Re: on dual-boot, Windows decided not to boot

I am now able to at least boot into Linux from the grub menu, but when I try Windows, I get this: INTEL UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build083) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corp Realtek PCIe FE FAMILY Controller series v1.34 (10/07/13) CLIENT MAC ADDR: C4 54 44 E6 E0 2E GUIDE: 39CA3EF9-AF40-422D-B22B-46527977157F...

Re: conflicting advice on removing hiberfile

When booting from the stick, have you set the bios of the computer to boot from the stick 1st, or have you called the boot menu? I did have BIOS set to boot from the stick first. And I did point Rufus to the Windows ISO. This is What I get: Realtek PCIe Fe Family Controller series v1.34 (10/07/13) ...

Re: conflicting advice on removing hiberfile

Writing a Windows ISO from Linux seem to be a bit difficult. This is best done from Windows with e.g. Rufus. I downloaded Rufus 3.4.1430 on my other computer that has Windows 8.1, and made a bootable USB stick, but my dual-boot computer wouldn't boot with it. I may have not done something correctly...

Re: conflicting advice on removing hiberfile

It's easy to make one, if you have another working computer. I tried to make one and run that command, but only got "bad command or file name" I think something is wrong, because when I booted with the newly created Windows install thumb drive, all I got was "using US-English keyboard with US-Engli...

Re: conflicting advice on removing hiberfile

Have you tried catweazel's solution? I ran catweazel's command and checked the disks after, and it showed sda4 mounted at /mnt. Then I did a controlled shutdown using the boot thumb drive and removed the boot disk as instructed. Then I rebooted without the boot disk and I got the lengthy message en...

Re: conflicting advice on removing hiberfile

OK I missed that. So really your problem is, you can't get into Windows. When you try to boot into Windows where does it fail? Do you get to the logon screen? Or is it crashing and rebooting before that, or just freezing somewhere? Is it a dual boot with Linux? This is a dual boot with LM 18.3 Sylv...

Re: conflicting advice on removing hiberfile

By default Windows 10 shuts down in semi-hibernated state. A flag is set, and therefore the partition is not writable, because this would change the situation and could cause corruption. The only way to properly shutdown Windows 10 seem to be to disable hibernate. Do so by going to the start menu, ...

conflicting advice on removing hiberfile

I've been battling with trying to boot to Windows with that partition hibernated and I've read conflicting fixes. The error tells me Windows is not mounted and cannot be mounted at /dev/sda4. Here is my output from fdisk -l: mint@mint ~ $ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/loop0: 1.7 GiB, 1842749440 bytes, 359...

Re: on dual-boot, Windows decided not to boot

I'm going in circles here! I went back into BIOS to check for the Windows bootloader, but didn't find one!? Somehow, when I tried to reboot, I got this: INTEL UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build083) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corp Realtek PCIe FE FAMILY Controller series v1.34 (10/07/13) CLIENT MAC ADDR: C4 54 ...

Re: on dual-boot, Windows decided not to boot

I really don't know what I'm doing, but just nosing around, I found this in my grub.cfg file. It's just a small portion almost at the end, but since it mentioned the Windows chainloader, I thought it might have some significance. buck@buck-Satellite-L55-B ~ $ cat /boot/grub/grub.cfg # # DO NOT EDIT ...

Could not try your suggestion, because, in the meantime, I did something else wrong. I turned off my machine using the power button, because I couldn't get out of where I was. Now I have this screen, black with white writing: BusyBox v1.22.1 (ubuntu 1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash) enter “he...
