    Windows ****ing 10

    Warning: Update 1511 tinkering with partitions?


    First of all I would like to thank the Microsoft for all of the great things they have done to improve windows update in this recent OS release.

    So I have tried to install this update 2 times. Both attempts have left ubuntu un-bootable.

    I will fix this problem, eventually. Not tonight, I'm too tired and busy. After that I am likely to do one of two things.
    1) Disable the winupdate service or whatever in win10
    2) Format the issue at its source.

    It is silly... amateur. How can it be, that not one geek working at microsoft, who dual boots windows 10 and ubuntu, took notice of this hostile update?
    The whole can disable/can't disable updates based on the version of your windows just feels very high school drama-ish. Why as the owner of my pc, should I not have the power to delegate software updates as I see fit. Does microsoft own my pc or do I own my pc?

    To be honest I really don't even care, I just want easy to download (i'm on old school dsl) and safe to install updates.

    Just a warning I guess, to other dual booters.

    I appreciate your frustration, but your execution of Microsoft might be a bit premature.

    I am dual booting Win 10 Home version 10586.17 with Linux Mint 17.2 xfce.
    After reading your post, I went to check out my Linux.
    I had no problem booting to Linux at all.

    Yes maybe.
    I have no clue what is going on. I do know that my linux setup was working fine yesterday, and i did nothing other than reboot to windows to try the update. No crazy linux things or updates or whatever that would harm the partion occured the last time i ran ubuntu.
    I do have ext2fsd installed on win10, the linux patition is setup as a fixed disk. Do you think this would this have anything to do with it?
    In a brief search i looked at the windows community questions and found a question about this problem. I just wanted rant, sorry.

    That's ok. Not to worry.
    I have done my share of rantings when the computer was my worst enemy. I understand.
    I am not well versed in Linux. I wouldn't dare to offer suggestion on fixing Linux.
    Sorry.
