“Detection Error on Storage Device” on dual booted Windows 10 machine


Problem

Previously I went into the potential broken storage issues and (possibly) resolved with the solution provided in this answer.

However, when I booted into Windows 10 system today, it first forcibly rebooted a couple of times and made updates and then it ran into the “Detection Error in Storage Device” error. This error somehow disappears after I cut the power and rebooted about 2-3 times. I am afraid this error would come back some day and cause my research data/code loss.

However, I had no clues about what exactly this means even after reading this question.

My questions are

  • What I could do to make sure all my data stored in this machine is secure.
  • How do I fix this issue (if possible).

BTW, the model of my machine is Thinkpad X270 which I bought in Sep. 2017. It worked fine for about 16 months but somehow ran into these storage errors this March.

Could someone help me, thank you in advance!

WiFi on Ubuntu 19.04 is insanely slow compared to Windows 10

I have just freshly installed Ubuntu 19.04 on a partition on my hard drive and am dual booting with Windows 10. I ran internet speed tests on both operating systems and got a download rate of 104mb/s on Windows 10. However, on Ubuntu (version 19.04) I am only getting 4mb/s. I’m not sure if this is a driver problem or a bug with Ubuntu itself. Help me please!

Windows 10 – Critical Error | 0xc0000001 | nvstor.sys

Upon booting I am met with this error:

After multiple tries, the operating system on your pc failed to start, so it needs to be repaired Error code: 0xc0000001

So I tried to recovery > Safe Mode I am met with: Critical driver nvstor.sys is missing or contains errors.

Then I tried to run a repair and it asked for my microsoft account password and it says it’s incorrect. I know is right and I have entered it over 50 times and checked the correct password in LastPass and it matches.

Windows Subsystem For Linux Reset

Related: Is there a way of installing Windows Subsystem for Linux on Win10 (v1709) without using the Store?

When installing a WSL distribution outside of the Microsoft Store (for example on a restricted network, see linked), many of the standard means of interacting with that distribution are not available. In my example, when I go through Settings > Apps and Features, the distro is not shown in the list and the management features are not available. If I get my manually installed linux instance into a bad state, what is the correct way to reset it and bring it back to a fresh install?

Windows Virtual Desktop Preview Deployment

I am trying to deploy a small number of host VM’s in Azure as part of the WVD preview. I get the “green check marks” all the way through right to the point where I am ready to deploy. The VM’s get created and are running but “deployment fails”. Seems that the Vnet and the NICs have no inbound or outbound port rules and don’t have a network security group attached.

I have never encountered that when I have previously spun up Azure VM’s.

I also changed the WVD Vnet to a peered Vnet that is in use and connected to my AD domain.

Has anyone else out there setup the preview successfully ? If so maybe I can pick your brain as to what I am missing for networking
