Booting Windows from external Hard Drive?

I have searched the whole forum and couldn’t find anyone having the same problem with all the specifics in mind.

My laptop uses Linux exclusively. I wanted to have an option to run Windows every now and then, so I have installed Windows on my external SSD. Before installing I have switched drives and inserted an empty brand new SSD in place of my hard drive with Linux. I have installed Windows 10 (legal copy from Microsoft website with no key) on that drive and everything was working fine until I removed the SSD from my laptop and tried to boot it as an external hard drive. It troubleshoots my PC, eventually giving me an option to restart the computer. After restarting exactly the same thing.

External monitor visual noise on LTS 18.04

I am on Ubuntu LTS 18.04. I am using a Lenovo Yoga 920, i7 / 16gb. Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 620 (rev 07). The laptop screen is 4k.

When I connect my external monitor (usb-c to hdmi cable) and have it set to it’s native resolution (1680×1050) the screen has small specs of noise moving across it in a repetitive pattern. It also loses connection and re-establishes sporadically, maybe every minute, but sometimes longer. No screen tearing or other common issues I have seen searching online.

However, if I lower the resolution, it works fine. No problems at all.

I have tried using Wayland at login, but that did not help. And, I tried updating X from ppa, but I don’t know if I did that correctly.

I did not try much else because I couldn’t find any posts online with the same issue.

Can anyone help me resolve this? Let me know if any more information is needed and I will provide it promptly.

mounting an old raid external hard drive

New to the group. I have an old MyBook external, networked hard drive that windows could not connect to. I removed the hard drive and threw everything else away (should not have done) thinking I would just connect it as an external hard drive. I then figured out that is was a raid drive with a linux file system and it would not boot to the windows machine. I have a an Ubuntu machine that will not auto detect the drive. I can see it using the gnome drive tool or through the terminal. All of our digital pictures are on this drive so I do want to lose it.

Can this be mounted manually without damaging the drive?

How to post to external api within a SharePoint event receiver

I currently have a working eventReceiver for when an item is updated. It adds some values into fields on the item. no problem.

However, when I add the part I actually need (posting those values somewhere else) it breaks. I simply need to pass those two fields to a remote end point. If I remove that internal try catch which does the post, it all works fine and my fields update.

Any ideas?

Is this even allowed in an event receiver, is there a better way to do this?

using System; using System.Security.Permissions; using Microsoft.SharePoint; using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities; using Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow; using System.Net; using System.Collections.Specialized; using System.Text; namespace DocumentLibrary.BRCS_EventReceiver { /// <summary> /// List Item Events /// </summary> public class BRCS_EventReceiver : SPItemEventReceiver {     /// <summary>     /// An item was added.     /// </summary>     public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)     {         base.ItemAdded(properties);     }      /// <summary>     /// An item was updated.     /// </summary>     ///      public override void ItemUpdated(SPItemEventProperties properties)     {          base.ItemUpdated(properties);         string fullDocPath = "";         string fullDocID = "";         string responsebody = "hello";         try         {             using (SPWeb web = properties.OpenWeb())             {                 SPListItem currentItem = properties.ListItem;                 string currentSiteURL = properties.ListItem.Web.Site.Url;                 fullDocPath = currentSiteURL + "/" + currentItem.Url;                 fullDocID = properties.ListItemId.ToString();                 currentItem["MajorCategory"] = fullDocPath;                  currentItem["MinorCategory"] = "id: " + fullDocID;                 try                 {                     using (var client = new WebClient())                     {                         NameValueCollection values = new NameValueCollection();                         values["thing1"] = "hello";                         values["thing2"] = "world";                          var response = client.UploadValues("", values);                          responsebody = "done" + Encoding.Default.GetString(response);                     }                 }                 catch (Exception abc) {                     throw abc;                 }                 currentItem["MajorCategoryConfidence"] = responsebody;                 currentItem.Update();              }         }         catch (Exception ex)         {             System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("error{0}", ex.Message);             System.IO.File.WriteAllText("C:\Temp\ErrorLogBT.txt", ex.Message);             throw ex;         }     }   } 


External user gets ‘Access Required’ could it be down to these two factors?

I have an external user who’s trying to access a SharePoint online site but keeps getting the Access Request page.

I’ve been doing some rooting around and found that when I checked their permissions I get this:

enter image description here

There’s a lot of Deny in that list! I read in another post that I should go to Application Management in Site Collections and select Configure quotas but can’t find Application Management in Online

Also when I was in Active Sites and clicked on the site in question I saw a message on the right hand side saying ‘We couldn’t find the Office 365 group connected to this site’.

Could either or both be causing the access issue and how would I resolve?

Thanks in advance

SharePoint Column Formatting: Referencing External Columns in Mail To Body

Hello Stack Exchange Community,

I have a question regarding referencing external columns. In my code below, external columns are referenced using square brackets as specified in Microsoft’s online documentation.

{   "$  schema": "",   "elmType": "a",   "txtContent": "@currentField",   "attributes": {     "href": {       "operator": "+",       "operands": [         "mailto:",         "[$  Email]",         "?subject=Task status&body=Follow Up: Agreements.\r\n---\r\n",         "Dear [$  ContactName]",         "\r\nJust writing to follow up on that agreement that has been sent on [$  StartDate]. Let me know if you have any questions."       ]     }   } } 

However, after doing so fields such as $ ContactName and $ StarDate do not appear to be properly displaying their associated values. Instead, what appears on my email body is the literal code used to reference the columns (e.g Just writing to follow up on that agreement that has been sent on [$ StartDate]).

If anyone knows of the proper way to reference values in external columns within the email body using JSON column formatting please do let me know !

Much appreciated !

Why grub2 is not starting when external HD (containing a clonezilla backup image) is plugged in?

I have a Dell XPS 9570 with dual boot setting (ubuntu alongside windows 10). Normally grub2 menu works like a charm, except a very special case; when an external HD containing a Clonezilla image is plugged in, then GRUB2 never shows up and windows boot automatically. The problem is not associated with the existence of an external HD in general, but only if this HD contains a Clonezilla image into one of its directories. Any idea why that happens?
