Install Linux with in Windows

Posted in information at 3:07 pm by hackingtriks

One problem people seem to have with installing Linux is the fact you have to download an .iso, and then burn it to a CD. While burning an .iso to a CD is not hard, unless you are into it, or have done it before, it can be confusing. That is, assuming you have a CD drive, CD burner, and spare CDs. Not to mention with some Windows CD burning programs, it’s not exactly obvious how to properly burn an .iso.To solve this Debian and Ubuntu are now offering a downloadable Windows .exe file that will install Linux while you are running Windows. The Ubuntu one apparently will do all it’s automatic, non-destructive partition magic (meaning it will make your system dual boot with both Windows and Linux without hurting the Windows OS).

The Debian installer can be found on goodbye-microsoft.com, and the Ubuntu one doesn’t seem like it’s ready, but you can read about it on the wiki page.

I don’t see myself using this as I tend to build my own servers (and use Mac on the desktop). However, I can see this being very useful for systems that come with Windows pre-installed and you want Linux instead.

In my experience, a Debian or Ubuntu CD is only used to boot the system anyway. Once a network is found all the software is loaded live over the net via apt-get so this removes the first step being local (and limits some waste). Very cool.

Wubi – Install Ubuntu inside Windows w/o Partitioning

Posted in information at 10:55 pm by hackingtriks

If you want to install ubuntu 7.04 Feisty, but you don’t want to modify your Windows partition and you want to install it inside, Wubi is for you. According to its website:

 

553990926_a7e75a7a38_m.jpg 554266171_042bbe013b_m.jpg

Moreover, Wubi doesn’t need you to replace the default Windows bootloader, as “Wubi adds an entry to the Windows boot menu which allows you to run Linux. Ubuntu is installed within a file in the windows file system (c:\wubi\disks\system.virtual.disk), this file is seen by Linux as a real hard disk.” Then it loads the file as a loopback root Filesystem, kind like those described in “The Loopback Root Filesystem HOWTO,” but with the loopback filesystem is actually in Windows’s partition.

 

Since Wubi makes Ubuntu run inside Windows partition, there will be a little bit performance penalty, especially when your Windows partition is fragmented. Moreover, if there were any error in the ntfs partition that affects the system virtual disk, you need to fix the errors with something like chkdsk in Windows first before booting Ubuntu. If you’re not afraid of partitioning, I still recommend you to install Ubuntu in a separate partition.

XP’s hidden Administrator account

Posted in information at 10:40 pm by hackingtriks

To enable or disable the administrator account on the welcome screen of Windows XP, click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT. Then Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList (note that there is a space in the Windows NT). Right click in the right pane and select New, DWord value. Give the value the same name as the Username on the Welcome Screen (it must match) for the account you wish to hide or show. Double click the new value and set it to 1 to show the account on the Welcome Screen, or set it to 0 to hide the account.

 

Example: If sahoo is a user on the computer, sahoo would be the name you give the new value.
