About dual boot on separate drives.

About dual boot on separate drives.:

I have w10 on SSD and installed pop_os on an HDD. But when I boot into the HDD I don’t get a grub menu giving me the option to choose between windows or linux… I just boot directly into linux. So now I’m stuck with hitting F11 to boot into windows when I want to game… I did a clean install on the HDD and installed the grub-customizer if you need to know. Did I miss something in the installation process?

systemd not recognizing Windows after pop!_OS install (i’m a dumbfuck with two boot drives how do i fix this):

i fucked up while overwriting my Ubuntu installation with a pop!_OS install and now systemd isn’t aware of my Windows partition

i have two boot partitions, i accidentally set up the second during the pop install. i think this is the root of the problem

there’s no efi info for windows in my boot/efi

i have made a major mistake and am wondering if anybody knows how i can unfuck myself

thank you

Alot of firsts today:

Had a lot of firsts today. First time backing up my hard drive. First time downloading and running a virtual machine. First time downloading and exploring Kali Linux, or any Linux for that matter. Messing around with Python and a few ethical hacking courses on YouTube. Any suggestions/advice moving forward?

Removing a dead drive from an LVM

Removing a dead drive from an LVM:

I’ve got a machine running Linux Mint 18.1, which had a LVM spanning 3 1TB drives. One of them has died, and I’m just trying to figure out if it’s possible to remove this drive from the LVM and hopefully see what data is still on there. If so, how do I go about it?

There was no critical information, just rips of all our movies and music and of Islay like to avoid reripping or transferring from backup, but I do have a backup from about a year ago that has 80% of what the LVM contained.

Why do 5 terminal windows appear everytime during my startup?:

This only happens after a restart/shutdown, if I log off and back on it doesn’t.

For some reason everytime I log in after a reboot/shutdown 5 terminal windows appear on my desktop right away. Most of them are my home dir but 1 opens in my Downloads and the other in Desktop. A couple weeks ago I added Terminal to the “Session and Startup” application so a prompt would appear instantly everytime I logged in. Today for some reason ive been getting 5, so I removed the initial “Terminal” previously added and created a new one thinking that may have been the issue, but it wasn’t.

My NVIDIA graphics card isn’t being used (for whatever reason). How do I troubleshoot this?:

I have two GPUs on my (System76) computer (running Pop!_OS, aka Ubuntu+perks). One is an Intel integrated graphics chip, and the other is is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. For some reason, when I run programs (specifically Steam games), they use my Intel chip (which is garbage).

How can I use my NVIDIA GPU instead? How can I figure out what the problem is?

Steam game crashes; error (ELFCLASS32) seems to say files aren’t there, despite verifying integrity of game files:

Game is Hearts of Iron IV on steam. After the latest update, it crashes on startup. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game with no luck. Verifying the integrity of the game files does not fix the problem.

The error is the following:

ERROR: ld.so: object ’/home/user/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/gameoverlayrenderer.so’ from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32): ignored

addr2line: ’/home/user/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Hearts’: No such file

Followed by:

shadercachemanager/shadercachemanager.cpp (307) : Assertion Failed: nHitCount <= 1 shadercachemanager/shadercachemanager.cpp (307) : Assertion Failed: nHitCount <= 1

Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

I’m building my first computer and think of installing Linux OS. What should I know?:

I’m building my first computer and I’m thinking of installing Linux. One because is free and two because I’m sick of apple. I want this to be a gaming pc and I’ve heard that you can play steam games with the “ wine” program. But I don’t know how effective it is. Am I in over my head? Is there anything I should know or consider before installing Linux? Here is my list of parts of that helps: pc parts

Dual Boot problem

Dual Boot problem:

I have try thousand of times to install windows along side with ubuntu. When i am booting from my usb to install ububtu my laptop freezes. I have tried many tutorials online but nothing changed.

My laptop initially came with linux.

I use rufus for a bootable usb.

Can my laptop doesn’t support dual boot ?
