Preferred Solution: GNU Grub vers 0.97 (BASH LINE)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: GNU Grub vers 0.97 (BASH LINE)

You were dual booting but now you are not and it sounds like you have lost your boot.ini file. Was the Linux on drive C:?
Do you have the Windows 2000 install software?

If you do then you might have to re-install Windows 2000 I do not think there is a way to rebuild the boot.ini file. I would suggest trying to install this hard drive into another computer as a slave drive and manually backup all of you data using a file manager. Then return it to this computer and do a full re-install of Windows 2000 on it.

Hi to everybody around here. First, first time poster and reader here. Read that this one is the best Windows forum out there. I'll explain this very detailed so I can help yo too: 1- Installed Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca through bootable USB without any problem. To do so, I shrunk the C: partititon and created a 100 GB partition for Linux Mint. 2- Tried Linux Mint but had some issues with the graphic drivers, so I decided to delete Linux Mint from my laptop and give Ubuntu a try since it's more compatible (IMO) with the hardware. 3- Rebooted, went into W8.1 using GRUB like always. Deleted Linux partition and integrated it again to C: 4- I thought I finished my work so turned off the PC and went to sleep. Next day after booting: GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1 Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions. grub> Ok. Have to point out that: 1- Since is a laptop it came with W8 preinstalled, so I have no installation DVD to fix the MBR (in case that's what I have to do). 2- I have a bootable USB with Ubuntu, but even though I set USB as first boot device in BIOS, it is not recognized by GRUB or something, idk. Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C55D-B5351 AMD A8-6410 APU @2.0 GHz quad-core AMD R5-230M graphics (integrated in APU). 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Also I'd love that someone explains to me the correct way to uninstall Linux in the case I have to do it again ...

Answer:BASH-like line GRUB error after deleting Linux partition.

It's hard to understand/read what you did.

1.Windows will not be bootable because GRUB boot loaded puts it's own MBR.
2.to fix this either run startup repair from Windows installation media or install new Linux which wll hopefully recognize Windows partition during partitioning part, (while initiating installation)
3.In worst case scenario you'll have to learn how to use GRUB or manually put Windows MBR or reinstall Windows.

Hi I'm not sure if I posted this in the right forum for this question but im going to ask anyway.

I am new at the whole bash scripting thing, but long story short i was wondering if there was a way to keep the CMD window open while it is doing its command, what I am trying to ask is if there is a script that I could insert that would keep the window from being able to be closed by the user. if that makes sense.

Answer:Bash Scripting for holding command line open

I don't know of anything like this. No matter what you do, the user can always click on the X to close the Command Prompt window.

Hi I am looking at Grub4dos since my recent foray into all things bootloaders. I am gaining a little footing with what I can and can't do (practically!) Although it was definitely trickier than I thought (or I just don't have the same time like I used to... ) Anyhow, I am looking at Grub because it sounds easier to learn the Grub2, and all my systems are pre EFI bios setups. I am looking for a 'Hoyle' maintainable setup. Therefore I decided to "initially" install W7 on C: and XP on D: (both on primary partitions)

But... also I have an existing XP image that was originally installed on C: Now I read somewhere, someone had a setup that would boot into a Master boot loader, presumably Grub, and then select one of two OSs and assign it C: and run it. and the other would become D: while leaving E,F,G, etc intact. That would really be a sweet setup for me because I could then use my existing XP image still since it would still think it is on C while running...

So my question is before I dive headlong into Grub. I know it would be the ideal bootloader for multi (pre EFI bios) But can it assign letters to partitions? so as to switch C and D like that while leaving other partitions assigns as they are? Just looking for a little confirmation and any tips. Here goes nothin'...

Answer:Dual Boot W7/XP using Grub - Can grub assign letters to partitions?

Why would you need to use Grub?

Answer:Is it possible to use BASH on Windows?

Fabyfakid,

BASH is an interpreter between the user and the kernel. Now windows kernel is not the same as linux kernel. Its Different.And interpretation of the commands in windows and linux are not any close to each other.

Thou you can find an emulator for BASH that works in windows[A DOS program], you cannot really BASH around in windows.

Yea I tried that emulator ,you can only execute basic commands, some 20 to 30 odd bash commands can be executed.

Answer:BASH for Window 10 - Will you?

"Will you?" - Have been since April 2016 on my laptop (Insider Builds), and since August 2016 on my mainstream machine (it came with Anniversary Update). Since the Creators Update you have interops (interoperability) so you can do this in bashCode: [Select]/mnt/c/Windows/System32/cmd.exe /c dir You can make the /mnt/c/Windows/System32/cmd.exe part into something shorter if you wish (having .bashrc on Windows! W00T!)and in Windows command prompt you can do thisCode: [Select]bash -c "ls -l"These are just simple examples, of course. In each shell you can run the other shell's scripts and binaries... What's not to like? I do find a lot of Linux command line stuff more intuitive and more rewarding to master, and (I feel like I am admitting something dirty here) I have never much liked Powershell. Yes, I know there has always been Cygwin, but I don't like that much either. I have a Linux box running Debian 8 Jessie and using WSL to provide an ssh terminal is very handy, also to my NAS running ARM Linux. I use Nano for my editor. All is good.

I installed build 14328 and added bash. Love bash! However, on my installation apt-get is missing:
bash: apt-get: command not found
I haven't seen other people having this issue, but I'm not sure what to do. This morning I updated to the newest build, 14332, but that didn't help.
I tried uninstalling bash by going into Windows features and unchecking the Ubuntu on Windows checkbox, but while that did have me reboot, it didn't actually remove bash, and it didn't make apt-get appear. When I went back to Windows features, the checkbox was still unchecked. I checked it again, and it had me reboot again, but apt-get still did not appear.

This question pertains to Mac OS X, but it's more of a UNIX thing than a Mac thing so I figured I'd post it here...

I was screwing around and ended up replacing /bin/bash with a useless program. (yes I am stupid, I know.) Now, when I go to the terminal, it runs my useless program instead of the shell. Is there a way to change my default shell (to csh/ksh/any other shell) without having to access bash? or is there a way to fix bash easily without using the shell?

any ideas appreciated....THANKS!

EDIT: I used the OSX terminal's "new command" option to delete my fake "bash" then copy ksh to the name bash, and that solved it. now I just need to figure out how to put bash back on!

So, this is a strange problem I'm facing these days. My OS is extremely stable except when I try to get Git to work. I don't remember exactly when this problem started but I did have git for windows installed since quite a while and I think this has been a recent occurrence (last 2-3 months)

What I have tried:
Uninstalled and reinstalled Git For Windows
Tried their beta releases as well as latest stable release
Installed Git on another drive
Tried using GitHub for windows as an alternative (Same result)
What I know is it can't be a hardware issue (except my hdd) since I have another OS installed on my secondary 160gb hard drive and git for windows works fine on it.
Lastly, sometimes the screen just freezes instead of giving a BSOD
I searched on google but couldn't find someone else facing this problem.
I have attached the debug files using the .bat file.

Any help is appreciated!

Answer:BSOD when Git Bash is started

It appears to be a network related BSOD, and Internet Download Manager (I am surprised to see it as a contributing element to a BSOD) is involved in it.

Hi all,

I have installed git before, so as a side effect, mingw is also installed. Currently, if I type bash in cmd, I got in bash provided by mingw.
Now I want to activate Linux subsystem on windows 10. The question is, can I set the default or configure what the bash command in cmd should do (either active Linux subsystem or get into mingw).

Bests, bbbhh

Answer:Choosing default for bash in cmd

Hello,

On the Windows command line, if you know you have two commands with the same name available for use on your system, the one listed first in the Path environment variable will be used. However, if it exists, the one residing in the current directory will take precedence.

Enabling the Windows Subsystem for Linux places a bash.exe binary in C:\Windows\System32. This will be the bash instance used if an executable named ?bash? doesn?t exist in any of the paths listed before C:\Windows\System32 in the Path. But if your command prompt is open at C:\Windows\System32, C:\Windows\System32\bash.exe will be used regardless of bash-es in the Path.

You can view the Path variable on the command prompt by echo-ing it.

Code:
C:\Users\Pyprohly>echo %path%
C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Parallels Tools\Applications;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client\;C:\Program Files\Intel\iCLS Client\;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\WINDOWS\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\dotnet\;C:\Users\Pyprohly\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps

Every so often, BASH randomly seems to open AptPackageIndexUpdate, then seems to stay open as it continues to do things, whatever they might be, and uses a considerable proportion of CPU time:



It goes on doing something for ages, possibly forever, without any indication of what is happening in the console after "Reading package lists... Done". Is it a bug?

Obviously this can affect foreground processes, and may be inconvenient, dropping frames when trying to watch a video stream etc.

TaskManager seems ineffectual in stopping the BASH process tree, in fact the console window seems to stay open whatever is done to try to close it.

What can be done to give more control over this behaviour, short of uninstalling BASH?

I have been playing around with an industrial Linux-powered scanner, and was making okay progress under XP.

This was made easier as I just ran some of the bash scripts through win-bash.

Since moving to Windows 7 of course this no longer works, even if I disable UAC completely.

I can only guess that the reason is that win-bash no longer works with Windows 7.

My question is will powershell fill the gap?

i.e. if this is my win-bash script what would the powershell equivalent look like, or am I barking up the wrong tree?

echo !TC | C:/win-bash/nc 192.172.1.6 80 > ScanFile.dta

p.s. nc = netcat and I know I need an alternative sooner rather than later

Very many thanks in advance

Joe.

Answer:Can powershell replace win-bash?

Honestly i'm not sure if it will, have you tried using cygwin-bash instead?

Hey guys, I have a hosted Linux server (Ubuntu 9.04) and I've been having a little problem with keeping up with maintenance and update (Team Fortress 2 Dedicated Server) sO started making a script however I'm a little stuck after reading up on things.

I originally planned on making a script that would run on start up, stay in memory and then when it got to a specified time it would do something like this:

Code:

# Shut down the TF2 server
kill %1

# Change to the needed directory for the next command
cd /home/games/srcds

# Tell steam to update the server files (if needed)
./steam -command update -game "tf2" -dir .

# Change to the needed folder for the next command
cd orangebox

# Start server
./srcds_run -console -game "tf" -port 27015 +ip 123.123.123.123 +map cp_well +maxplayers 24

Now there are a number of things with e script that don't work.

kill %1 needs to be ran with sudo permissions (password prompt)
The update command for the server also needs to be executed with sudo permissions.
I could run the script as root however I need it to be the "games" user that is running the server.
I need to set it to run at a specified time.
I don't want to be running anything with NOPASSWD.

I've looked into doing it via cron (which I want to happen) but I'm not 100% on the best way to about doing it so that's why I'm asking you guys

what they are getting into before changing to other operating systems and I can't fine any

What I want to do is basically login to a remote SFTP and transfer files to it every few hours. I can do all of this in the shell, like I've been doing for the past week, but now I want to automate it so I don't have to keep logging into the box to transfer the files to another box.

Basically I do this:
sftp [email protected]
[enter password]
put -P /home/user/*.kfm /

Then it transfers all the files to the remote SFTP server. Not sure how I would write this into a bash script and also I don't want it to copy files that already exist unless they're different.

Any help?

Now, this thing worked. I know it did, because I later downloaded the files with Firefox browser.

Hi, I'm running WinXP Pro SP2 (fully updated) and trying to create either a manually run command line tool, or a bash script for later use. The objective is to go through my root music folder and copy all of the zunealbumart.jpg and / or zunecustomalbumart.jpg files and paste them into the same directory now named folder.jpg

So far I have gotten this command to get close, but it comes back telling me that "The system cannot find the file specified." Any ideas?
Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\insanity.FIDO\Desktop\Temp Music>for /R %d in ("c:\Documents and Settings\insanity.FIDO\Desktop\Temp Music\") do copy %dz*.jpg %d\folder.jpg
This is in a test directory, but I'll eventually be running it on an external hard drive in a similar directory tree.

Cheers!
Edit - oh, and I got that idea mostly from here: http://forums.xkcd.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=14965

I have two if statements in a bash script doing the exact same thing, just grepping for a different port. They are completely identical. One works, the other doesn't. 1234 works, 8080 doesn't. I just don't get it.

Could somebody show me what a "proper" statement would be? I'm looking for ssh connections on 8080 and 1234.

I just did a clean install of 64-bit Win 10 Preview Build 14951 from an install.esd converted to an iso image. I go to Turn Windows features on or off and check the box marked Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta). When my system reboots, an error message flashes by so fast, I can't read it and Bash isn't installed. I have Developer mode turned on and am an administrator on this computer. FSC /scannow and DISM show no errors at all. I really don't want to have to reinstall Windows.
What else can I do?

TIA

I just installed this yesterday onto my XP OS and I'm having trouble importing big movie files. I know I could import big files with the older version and on skool computers. I cannot even impost something like 30MB big. The biggest I've imported was around 18MB.

when I do try to import these files I get the message where it asks to send an error report and it closes the program.

Can somebody please help?

Thanx
 

Answer:Windows Movie maker vers.2.0

Hiya

Are you still having this problem? If so, have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the software?

There is a newer version here:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/updates/moviemaker2.mspx

But, if you want to stay with version 2, that's fine

Also, lets see what you have running behind the scenes:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Regards

I tried to download the cumulative update for Win 10 vers 1511 with mixed results - none of them successful.
The first time, after 2 hours, nothing had happened - I just had the Windows Update window but no indication anything was happening. The system was completely locked up - ctl-alt-del didn't work. So I forced power down then restarted.
When I tried the update again, after several minutes of the download progress indicator showing 0%, I got
"There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help:
? Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3163018) - Error 0x800700ea"
I was invited to retry but the same message appeared.
Here's my update history showing the many failures.

Hello. I have a pretty old PC that I custom built back in 2002. It's basic guts are an AMD athlon processor, 1.15Ghz, 512 MB RAM running Windows XP 2002 home edition with Service Pack 2.

I encountered a severe problem today after downloading a program called Blender and a program called Python (programs recommended to me for allowing to import one type of 3D programming model into another 3d modeling program.

My computer had suddenly shut down for no reason at all and began to restart. At the onset of the restart, once the desktop had loaded on my screen I got a Windows message saying that (paraphrased)

"Windows has encountered a problem and will shut down within (a small timer counting down from 60 seconds). If you are in the middle of something please save all programs.

By the time the counter reached about 25 seconds my computer automatically shut down and restarted. I allowed this to go on for about 5 cycles before I opened Windows in safe mode and tried to remove the programs that I had downloaded.

I went into Add/Remove programs and removed Blender but I could not remove Python. I would get an error message saying (paraphrase)

"Windows is unable to remove program because Windows installer is not active"

I removed what I could and then went into the disk cleanup and deleted all of my temporary files as well as compressed unused files.I then tried to defrag my computer but it would not let me saying that

I am trying to decide which dual boot combo would be best for
me. I am looking at Win XP pro & 98 combo or Win XP pro & Win 2000 combo on my Athlon 1000meghertz machine. I use MS
office & visual Studio 6 programs. Planning on using Visual
studio net but I think XP can handle that. I don't do any
gaming. I might pick up some old programs from a yard
sale and try them on rare occasion. I do pick up old yard
sale HP printers and use them until the ink cart run out.
I do use access and excel a lot. I do use ebay turbolister.
On rare occasions, I might pick up an old versons of office or something at a yard sale and look at that. Can anyone compare the above dual boot combos and let me know which they think is more pratical.
thank you,
doug,

Answer:Win XP pro & 98 Vers Win XP pro & Win 2000 dual boot

I have done some searching, but am still confused.
I still need to do my system Image in case I need to restore windows.
I tried doing a back up, but was told I did not have enough space on my external hard drive.
But I see back up and system image are different.
I just want to image my system to where I have it now so I can restore.
I am not worried about back up, my music and movies, I am not worried about.
I have backed up the ones I am worried about .

Thing is I have about 175 Gig. movies and music in the Downloads folder.
If I go to do a System Image, will it try to copy all the movies and music from Downloads.
Or is there a way to exclude the downloads folder from my system Image?

Thanks,
Tony

Answer:Back up Vers. System Image

Hello Tony,

System Image = This includes the Windows operating system and everything on any system drives by default, and cannot be unselected. You can also include any other complete drive you select as well. When restored, it restores the selected drives completely back to how they were when the image was created. All data, partitions, file system, etc..... Folders cannot be excluded from an image. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

System Image Recovery
Windows Backup - This only includes the files in whatever folders you select. You have the option to also have a backup automatically created on a schedule, and be able to have an optional separate "system image" created along with the backup. A backup will not restore the drive to how it was though. Only the selected folders and files in them. Backup User and System Files

Restore Backup User and System Files

Hope this helps some,
Shawn

I am having a problem with a site that I am trying to view the video on and get only the Audio???I have a Toshiba notebook M50-MX5 windows xpsp2 and it is 2 years old.I have tried other streaming news networks and they are ok??I also have Windows media player on my notebook and don't really understand about "streaming" except that my news networks are working.I don't know if the above "Adobe" programs that are in my "Add/Remove" section of my Control Panel are the whole program or not????The site that I am trying to watch uses Adobe Flash Player specifically, thus I am asking this question.I am not literate in this program, obviously and need help.The site that I am trying to watch is:My WebpageI would appreciate comments.I googled and found a site with the uninstaller and used that and did a reboot and installed fresh and the only program that was removed was the Adobe Flash Player, and Adobe Activex. And then only 1 program was installed when I did a fresh install and that was the Adobe Flash Player Activex 9.0.45.0 and so I am wondering if I am now missing a component to make this work???Also I don't understand the association between Adobe Shockwave Player vers. 10.1.4.20; as this program was not removed when I did the Uninstall it remained.Could it be corrupt???I apologize for these questions however I have never had a problem viewing this site and listening to this site.I would appreciate all replies, thankyou.

Answer:Adobe Shockwave Player Vers. 10.1.4.20?

Fixed problem, I got rid of Adobe Flash Player and the Activex and my Windows Media Player is functioning at my News sites and giving me both audio and video.
So this post can be removed. i thought that I should post my solution in the event that it may help other members.
Thankyou.
