linux – I’ve created a bootable Windows 10 USB Drive, but my desktop will not load it

I followed a tutorial online to create a bootable Windows 10 USB drive on Linux, but it does not boot when I choose it from the boot menu. I’ve been waiting for a while, hoping it just had to load, but it’s been almost 20 minutes, and basically nothing is happening. I am using a desktop pc, and the BIOS is “MSI CLICK BIOS 5” (not sure if that matters). Also, would it change anything if it’s plugged into a USB 3.0 instead of a USB 2.0 slot?

backup – Samba/Avahi and changing permissions on Time Machine external drive

I recently decided to use my Time Machine external drive as a Raspberry Pi NAS and backup my data there. I’m using Samba and Avahi on latest Raspberry Pi OS. After setting everything up I’m still getting this Finder error when I’m trying to connect to it from my Macbook:

The operation can't be completed because the original item for "Backup Plus" can't be found.

I’m connecting as a samba enabled user.

My guess is that my mounting directory is owned by root instead of pi user. I want to change this but I’m not sure how filesystems work with permissions and I don’t want to mess up my backups (I still want an option to use the drive on Macbook directly). I’m using hfs+ on my drive.

Is it safe to change permissions on pi’s mounting point? Are the permissions stored in relation to the OS? Do they only affect mounting directory or are there any changes stored on drive itself? Is there a possibility to brake my existing backups when changing permissions? Maybe permissions are not the issue and there is another cause?

My smb.conf:

(Backup Plus)
    comment = Backups
    path = /media/pi/Backup Plus
    valid users = pi
    read only = no
    vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr
    fruit:time machine = yes

My avahi service:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone='no'?><!--*-nxml-*-->
<!DOCTYPE service-group SYSTEM "avahi-service.dtd">
  <name replace-wildcards="yes">%h</name>
    <txt-record>dk0=adVN=Backup Plus,adVF=0x82</txt-record>

Cant Format Seagate Expansion External Drive

I bought a new Seagate External Hard drive. I did a format before starting to transfer my files. but during the format the power cut out due to power shortage here in our place. When power comes back I checked my external again. it tells me that the external needs to format but I am not able to format it using the normal format. Disk management freezes when the external is connected, I also tried to format it using diskpart but when I am in the “clean” part my hard drive disconnects. is there someone here experienced the same? how you resolved it. please help. thanks in advance

customs and immigration – When driving from Paraguay to Brazil via Ciudad del Este, with the intent to drive back to Paraguay, does one need to get a stamp at the border?

When driving from Paraguay to Brazil via Ciudad del Este
(Puente Internacional de la Amistad aka Friendship Bridge), with the intent to drive back to Paraguay (without going to another country before going back to Paraguay), does one need to get a stamp at the border?

I know that if one wants to leave Brazil to a country other than Paraguay (e.g., Argentina), then one needs to get a stamp driving from Paraguay to Brazil, but I’m unclear about the case of a round trip.

How to save Unity assests to another drive?

My C: volume has almost no space left.
Therefore I want to transfer all my assets to the volume E:/. And save my new assets automatically on the E:/ volume. I have searched very long in unity for save options of unity assets but nowhere found a setting option for this.

terminal – How do I access files, copy them on an external hard drive, and see them on it?

I’m trying to recover the password of an old iMac with a little trick I’ve learned. To do that, I need to access recovery mode, which doesn’t work for some reason. I know the shortcut is cmd + R. I’ve also tried Shift + cmd + R but that didn’t work either. So I went into single user mode to access the files, which worked. I have an external hard drive that is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) to put the files I’m looking for on the iMac into the drive. I copied them and I went to my computer to access it. But now my drive isn’t mounting!

When I did the copy I ran the command cp <file> /dev/disk1s2. When I try to mount it on the other computer to see the files, I tried mounting it through the command line with diskutil mountDisk /dev/disk2 and diskutil mount /dev/disk2s2. Both commands gave me an error saying that the disk failed to mount. I also tried mounting it through Disk Utility but nothing happens.

I need those files because it contains the password of the computer. How am I going to see the files? I’ve also tried going into another user account and copying the files but that user needs sudo to access them and that user isn’t part of the /etc/sudoers file. In Single User mode, I tried to add the other user to the file but everything is read-only even though I ran /sbin/mount -uw. I think if someone told me how to fix the read-only issue in Single User mode, I would be able to create a new admin account by running rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone The user account I’m trying to recover is the admin account of the computer so that’s why I think that would work.
