[ubuntu] Windows doesn't load: Invalid EFI File Pathview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I installed Linux Mint, and in the process removed Windows 7 (the C:\ drive was corrupted). I had a backup, fortunately, so I reformatted the drive and restored the backup.

How do I configure Ubuntu properly for my HP compaq 6910p?view story

http://askubuntu.com – I've been trying to get the most out of my laptop's battery. I've seen this post: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/PowerManagement/PowerSavingTweaks. They describe what can be done if you have a Sandy Bridge Processor. I have an Intel Core 2 Duo T7500. And a GM965 chipset. What can I do to minimise the power usage of my laptop?
