Fix Windows MBR with a *buntu livecd

dimarts, juny 23rd, 2009

Something happen to a windows Master Boot Record (MBR) that you’re responsible for? Want a very quick, very easy way to restore it with nothing but your craft, native intelligence and a liveCD?

Be cautious here – you’re working with your disks in a very direct manner. If you don’t have everything backed up or are unsure of anything, you may want to wait until you have a standard Windows CD/DVD.

Boot into your Ubuntu LiveCD on the offending machine. Once Ubuntu starts up, go to System -> Administration -> Software Sources and enable (by checking it off) the Universal repository.

Now, open a terminal session (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and type the following:

sudo apt-get install ms-sys

ms-sys is a program used to write Microsoft compatible boot records.

Now you’ll need to figure out what partition is the one hosting your Windows operating system. Back in the command line, type:

sudo fdisk -l

That will list the available partitions. You’re looking for a partition that says something like

/dev/sda1 1 9327 74919096 83 NTFS

The two important bits are the ‘/dev/sda1‘ which is the partition itself and the ‘NTFS‘ which tells us it’s a Windows formatted partition. So your Windows partition exists on your drive sda and it’s partition 1. The MBR for drive sda (assuming you boot into windows using it’s native boot loader) is what you want to repair.

We want to fix the MBR on /dev/sda. To do so, type:

sudo ms-sys -m /dev/sda

You’ll want to change the ’sda’ bit if your results from ‘fdisk -l‘ are different. If for instance your windows install is on sdb or hda.

Once you do that, reboot the machine, removing the LiveCD from the drive and Windows should come back to you.

Sure, you could do this by inserting the correct Windows CD and booting into repair mode from it – but I find the Ubuntu way a bit faster and I’m more likely to have an Ubuntu LiveCD on me than a Windows CD.

In addition, remove string .\O from file /etc/issue to get rid of the annoying unknown_domain in the welcome message “This is host.unknown_domain …”.

Recordatori personal, que està molt de moda.

Hotmail to Gmail

dissabte, abril 25th, 2009

Hotmail és un asco, pero hi ha molta gent que no s’entera i continua enviant-me correus a eixa adreça. Encara no deixen redireccionar bé, però buscant he trobat finalment aquest article i he decidit copiar i enganxar per a recordar-lo i tenir-hi accés si la pàgina original l’esborra. Passe de traduir. Per a això teniu l’ubiquity (del qual hauré de parlar algun dia)

Not too long ago, the Windows Live Hotmail team decided to add POP3 support for users in countries such as United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Japan, Spain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. If you are in these lucky countries you can finally stay away from hotmail.com and use your favourite mail client or in this case through Gmail! If you’re not in one of these countries then I guess you’ll just have to wait or try some 3rd party alternatives.

Here are the general settings you need for your mail client when setting up Hotmail for pop3 in your mail client:

POP server: pop3.live.com (port 995)
POP SSL required? Yes
User name: Your Windows Live ID, for example yourname@hotmail.com
Password: The password you usually use to sign in to Hotmail or Windows Live
SMTP server: smtp.live.com (port 25)
Authentication required? Yes (this matches your POP username and password)
TLS/SSL required? Yes

Inside gmail to add a new mail account follow these instructions.

  1. Click on Settings -> Accounts -> Add another mail Account
  2. Type in your hotmail email address
  3. Fill out all the details and make sure you add the “@hotmail.com” or “@live.com” at the end of your username
  4. Make sure the second checkbox is also checked, the others are optional
  5. Change the port number to 995 or you’ll get an timeout
  6. Click “Add Account”

Afterward gmail will ask if you’ll like to setup send-to permissions through gmail for your hotmail account.

Once everything is complete, just sit back and wait for you emails to be downloaded into your gmail!

Final de Cadena

dimarts, novembre 7th, 2006

A Patucos li van enviar una cadena d’estes que donen prou asco, no tenia molt d’interés tret el final. Aquí el teniu.

Enviad sencillamente este mensaje a al menos 5 millones de conocidos vuestros.

Esta cadena la comenzó en 1625 un monje moldavo apasionado por la informática en una parroquia de Portugal con el fin de salvar a Teresa, una niña gravemente enferma. Hoy esta niña tiene 378 años y tiene un cáncer de testículos y una horrible fiebre de tiroides que le contagió un ciervo al violarla en el bosque cerca de un estanque contaminado por
deshechos radioactivos. Además, durante un safari en África del Sur organizado por Halcón Viajes, al visitar en zoo de Johannesburgo, un panda importado del Himalaya se le comió una rodilla y una oreja.

Por eso, por favor, no rompáis esta cadena, hacedlo por ella. Sois su única esperanza de cura, y además os traerá suerte.

Como le ocurrió a un joven irlandés que, en 1912, envió este mensaje por SMS. Esa misma semana vio cómo le ofrecían un billete gratis para un crucero inaugural en un fantástico trasatlántico británico, el Titanic. Durante ese viaje descubrió los escalofríos del amor y las ventajas de la natación.

No conservéis este mensaje en vuestro ordenador más de 16 minutos, sino la maldición se cebará con vosotros hasta que lluevan billetes de las antiguas pesetas.
