Ubuntu :: Operating System Lose Data During A Power Failure As Windows Operating System?

Jan 13, 2010

Will a Linux operating system lose data during a power failure as does a Windows operating system?

(If yes.) This has not come up before but I'm going to be doing some work I don't want to lose.

Could you either point me to a backup tutorial or give me the quick overview of preserving stuff with Ubuntu?

General :: Windows - Best Operating System For Home Server?

Jun 28, 2010

I'm currently switching to a new laptop that will be my main machine and currently I use a laptop and a desktop on a daily basis. The laptop will continue to be used by another member of my family but the desktop will no longer have any use (well I might later build a new desktop but this one has finished his service).

The machine in question has:
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ @ 2.4GHz
4x512MB DDR-400 (2GB Total)
Seagate 200GB SATA 7200RPM 8MB Cache Hard Drive
Geforce 6600GT 256MB GDDR3

Since I will no longer use it as a desktop/working machine I'd like to set it up as a home server. However I can't decide which OS to use for that. I have access to all Windows Versions since XP/2003 (with the exception of Windows Home Server) and I have some knowledge using both Windows and Linux so that's not a problem on my choice.

General :: Windows 7 - Different Operating System For Each User On One Machine?

Dec 11, 2010

I've come across this rare issue, I have a friend that uses some software that is particularly slow in Windows 7, the best compatibility is in Windows XP, I told him to make a partition and have both OSes in the computer, at which he replied: "Could I have a different OS for each user?", it seemed like a good question to me, so is that possible?, suppose that I login and it boots me to Vista, then I loggout and Linus Torvalds comes and logins and boots him into Ubuntu, he gets bored and logs out, afterwards my friend comes and logs in, booting into XP, summarizing:

The operating system that will be loaded will depend on the user that logs in.

General :: Installing Windows Operating System Along With Mint?

May 18, 2011

I wished to know if I can install windows 7 on my system when I am already running Linux Mint 10(as the only operating system on my machine). That configuration is called a dual boot. If you install Win7 first (or it is already present), THEN install linux, you will find that grub notices both and you will not need to mess with the MBR. The better solution is to load mint, add VirtualBox, and install Win7 into a virtual machine. Then you get to run Linux and Windows AT THE SAME TIME!

General :: Change What Windows XP Considers To Be A 'protected Operating System File'?

Apr 1, 2011

At work I'm using a windows box with local and network drives. One of drives I have mapped is my Linux home directory (We have separate windows and linux accounts and home directories here). When I view it from windows, all of the files and folders beginning with . are shown, as would be expected. (Although . and .. aren't in any folder)

Just wondering if there is a way to tell windows to not show anything starting with a dot. I was hoping there's a registry entry or something that defines what a 'protected operating system file' is, so I could put dot files in the same category as thumbs.db etc.

General :: Windows - Does The Operating System Dispatch Events On Write To Disk?

Jul 11, 2011

I was wondering if there is some way to determine when a file finishes writing to a directory on both Windows and Linux (obviously, they will probably be two different commands). This is mostly so that, instead of constantly polling a directory for new non-temp files, I can set up a program to simply listen for the completion of a write-to-disk (it seems better to do things that way).

Ubuntu :: No Operating System Found?

Sep 2, 2010

I got a new laptop today and the first thing I did was to install Ubuntu as a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything seemed to work the first time I loaded Ubuntu after installation, and Windows also seemed to work. Then, Windows Maintenance said there was possible disk corruption, so I restarted the computer and now I get this error when trying to load. After reading around about similar problems I think it might be a problem with the grub bootloader. It is 64-bit if that makes a difference.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Get Into Operating System

May 17, 2011

The issue I've been having is vague so I'm unsure if anyone can help me but it's worth a shot. The other day I was booting my laptop and this is what ended up happening and has continued to occur on successive boots:[URL] Each time it boots this is how the screen is characterized. For example: [URL] After this, continuing the boot process, the screen does this--which makes sense since the Kubuntu boot screen is this color and this where it should typically appear (I installed Kubuntu some months prior to this issue.): [URL]

After this screen, the monitor goes blank and becomes unresponsive. It usually flashes to black and then appears to turn on--becoming a slightly lighter shade of black.

Then, nothing. I can't go into tty. I've tried booting with a live CD but the issue persists and hangs, saying: soft lockup cpu 0 stuck for 61s. I've tried taking my laptop apart but I'm not familiar enough with hardware to do anything productive.

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 - Operating System Not Found

Apr 2, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on an old IBM T21 laptop. It starts very happily, and I am able to partition the disk & copy the files to the HDD. However, when it loads the desktop there is an icon for the CD drive (and install disk). Everything appears to be fine, but I don't see any confirmation of the installation being completed. The CD drive does not open when the button is pressed. When I restart the laptop, I get the message 'operating system not found'. Starting the machine using the CD works fine. The disk shows that the partitions have been created, and I am told that Ubuntu 9.10 is installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Operating System Not Found?

Jun 2, 2010

I formatted my 2nd hard drive(IDE) inside of windows. So I had a clean 80 GIG HDD. I downloaded the wubi installer and allowed it to have 30 GIGs of the newly formatted hard drive. I restarted it and it just used my 250GIG SATA drive. I then restarted and pressed esc. to make it use the 80 GIG and it said operating system not found. I then deleted it and tried again. Same result. I then reformatted it marked it as active and installed Ubuntu again and it did boot the 80 but it said the NTLDR is missing.

Ubuntu :: Set Up A Dual Boot With Another Operating System?

Sep 26, 2010

I have installed an external drive on my Windows 7 PC and therefore feel able to try to set up a dual boot with another operating system, and Ubuntu is the obvious first choice: however on the Ubuntu site the only options avaiable seem to be to install to a stick or on a new partition on the Windows C: drive. I couldn't really fathom installing to a stick and nothing seemed to run off the DVD to which I wrote the .iso file. I most definitely do not want to alter the C drive.

Seems to me it would be a good idea to have the option to install to any drive partition of one's choice. My son-in-law who uses Linux a lot in work suggested a web site explaining how to install Linux on an external drive, but that entails opening the PC and disconnecting the C drive. I assume that is because otherwise I would lose the Windows installation. My interest in PCs is most definitely directed towards systems and software, not hardware so I don't trust myself poking aound inside.There is presumably an explanation of why there is no simple way to ty out Ubuntu etc. but I can not find any explanations and would be grateful for a pointer about where I should look.
