BlueProtomanI've got a bit of a problem...last night I got a new laptop.  It came with Windows 7, so I used UNetBootin and my dad's flash drive to install Ubuntu.  But it ran too late into the night, so I let it copy to the flash drive as I sleep.  But now, Windows 7 is mysteriously gone.  Trying UNetBootin again copies Ubuntu directly to the flash drive successfully...but I can't install it onto my laptop!  It gives me the "select an op13:56
BlueProtomanI really need to get this laptop up and running, this weekend is the only spare time I have for a while!13:57
BlueProtomanThe Powers That Be don't seem to want me to use Linux...14:06
Abhijitwindows 7 is in your internal hdd and you used unetbootin for pen drive14:08
Abhijithow this can cause any damage to windows?14:08
AbhijitBlueProtoman, ??14:09
BlueProtomanI have no idea.  More likely, it involved my battery (I left it unplugged thinking it would finish installing to the flash drive).14:09
Abhijiti dont know what caused the windows to vanish but now as you say its gone you first install windows and then install ubuntu14:10
BlueProtomanYes, but I've refreshed Windows now.14:13
Abhijitso there is windows now?14:13
BlueProtomanI'm going through the First Boot again.14:13
Abhijitthen just make another partition and install ubuntu there14:14
Sidewinder1It's not really a problem but I was wondering, why, occasionally when I mount external esata/usb hard drives (through Places-->Mount 1TB Filesystem) two instances of Nautilus opens with the associated directory structures. It only happens about 30% of the time and seems to be totally random. (10.04 i386 desktop)17:10
Sidewinder1Crosspost, I know, but I waited, unsuccessfully for about a half hour prior to asking here.17:11
