Hide Ubuntu Partition In Windows 8

Sep 6, 2013

I just recently installed Ubuntu 13.04 in my new msi laptop. My goal is to hide Windows 8 partition in ubuntu and vice versa.

In ubuntu, I disabled auto mount so it is working as desired.

In windows 8 disk manager, I cannot seem to find a way to hide the ubuntu partitions.

My goal is to keep windows and ubuntu partions (in windows drives) to see each other to protect the parition from accidental damage.

Is there a way to this in windows 8 home edition?

Setup Installation :: Wiped Windows Partition While Installing Ubuntu?

Apr 18, 2014

I have managed to wipe my Windows partition while installing the latest release of Ubuntu (v14.04). I've had my HDD split in two with both Windows 8 (updated to 8.1 Update) and Ubuntu and dual-booted between them for over a year.

During the Ubunut install it informed me that I had a previous version of Ubuntu and would I like to wipe the partition that it occupied and install cleanly. I chose that. It also offered a chance to use free space. Now, why I accepted that I don't know but the definition of free space seems to include any other partitions on the drive and didn't warn of this either!

The upshot is that I now have a 1TB drive with no Windows on it. I've lost all my email, pics etc etc.

I tried using my rescue DVD that I created from within Windows and at 29% I am asked to insert the second disc. I don't have a second disk. I had to force my laptop to power down in order to do anything. In order to get online I ended up installing Ubuntu again and it definitely shows no Windows partition.

I've already ordered a retail copy of Windows 8.1 and I'm hoping that I can install this with no issues on what is effectively a clean drive. Am I correct in that assumption? Is there anything else I can try that might rescue it?

I have a Dell Inspiron 17r SE that is out of warranty so no support from Dell.

Setup Installation :: How To Remove Ubuntu Without Recovery Partition

Jun 25, 2014

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 a few weeks ago and I was happy about it, but I need to sell this PC and I need to install Windows in it. The problem here is that I erased the recovery partition by accident and I can't install Windows with a CD because my computer doesn't have a disk case, the model of my PC is Lenovo Yoga 11s.

I tried to make a booteable Windows 7 USB with Unetbootin, but the BIOS doesn't let me boot from the USB slot. My BIOS configuration was in Legacy Support and my USB was the priority to boot. My USB was formatted in NTFS. When I open the boot menu it take me to the Grub of Ubuntu.

I don't know what else to do... I just need to install Windows, it doesn't matter if is 7 or 8.

Setup Installation :: System Reserved Partition Gone After Installing Ubuntu

Mar 15, 2014

I have a custom PC I built and I was running 8.1 on it. I have to drives a 120gb ssd that had windows on it and I have a 1 TB that had the 350mb system reserved partition and 2 other partitions I had for data and a boatload of free space. I wanted to try and install Linux Ubuntu on the 1tb hard drive. I did a custom install on it because I didn't want it to delete my existing partitions so in the install I made 2 partitions for Ubuntu, after I installed it my 2 data partitions are gone and I don't know what happened with the 350mb system reserved partition.

On that disk now is the 2 Linux partitions and a 150mb partition that I can't tell what it is. But now I can't boot into windows, even when I go from bios. My question is in that system reserved partition is that where the bootmgr is? Because I did nothing with the ssd where windows is and I get a no operating system error when I try to boot off it. How I can fix that disk if the system reserved partition isn't on it.

Windows 8.1 - Consolidate Or Hide Taskbar Icons

May 20, 2014

In the lower right corner of my screen, there used to be 1 icon on the taskbar and if I clicked on it, a whole series of icons appeared above the taskbar. I have done something accidentally that puts all of the icons on the taskbar. There must be some command to consolidate taskbar icons or hide taskbar icons but Windows 8.1 has hidden them.

I'm using Windows 8.1 Enterprise RTM

At the login screen I see my user ID and a Guest user. Can I hide the guest user at login screen - I only want to see my user.

I DON'T want to boot in bypassing the sign on screen. (Note this is NOT the same as booting direct to desktop !!!).

This is new in Windows 8.1 RTM - I never had this in previous editions of windows.

(Note I really don't want to DISABLE the account - I just don't want to see it at login).

How To Hide Username In 8.1

Sep 3, 2014

I just got a hold of a laptop thats using 8.1. It acutally came with it, but I'm viewing that as a good thing, so I can get some experience with this OS. My questions is a simple one, is there any way to hid either your last name, or your username when logging into 8.1?

I'm not a big fan of my last name being displayed when I lock my computer, or log into it. I don't mind having on my microsoft account, I'd just rather it only show my first name.

Maintenance :: Notification Area - Show Icon / Hide?

Aug 9, 2014

I just installed mouse software on my 8.1 Pro laptop. The software starts every time I start my computer and shows an icon in the taskbar. There is one very annoying thing that it does, when I first login to my computer the notification icon for the mouse software pops up a window saying that it's running:

I opened Customize Notification Area to see if I could turn off notifications BUT keep the icon there (so I can right-click it and open the software).

I noticed there is no option to "Show Icon And Hide Notifications".

So the only way i can keep that annoying popup message from appearing every time I login is to hide everything. But then, as I said above, I won't be able to right click the icon and start the software.

Is there a way I can show icons but hide notifications?

I noticed when I was looking at the custom notification area window that there were entries for programs that I no longer have on my machine:

Is there a way to cleanup/remove these?

File Manager Show / Hide Files In Ribbon

Jun 12, 2013

About the ribbon, I like it... One thing that bothers me though is that, it may be too easy to get to an option... namely show/hide files under the view tab. Is there a way to edit the contents of the ribbon menu, so I can get rid of the show/hide files toggle on the ribbon? I know we can hide the ribbon or use third party program to disable the ribbon altogether. Is there a native way to just edit ribbons?

Maintenance :: Will Adding Partition Upset The Windows Partition Order

Aug 10, 2014

I would like to add a partition to a drive having the following partitions:

Number Partition Size 1 Windows RE 499 MB 2 EFI System 300 MB 3 MSR 128 MB 4 C: 216 GB 5 Windows RE 450 MB 6 Samsung Image 19 GB 7 Samsung Recovery 1 GB

This should be easy to do with MiniTool Partition Wizard. In essence, resize "C:", add the partition in the unallocated space, assign the drive letter "D" to the new partition, and format it to NTFS.

You will notice that the drive has two Windows RE partitions. This is because I updated to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 through the Microsoft Store.

8.1 - Unable To Hide Custom Made Libraries In Navigation Pane?

Dec 26, 2013

Since I upgraded to 8.1 (x64), I am unable to hide custom made libraries in the navigation pane. The default libraries can be hidden/shown. Does a custom library have a registry entry? I'm sure its visibility is controlled by a simple value.

No, I don't have "show all folders" selected.

Incidentally, this Libraries - Move above This PC in Windows 8.1 trick creates two lists of libraries in the navigation pane.

How To Create Ubuntu VM In Windows 8

Aug 23, 2014

I'm trying to create a virtual machine with Ubuntu in it.

I followed the instructions in this video step by step......and I have VM installed and running.

The problem comes when I try and go to the next step.

When I double click on the Ubuntu Icon in VM to start the Ubuntu install process, it should ask where the Ubuntu ISO file is, instead I get this message...

Here's my directory structure...

Virtual Box is installed in the 001 Virtual Box folder and the Ubuntu.vdi file is where you see it.

I've removed everything and repeated the process multiple times, but I always get the same result.

Setup Installation :: Installing Ubuntu In Windows 8?

Jan 27, 2013

I have just had limited success installing Ubuntu 12.10 onto an external diskon my new Samsung (series 3) Windows 8 laptop.

The secure boot and fast start up have been disabled.

The situation now is that Windows or Ubuntu will not boot up after pressing the power button, when doing this I get a dark screen with the following message:

error: no such device: 6dada016-95df-4ef5-a343-4a77e8afd396
grub rescue >_

I can now only boot up either program by hitting the F10 key directly afterpressing the power button, I then have to select one of the options in the boot options before themachine will boot (both systems boot up as normal when following this option).

if the external drive is not plugged into the USB port I want mylaptop to boot directly into Windows 8. Can this be achieved?. I would like to start Ubuntu through the settings, change PC settings option.

Setup Installation :: Using Dual OS Of Windows 8 And Ubuntu

Mar 23, 2014

I've had this Windows 8 computer for a while and I've decided that I want to dual-OS Ubuntu 13.10, but how to partition disks or backup system images or anything like that. I'm not even sure how to check what kind of ASUS my laptop is, but I'm fairly certain it is compatible with Ubuntu. If I can, I'd like to avoid using external hard-drives and CD's because I don't have easy access to either.
