an older model Toshiba Satellite that I've upgraded a bit to handle Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Recently, I joined a CST program at a local college, and there is an entire mod on Linux. I'm at the top of my class, and I aim to stay that way, so I found out what distro they were using, and downloaded openSUSE 11.3. I tried to install it once, and I failed, though I didn't screw up my Windows...much.

I've created an entire 132GB partition, and a 3 or 4GB swap, but I keep getting an error about the boot loader not being on a partition entirely below 128GB. So, I set the partition for 127.98GB, and still with the error.

I'm no slacker when it comes to working with Windows, but when it comes to Linux, of any type, I'm horrible. I need to be able to install the fully functional openSUSE OS alongside my Windows 7 Ultimate, without completely screwing my Windows install up. I can recover, so I'm not afraid to try new things.

General :: Failed At Dual Booting Fedora And Windows XP

Jan 31, 2010

I have just installed Fedora 12 on a 10GB partition separate from the pre-existing Windows XP partition. My problem is that when I turn on my aspire one ao751h it doesn't give me the option to boot Windows XP even though when I mount the partition with XP on it the files are all still there. I think it has something to do with GRUB which I have never dealt with before or the way I set up the partitions when installing Fedora 12. How would I change the start-up screen to allow me to boot from my XP partition as well?

General :: Set Windows As Default OS When Dual Booting Ubuntu 10.10?

Nov 12, 2010

When you install a dual-boot of Ubuntu, one of the frustrating things that you'll immediately notice is that Ubuntu is now set as the default operating system in the Grub loader. There's an easy way to switch back to using Windows as the default.

There are many way to change bootup options

This is one way to change bootup option

First you have to go system --> Administration and see for Startupmanager if it is not their

Now go to Applications --> Accessories --> Terminal and type

sudo apt-get install startupmanager It will ask for your password give it now It will ask Do you want to continue {y/n}? Type "y" and press Enter After installation is over close the terminal.

Now once again you have to go system --> Administration ---> now you will see a new Startupmanager button, just press that startupmanager button it will open a window

Enter your password to perform administrative task "now you have to give your password and press enter
now you will see startUp-Manager window in that you will see Timeout

Timeout in seconds: by default it is 10 second if you want, you have to increase the second 10,20 etc.,

Default operating system: by default it is Ubuntu

if you want to change click the Tab and you will see five options that is

Ubuntu with Linux generic
Ubuntu with Linux generic(Recovery mode)
Memory test (memtest86+)
memory (memtest 86+, serial console 115200)
Microsoft windows xp professional (on/ext/sda1)

and now you go to Microsoft windows xp professional (on/ext/sda1) and click it now it will change Ubuntu to windows just press close tab after closing that window you have to restart your system just wait for 10 second and see now your system will boot windows xp by default

General :: Installing Ubuntu 10.10 On A Windows 7 System (Dual Booting) With Radeon X300/X550/X1?

Oct 29, 2010

just like most Linux distributions, will happily co-exist on a hard disk with just about any version of Windows. This is a concept known as dual-booting. Essentially, when you power up your PC you will be presented with a menu which provides the option to boot either Ubuntu Linux or Windows. Obviously you can only run one operating system at a time, but it is worth noting that the files on the Windows partition of your disk drive will be available to you from Ubuntu Linux regardless of whether your windows partition was formatted using NTFS. To day I have installed Latest Windows 7 and Latest Ubuntu 10.10 on my office system (Dual booting). This two operating system which I installed in HP dx 7200 micro towers.

System Information
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit (6.1, Build 7201) (7201.winmain_win7ids.090601-1516)
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
System Model: HP Compaq dx7200 Microtower
BIOS: Default System BIOS

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot Setup / Grub Booting Linux Only Some Of Time

Aug 20, 2010

I'm not consistently able to boot into Ubuntu Lucid on my new dual boot (w/ Win7) setup. Machine is a Dell XPS 1645 laptop. Usually it takes 1-3 tries of hard shut down and restart before the OS starts up. Boot info script results are below. Windows starts up fine everytime. What I usually get is this: Dell startup screen, then Grub2 menu, then after selecting Linux kernal a blinking cursor at upper left of monitor and it just hangs.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Dual Booting SL6.1 And Windows - After Editing The Grub.config To Include Windows

Jul 2, 2011

i am having some issues with dual booting my SL6.1 and Windows. The situation is that i recently acquired an old hard drive from a non-working computer of mine with Windows already installed (i know the windows is functional, as i tested it on my new PC with SL6.1 currently installed & everything runs fine)

The problem is that after editing the grub.config to include windows, windows will no longer boot after an attempt to install a legit version of McAffee anti-virus software which coincidently was only after the first attempt at running both OS's in a dual-boot fashion. Except past the windows start up screen before the dreaded blue-screen.
Which is weird because SL6.1 OS will still boot & works perfectly fine like always, so it doesn't really make sense.

My current setup is:
Disk 1: Solid-State:
Boot Partition
SL6 LVM1: Root Partition
Disk 2: Hard Drive:
SL6 LVM2: User, Temp & Swap Space Partitions (Different LVM to Root)
Disk 3: Hard Drive:
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

My guess is its windows MBR. The reason i say this is because the Hard Drive contents of the Windows software still appears intact when accessing the drive from the Linux OS. I don't won't to go through the rigmarole of re-installing both OS's. So hopefully their is a relatively simple solution.

Fedora :: Dual Booting Windows XP ?

Jun 26, 2009

I run an Intel DP35DP motherboard with 3.0 gig Intel processor with 4 gig of ram. Two 500 gig Sata hard drives. The first hard drive is for Windows XP. The second hard drive is four 6 different flavors of Linux and Data backups. Drive 2 the first 120 gigs is split into six 20 gig partitions with a 2 gig swap file. The second 370 gig is for file backups and Norton Ghost 2009 images.

Install Fedora 11 on the second hard drive and use the automatic partitioning tool but don't put grub on your Master MBR put it on the root partition on your second drive. When you get to the Boot Loader Configuration screen make sure you check the Configure advanced boot loader options. The next screen will give the option where to put Grub Boot Loader. It should say like sda or sdb. Sda is usually your XP Drive. From their finish loading. Put Grub on Sdb?.

Now duel booting using XP boot manager.

Go to [url] and download (It's freeware) Unzip the file and it will make a directory called Bootpart. From the Windows command line change directories to C:ootpartootpa26. Run the command bootpart. This is what you should see.

If youll notice I highlighted in red. That is you�re first Linux root partition 1: D:* Type=83

Run the command Bootpart 1 fedora11.lnx Fedora 11 Leonidas

This will add a boot line to your Boot.INI file.

My file looks like this:

Ubuntu :: Dual Booting With Windows 7?

Jan 23, 2011

I've just got a Toshiba NB 250 netbook pre-loaded with Windows 7.

I'm hoping to dual boot this (Windows 7) with Ubuntu. There are three partitions (sda1, sda2, and sda3) already created on the disk. I'm thinking of reformatting the sda3 drive to EXT4 and loading Ubuntu onto this drive. I'm not sure what's on sda1, but sda2 appears to have the windows 7 on it (though I'm not sure about that).

Ubuntu :: Dual Booting With Windows 7 Lock-Ups

Nov 21, 2010

Well to get started i need help understanding why grub locks up during boot. I installed Mint 2 weeks ago and this has been happening since day one. For some reason when trying to either boot from my distro or os the keys lock not letting me chose any of the options. what ever option is selected during the boot that would be the selection i will be entering into. This happen randomly not always sometime i would have to boot 4 or 5 times before grub let's me chose any of the option's. Here is where my Window's and Linux partition stand.


Maybe i did something wrong during installation if so is there a way to correct this problem that is occurring with out me having to do any fresh in stall's on both part's.

Ubuntu :: Booting Windows Without Dual Boot?

Jun 23, 2011

The problem is that I need to use windows as well every now and then for gaming. So I have an internal hard drive dedicated to windows out of my laptop and one inside for kubuntu. Changing hard drives out every time I game is a bit of a bother and wondered if anybody has booted into windows without fiddling about with the hard drives. Can windows be booted from outside the laptop? (e.g. by using a sata to USB converter frame)?

Slackware :: Work Well Dual Booting With Windows?

Mar 2, 2011

I'm considering trying out Slackware just because I want to try something new. I've used Ubuntu for a couple of years and Debian for nearly a year so I do have some Linux experience. I do have some questions before I begin though. I've read that all configuration is done through text files. Does this include things like changing resolution and keybindings?

- I've also read that Slackware lacks a package manager. So does this mean that I'll have to download what I want from the internet and keep it up to date myself? Is there no repository? How are packages installed in Slackware? Is it a fairly simple process?

- Is installing multimedia codecs and Microsoft's True Type Core Fonts a fairly simple procedure? What about dependencies? I've heard that it has no dependency checking. So would I have to look up a list of dependencies for every package that I wish to install?

- How is LILO? Does it work well dual booting with Windows? In Ubuntu and Debian as soon as I install the OS, I can immediately access the internet from my wired router. Would I have to jump through any hoops in Slackware or can I expect similar results?
