Hello guys,

I suppose I have committed a far greater blunder than, that can be resolved by normal corrective measures. So at last I have decided to go for a re-insatallation. Anyway, thank you guys, for your compassionate support and efforts to help me.

The reason why I fell into this tragedy:- [Writing this to warn other guys committing mistakes like me and to discuss the difficulties that I faced while getting used to Linux OS]

There are some software installation procedures, and other actions in Linux, that I am still not accustomed with.

For example; [Android phones do not connect to WiFi Hotspots created on a PC, they only connect to WiFi-Access-points] The procedure to create a 'WiFi Access-point' in Linux, is really tough for a newbie like me.

Whereas in Windows, there are softwares called 'Virtual WiFi Routers', that can be easily installed and used instantly. So I had installed one such 'Virtual WiFi Routers' on Windows after failing to create a WiFi-Access-point on Linux OS and so I had to occasionally revert back to Windows OS now and then. That was quite annoying because I had reboot my Dual boot system.

So then I decided to go for the Virtual-Machine, so that I need not reboot my system and could access Windows OS on Linux itself, and this mishap occured when I was tinkering with resizing the Virtual Drive created on the VM.

Ofcourse my problem of creating a WiFi-Access-point on the Windows OS in the VM was also not successful, which I will be discussing on a new thread.

See you on my new thread.

Thank you
