I'm starting school tomorrow, and I want to have a working Ubuntu VM on my school laptop, so that I can ask teachers for help. Do I need to download another Ubuntu ISO, or can I copy the Ubuntu ISO already on my home computer onto a flash drive and paste and reuse it in Virtual Box on my laptop?
Previously, the Lower Merion School District has insisted that they only ever spied on lost or stolen school-owned laptops. The latest court filings show this is patently false. School for spies, or spies for school, you decide.
I will try to keep the length of this post down, but it does require a bit of back story.
BACKGROUND: Bought the Asus 1015 (HERE for specs) for cheap with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS native. Worked awesome all summer, returned to my job at an International School. Had the tech guys install Windows 8 - problems with dual install - wiped native Ubuntu - installed Windows 8.
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on a MacBook pro 9,2 and I can connect to the LAN at my school (I can ssh into it from another computer on the LAN) however I cannot connect to any server outside of the network (not even pinging Google. I have no idea what the problem is, and am hesitant to contact the admin, as I'm not sure he would exactly approve of Ubuntu on a school funded laptop.
I just loaded ubuntu in my laptop and some old school menu came with options to install try and install and etc . When I chose install ubuntu installing came but after that a page full of Û came and now I am screwed . I can't even access windows please help

I just booted into my school's computer using a Ubuntu install disk. It might not seem that hard but it's a technical school and they have them pretty locked down, maybe not for you but for me it is locked down. I am graduating in a few weeks so I am going to take advantage of this as much as I can.
I personally can't believe the way Ubuntu uses downloading. I try to go to the app website on my Windows Laptop. The only internet connection I have access to! And Ubuntu can't run on this laptop because of it's specs. Yet Ubuntu needs me to put in a code to download something. I got Ubuntu for school because LibraOffice can't run on my computer either. Get with the program Ubuntu!
