My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

comment No sound over HDMI running 15.04 on NUC D54250WYK
ALSA appears to not have loaded any intel hda HDMI decive. The device you see is just the default analog audio. Sadly I can't tell you why this is but it definitely is an ALSA issue.

comment pulseaudio-dlna not working with ROCKI or Airport Express
AFAIK the ROKI device should be supported. Some issues were fixed in the development branch but are not yet available through the PPA, nevertheless worth to try out. In case the issues persist it may be worth contacting the developer @Massimo through the project's bug tracking - to my experience he is very helpful. You can also try with different codecs that may work better on some devices.

This can also be done from a root shell in case we really can't boot at all.

comment How to delete the Swap partition?
See this Q&A to learn why you should not just remove /swap. But we can have it smaller if we are in fear of running short of hard disk space.

comment Help with corrupted NTFS partition
Maybe the SMART values of that drive give you an idea? You could also try to run testdisk on the image for data recovery in case you need them.

comment "Dachboden" or "Speicher" as "attic" in Austria?
As a side note: over here in the south-west of Germany (Swabia) we almost exclusively use Bühne, or less often Dachboden (which sounds stiltet to a Swabian's ear).
