Some claim that Linux is too hard, but its difficulty stems from application developers not yet giving it the attention it arguably deserves. This may be about to change.

I have a WD My Passport 1 TB external hard drive which is giving me some problems on different linux machines:
When I plug it in, nothing happens
Gparted when detecting connected devices says "Error opening /dev/sdb: No such device or address" and it doesn't list the hard drive
Typing on terminal sudo fdisk -l the hard drive is not listed
This happens on both my main Debian PC and on my Raspbe
So I have this laptop that I bought for $900, it was a Window 8. I had it for only about 4 months and it crashed (I should of expected this from a Windows), so I took the useless hard drive out and got a new one.
I bought a solid-state 120GB hard-drive for $100 online and figured out that it was a little too big for my computer (I should have paid attention to the dimensions carefully).
I am fairly new with Linux when it comes to mounting hard drives, so hopefully this is a simple question. I recently purchased a 3TB hard drive that would have read/write access with both Mac and Linux. The first step I took was to format the hard drive partition on a Mac system with "Windows NT Filesystem (Tuxera NTFS)".
I have the Linux enterprise server version5.1, In this server i configure a lot of application.
Recently i heard that we can copy the OS contained Hard drive to copy another hard disk if present runing hard disk crashed we can booth with that hard disk to start work.
the first hard disk contain data every thing it will abaliable like MIRROR of hard disk.
So now that I have the hang of installing linux on the same hard drive as my windows hard drive (onto a partition), I am wondering if I can have more than one distrobution of Linux on the drive. Will the GRUB window show me three choices instead of just two?
Introduction to Wine and CrossOver
One of the most commonly cited causes for the dual-boot syndrome is the lack of availability of <insert-key-software-here> for the Linux OS. Open source developers have been hard at work bringing Linux applications to Windows, however getting Windows applications on Linux is a far harder task.
Currently I have Windows 7 installed on my main hard drive (64gb SSD). I recently installed Linux Mint on a secondary hard disk (1TB HDD). My issue is that when I turn the PC on there is no boot menu to allow me to choose which OS I want to boot into.
