I installed unbutu using wubi on windows 8 with efi bios. I now realise I should not have done that. I have partioned my d drive and installed unbuntu using a usb drive as explained on here, but when i turn on my computer the blue screen asks me to choose windows 8 or unbuntu.
I tried installing wubi from live usb, when I reboot can't get to installed Ub13.10.Turned off Secure boot & fastboot, only 2 real boot options; Try Ubunt without install and Install ubunt.
Lost window image and dont have restore usb. Partition with windows has ubuntu title with unknown contents. Vaio restore therefore doesnt work.
I know... Wubi is bad... Wubi is dead... Wubi is lame... Wubi is hated by everybody and very dangerous, it fails on EFI hardware, everybody sings: "No Wubi - No cry", and so on...
Yes. I understand. You are right.
But... ;) I like to experiment.
Yeah. I love to try stupid things!
So, this is no newbie question. I am just a crazy nerd who loves to fiddle.
I am trying to reinstall windows on my laptop (issues with streaming and blu-ray not working with the unbuntu system). However, the cd option is missing from my boot menu. I know it was there before b/c I used a cd to upload unbuntu. I thought maybe my drivers needed updating (as the blu-ray hasn't worked since installing unbuntu), but after I download them, Unbuntu won't open them.
I want to write on a pipe an array with an unknown size.The array's values are read from stdin. Below is a part of the code that i have written so far. The problem is that using the count variable i am writing exactly 0 bytes. When i should allocate memory for the array in which i perform the read?
I am very new to Unbuntu and do not know a lot of terminology. I have a dual boot system and a multiple drive system. Windows 7 64bit Home Ed. is installed on a SSD. I just recently installed Unbuntu on a separate HD in my system that I use to back up Windows (I did not want it on this drive; however, I allowed Unbuntu to select the installation destination).
