I have a Humax Video hard disk player, which enables me to copy downloaded files I want to keep to a memory stick, and hence to a computer. The files come as .ts files, which windows tells me are MPEG-2 TS Video files.
Ubuntu cannot deal with these files, though Windows can. This in itself is unusual for video, as Ubuntu is usually much better than Windows in this area.
On a computer, during the installation of ubuntu, there are two devices listed: /dev/sda for whole hard disk and /dev/sda1 (80GB) for windows. So the whole memory is used for windows. However, when I checked which OS installed to the device from boot menu I saw that they were both windows and ubuntu. If the whole memory is used for windows how there could be ubuntu as well?
Does the onboard video on the motherboard affect the X windows configuration?
My system has onboard and pcie video. The onboard video is a NVIDIA GeForce 7025 GPU, On Board Graphic Max. Memory Share Up to 512MB(Under OS By Turbo Cache). I have a pcie dual head video card installed with two monitors. The video card is a GeForce 8400 GS, with 512mb memory.

I have a 2006 Dell Dimension 9200 which came preinstalled with Windows XP. In 2009, my son, unbeknownst to me, installed Ubuntu on it and subsequently upgraded grub to grub 2 (I think). The bottom line is that I cannot boot Windows XP on it. On power up it shows me the following options:
1. Chainload Windows XP
2. Ubuntu ....
3. Ubuntu ....
4. Memory test ...
5. Memory test ...
Using windows XP. Used dual boot. It got stuck at startup. Got error message 255 memory for 256mb required. I went ahead anyway. Using a gateway with 256 memory. Do I need to install more memory for the one missing mb? Is there a fix for this?
I had Windows 8 on my laptop, and I thought Ubuntu was pretty cool, so I
attempted to dual-boot Windows 8 and Ubuntu. I used a video on YouTube:
