In this video I will be showing you how you can remove the 'Error: diskfilter writes are not supported. Press any key to continue' error in Ubuntu 14.04 which you see when you boot up.
The commands are as follows:

sudo nano /etc/grub.d/10_linux

Find the line which says quick_boot and change it from 1 to 0. Once you have done this, save the file and exit. You can then run the following command
sudo update-grub

If you now reboot your machine, you should no longer see the error anymore.
