Re: .vhd file from my Windows 7 gives bluescreen in VirtualB

Well enabling the cpu virtualization technology in my bios did not help. The same thing happened this time. I'm going to try and revert to Ubuntu 12.04 cinnamon remix and see if it works on there. :-(

Re: Changing from grub to windows loader

Will this same method work to remove the grub boot loader even if i'm not dual booting with windows? I JUST installed mint a couple days ago and I tried using vmware workstation 9 for linux and it made my entire system puke, couldn't recover it - so I reinstalled mint, but now every time I boot, the...

Re: .vhd file from my Windows 7 gives bluescreen in VirtualB

Was poking around my bios last night and apparently the intel cpu virtualization technology was not enabled by default. I enabled it so I will try and bring up my VM again tonight to see if that was the cause for the malfunction.

Re: .vhd file from my Windows 7 gives bluescreen in VirtualB

Welp.....just tried using vmware workstation 9 and it killed my entire Mint install. I can't get it to boot properly now. When I started up my windows virtual machine, it threw a black screen with gibberish hex codes and "vmhostd tainted". Reinstalling......

Re: Transmission: where and what

The files you download go to a default directory, usually its the "downloads" folder. But you can change that so its some random folder away from your other regular downloads. And no, just because you have your other stuff in that downloads folder, no one can see or take the contents of th...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

I must say that coming from a Windows background, mainly XP, server2k3, and 7, using linux at all seemed like a tough sell when I was younger. But now that I've had the opportunity to use a few different operating systems outside of windows and osx, I am more comfortable using linux all-around and f...

Re: Transmission: where and what

The short of it is this: The way torrents work is once you're done downloading a file, you then become a seeder of that same file, meaning that your machine becomes another source that new downloaders can use to download the file faster. With torrents, the more people there are seeding, the faster y...

Re: missing sensors?

I've never used xsensor before, just lm-sensors with Conky. Can you post your command line output when you give the command:

Code: Select all

Re: Just switched from Ubuntu to Mint

Wow thanks for the warm welcome and tips! Yes this machine boots Mint in under 10 seconds, I honestly don't know what we were all doing before SSD's. :-) So far I've got Conky up and running and almost tweaked to my liking and I just posted in the Software section for some assistance with virtualbox...

.vhd file from my Windows 7 gives bluescreen in VirtualBox

Hello, I recently installed mint 14 nadia on my new rig and I wanted to still be able to use my old windows installation from another machine on this new computer using virtualbox. I have created a .vhd file from my Windows 7 32-bit machine, and have attempted to load it in virtualbox and it looked ...

Re: [Solved] Linux video converters?

Try Handbrake. I loved this program when I was using Windows full-time. What I used to do was take a DVD and re-author it inside of DVD Shrink so that it would only rip the actual movie file, none of the extras like menus and special features or previews. Once DVD Shrink gave me that output file (I ...

Just switched from Ubuntu to Mint

Hello, I just built myself a new desktop computer and decided to give Linux Mint a try as my main OS. I've used Ubuntu for quite awhile on my little netbook and I've enjoyed it but I'm looking for a change. I plan on trying to run my old Windows 7 installation in virtualbox or an equivalent program....
