Dual-boot Windows and Linux, but Linux has calendar, TB 31.0
I'm using Linux Mint and Windows 7 dual-boot. I have TB 31.0 installed on each operating system. TB Linux has a capacity of calendar; in Windows, there is nothing (by nothing, I mean no calendars - I can't see their properties, for example, access somehow).
I should add that Windows and Linux TB programs share the same profile folder (located on a separate partition), therefore, all of the same modules, passwords, etc.
The error console records the following:
Error: Components.classes['@ [cid] is undefined
Source file: resource://calendar/modules/calUtils.jsm-> file:///P:/PortableApps/ThunderbirdPortable/Data/profile/extensions/%7Be2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103%7D/calendar-js/calUtils.js
There are a variety of flow on the errors related to this.
My apologies for posting this in this way; I intend to submit this via the crashreporter, but I can't get the program crash with this error earlier.
An answer to my own question: it turns out that, while sharing a profile works quite well for most of the cases, with lightning, he does not, like the extension has different versions of Linux and Windows. The problem is solved very simply: by not using is not the same profile for each version.
Glad to see that no one takes on this one (except me, of course).

I have a disc of hard 37.2 GB currently have a partition for Windows XP SP3 (that I just installed) and 31 MB of unallocated space. I know how to shrink a volume, but when I right click on my Windows XP partition, I not give me the option to reduce it. I would like to reduce this volume so that I can reserve half of the hard drive to install Linux. Any suggestions?
You can not reduce the volume of windows XP. I would use the linux installation disc to partition the drive down. Make sure that you have a backup before you start.
I am a newbie in Windows 8, linux, Partition...
I want to use my new laptop with windows 8 pre-installed on the following:
Create a Dual Boot Windows 8 / Ubuntu
Create on my drive C (single disk on my laptop):
* a partition for the system
* one for Windows 8
* one for data and
least for Ubuntu OS
My goal is:
-to install VmWare on Windows 8 and run Splat Checkpoint with virtual machines to make the FCTC laboratories.
to install GNS3 on Ubuntu for CCNP Labs but with GNS3 to access the files in the data partition
I have a Toshiba Satellite with 750 GB and 8 GB of RAM.
According to you, what is the best size for my scores?
Is there a better way to partition my C drive on my goal?
I don't know if this is the right section, sorry for that. Feel free to move this thread in the appropriate section *.
I think the size of partitions depends of the you want to use and install other software.
So if you have a lot of software which runs under the Windows System I recommend to choose a larger size to win 8 partition.
However, given that you have a 750 GB HARD drive, you could take 200GB for Win 8, 100 GB to Linux and the rest of the HARD drive size, that you can use for data.
By the way: I found Nice YouTube video how to create a dual boot using 8 Win and Linux http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_Yd2jK-7Jg
Will there be a completely safe way for a dual-boot Windows 8.1 and Linux on a Pavilion 17-e157eo?
I searched the dualboot topics, but solutions do not seem to apply in this case. Secure boot has been disabled. Quick start has been disabled. In this PC disk partitions are not dynamic but simple.
Starting from a Live Linux DVD results in a blank screen even if the DVD player is clearly read something. Is the problem due to the fact that this PC has the INTEL 4600 graphics chip and an AMD Radeon 8670 M?
A better solution would be to use VMware or VirtualBox, set up a Linux guest operating system, the host system is of course Windows 8.1?
No problem, glad I could help. If you could mark one of my posts with an acceptable Solution and congratulations if this information was useful, it would be much appreciated and it would be useful to other institutions. Thank you and have a great day!
HP envy 6 sleekbook 6z 1100
I already turn off secure in the BIOS startup
But I can not install ubuntu 13.04
The installation was smooth and good
But after the reboot, there is no start menu doesn't appear for me to choose what operating system I want to start
I wonder if something blocked HP... or should I turn on the legacy support in the BIOS? But ubuntu 13.04 should support EFL BIOS
I need Ubuntu to work!
The following tutorials will help:
Hello. Suddenly, my USB mouse doesn't work on my satellite pro A200-1F9 laptop. I had this same problem on my Linux (Ubuntu Feisty) for the last week or two, but today was the first time that the mouse no longer works in Windows. Ideas for what's gone wrong? (If I boot Linux with the attached mouse, I get an error message when loading upward.) The mouse does not work it is logged at startup or I plug it later).
Under Windows and Linux, the laptop still recognizes my external HD which also has a USB connection...
In my opinion, you should test the USB feature. If you are 100% sure that the USB ports are working well check your mouse or try to use the other.
Laptop mouse pad still works?
I had the upgrade of WIndows 8 and updated my current PC to WIndows 8 (it was under XP). Now, I find a lot of my games too does not Windows 8 I go account that my XP license is now gone because it has been used for windows 8 upgrade, but I have a second license XP on another older PC that I withdrew. Can I install a second copy of XP on another partition of my computer upgrade Windows 8? As we will install second OS that would generate the dual boot XP splash screen. I would try this myself, but I don't want to try to install XP and find that I lose access to my Windows 8 install because he doesn't know what to do with Windows 8. Any help would be appreciated.
What follows refers to Windows 7, but the same principles apply to Windows 8:
The following instructions will show how dual boot Windows 7 and XP on your machine instead of replacing one with the other.
It is important that you have a reinstall or repair disk in case you should reinstall or repair your installation of WIndows 8.
The following article will show you how to create a repair disk (Windows 7, the same instructions for Windows 8 references):
Drivers for Windows XP:
You first need to know if your computer is compatible with Windows XP. Much more modern computers are gradually support for Windows XP.
Open a command run (press Windows + R key) on your keyboard. Then type diskmgmt.msc, and then press enter on your keyboard.
Once the disk management is open, select the C:\ or where Windows 8 is installed.
Right click and click on the retractable menu.
Please wait while Windows 8 checks the available space on the disc.
Enter the amount you want to assign.
The disk management window should display the unallocated disk space.
Install Windows XP
In order to install Windows XP on the partition you created, you will need to boot into your BIOS, then set it to IDE HDD mode.
After you set the IDE HDD mode, you can continue to install Windows XP on the partition you created;
Insert your Windows XP CD, and then restart your computer.
When you are prompted to boot from the CD, do so. To do this, press any key on the keyboard.
Windows XP will go into its configuration process.
Once you arrive at the welcome configuration, press enter on your keyboard to start the installation process
Press F8 on your keyboard to accept the license agreement
Select Format the partition using the NTFS file system
Press F on your keyboard to start the formatting.
Installation files will now be copied to your hard drive
Your system will be rebooted, the installation of Windows XP will continue
After Windows XP installs successfully, you will not be able to boot in Windows 8, here comes the recovery for Windows 8 disc.
Boot from the DVD Windows 8
(a) in the screen install now
(b) click on repair your computer
(c) click on Advanced Options
(d) click on troubleshoot
(e) click on startup repair
(f) follow the instructions on the screen
After you have repaired your installation Windows 8 and try to start it, you will notice that Windows 8 will not start.
Boot into the BIOS again and choose the SATA hard drive mode. You will now be able to start Windows 8 again.
After that, download EasyBCD and add a startup for Windows XP for Windows 8 boot manager entry;
EasyBCD by NeoSmart Technologies would be your answer, it provides a graphical front-end to the BCDEdit Command line that makes it easy for you to set the boot settings and change the entries start on the new Windowsboot Manager. http://NeoSmart.NET/DL.php?id=1
The next step is now make it possible for Windows 8 start in IDE mode.
Here are the instructions to do this:
Welcome to all, so let me explain, I installed Windows 8 with AHCI set from the Bios, but after that I wanted to use ide (becose it starts faster) and when I put Ide from Bios, windows 7 loading screan camed upp and BSOD (blue screen of death) with a 0x0000005B error code, I tried the regedit setting thing in the 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesMsahci' and then just pan the STARTING value 0 I have set it to 1 and it supposed to work, but it was a location, he always did the Bsod and I was so angry, I wanted to make it work... AND I DID IT!
Here's the pases:
(1) I assume that you have installed Windows Vista or Windows 8 with AHCI in the BIOS!
Download 2) my registry fix (to add keys to the ide to regeditor) simply apply the key
(3) now manually part regedit go to:
And thease three keys in the right pan, you will find a key named 'START' change all three (Msahci, iaStor, iaStorV) values from 0 to 1
Now, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_System_CurrentControlSet_Services_PciIde
, and then change the value of start on '0 '.
(4) now that you're allmost done, restart your laptop computer and go to Bios and set between AHCI and IDE! Save the settings in the Bios and restart
(5) Windows will be loading and VOILA! NO BSOD! , windows Vista / seven will install new Ide drivers and that you will see in the windows Device Manager you have more AHCI drivers, you have the Ide drivers!
(6), he is invited to restart another, just restart and you will be happy
Hey guys!My boss recently bought a desktop computer of Windows 8 for the work. Unfortunately, our program of irrigation works on Windows XP and that they do not plan to update the systems more recent. I have tried everything by running it on Virtual Box to run the program in compatibility mode, and I get errors more than anything else. I thought the best way would be just to get a license of Windows XP and the dual-boot, to not voiding the warranty.And here I am... What do I do now?Thank youDanny
Most recent PC running Windows 8 have EUFI the BIOS. To ensure fast works with BIOS EUFI inherited from start start is disabled by default. You can dualboot activating inherited from startup in the BIOS "but" the PC manufacturer dislikes do you that and if it's something as a manufacturer of my laptop, Samsung, you will be immediately void your warranty.
First thing I would contact the PC manufacturer to see if the dual boot will actually void your warranty. If so then you and only you take the risk that the manufacturer will not just want to know. If the warranty is not affected then the manufacturer can tell you how to activate the legacy BIOS.
Once the legacy Bios is enabled, you will need to create a new partition that will contain the Windows XP operating system. You also need to know if the manufacturer has drivers relevant to the XP operating system so that everything will work properly. If no driver is available, then you will have problems with the XP installation.
Installation of Windows XP is no different to the installation of any version of Windows. Just remember that XP must be installed on the partition that you recently created. If you don't it will install on the C: drive and too write your Windows 8.
The next major hurdle is to get the two to work. Because Windows 8 is already installed, you have a problem with the start menu. Plan technical XP must be installed first, then Windows 8 - obviously this sis something you can't do. Because XP is based on a file boot.ini and Windows 7/8 rest of the GPedit file, you will not be able to immediately run Windows 8. When you restart you will simply boot directly to Windows XP. To change the start option, I suggest that you take a look at this link: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1680664/dual-boot-windows.html#. In particular pay attention to this post by WinOutreach2 (May 24, 2013).
Personally, I have a feeling you might have problems with your warranty and also the difficulties to get XP drivers for your hardware, so you can easily solve your problem in the way that you want.

Tile: CMT Compaq dc7100 Dual Boot, Windows 7 Pro and XP Pro
Hello everyone. My computer is adjustable having the dual boot with Windows 7 Pro on disk 0 (320 GB SATA Seagate Barracuda 7200.11) and XP Pro disk 1 (40 GB SATA Samsung SP0411C). As the two systems are available at the start but most all the time Windows 7 Pro would use. The computer is Compaq 7100, WCL PP255US, 3.2 GHZ Intel Pentium 4, 3 GB of ram, Council ch h 0968, bios HP 78 1 v01.05 16/06/2004, chip Intel 915 G Express. According to the website of Seagate Barracuda 320 GB with (quote), ' he not there no master/slave because every player relationship is considered to be a master in a relationship from point to point.» If two drives are connected to a Serial ATA host adapter, the host operating system considers that the two devices as if they were the two "masters" on two ports separated. Both drives behave as if they were device 0 (master) devices. On the drive Samsung (SP0411C) I put a jumper for master, it is connected to the motherboard instead of disk 1. Used rider illustrated for Samsung SP0411N since I did not see the SP0411C listed. When selecting information for Samsung Seagate site sometimes showed data for their readers. This is perhaps due to the recent acquisition of Samsung or maybe my mistake. Tried swapping around wiring of each drive but that didn't work of course. Looked at the settings in the BIOS but did not see a way to create the dual boot. Please let me know if you need more information. If you know how this can be done or have some suggestions, please let me hear it. As always, thank you very much for your comments.
Hello oscarmint, I checked the specifications of your system and it does not show the system supports two types of hard drives.
The system supports only Serial ATA (Sata) synchronous Maximum 150 MB/s transfer rate
You would need to make the jumper on the Seagate 320 GB Sata Drive pin, set at 150 MB/s.
You are right that the Seagate would not Cable Select or slave settings and it would be the master and only on cable.
If the 40 GB hard drive is a type of ATA (IDE), you'd better put as selection of cables (CS).
Hi all. I'm trying to install win7 on a XP machine for a dual-boot. Advisor says upgrade I'm good to go. I have an E-Machine with a single processor core AMD with 2 GB of memory. New active partition is 60 GB. About 30% of the file extension that the screen turns into multicoloured blocks & installation breaks down. Tried to copy the cd to a flash drive in case the disc was bad. Arrived at about 40%, but the result was the same. Custom installation uses to keep active XP on HD. Any suggestions? TYVM. Brad

Do not always rely on the Upgrade Advisor.
'the screen turns to the multi-colored blocks. '
Which seems to graphics card hardware/drivers problem
Go to your computer / computer laptop manufacturer Web site and see if Windows 7 drivers are available for your make and model computer / laptop.
If this is not available, Windows 7 will not properly work for you.
Run the "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor" (as you did)
Check if your specifications are compatible for Windows 7:
"Windows 7 system requirements"
"Windows 7 Compatibility Center" for software and hardware:
Windows 7 upgrade paths:
«Installation and reinstallation of Windows 7»
And read the information on the dual-boot them.
"Installing dual Boot with Windows 7 and XP."
"How dual boot Windows XP and Windows 7 (XP installed first)."
See you soon.
I installed Windows 7 (from the hidden to the hardrive recovery section) on my new Tecra S11. I would like to know if I can use the Windows XP
recovery media provided by Toshiba to create a dual boot Windows 7/Windows XP rather than go back to XP?
As far as I know it of not possible to create a dual boot with XP and Windows 7 Toshiba Recovery disk. The problem is that the recovery disk erases the entire HARD disk, so there is no option to create a dual boot with another operating system.
If you want XP too you need to a normal XP installation disk Microsoft or you use virtualization of Windows 7 XP mode, if some n t applications run on Windows 7. ;)
