4. Now it’s time to install
Ubuntu 16.04. Go the
download link from the
topic description and
grab Ubuntu Desktop
16.04 ISO image.

Burn the image to a DVD


or create a bootable USB
stick using a utility such
as Universal USB

Place the USB stick or


DVD in the appropriate
drive, reboot the machine
and instruct the
BIOS/UEFI to boot-up
from the DVD/USB by

F10 or F2 depending on
the vendor
speci cations).

Once the media boot-up


a new grub screen

an Installation Type. You
can choose to Install
Ubuntu alongside
Windows Boot Manager,

8. On this step we’ll


create our custom
partition layout for
Ubuntu 16.04. On this
guide will recommend
that you create two
partitions, one for root
and the other for home
accounts data and no
partition for swap (use a
swap partition only if you
have limited RAM
resources or you use a
fast SSD).

To create the rst


partition, the root
partition, select the free
space (the shrink space
from Windows created
earlier) and hit on the +
icon below. On partition
settings use the
following con gurations
and hit OK to apply
changes:

Size = at least 20000


MB

Thanks, Matei, best instructions I’ve


found yet. But during installation I
ran into this warning to “Force UEFI
Installation” on a Dell 7520 that
already has Win 10 on it: “This
machine’s rmware has started the
installer in UEFI mode, but it looks
like there may be existing operating
systems already installed using
BIOS compatibility mode.

If you continue in UEFI mode, it


might be di cult to reboot the
machine into any BIOS-mode OS
later. If you wish to install UEFI
mode and don’t care about keeping
the ability to boot one of the existing
systems, you have the option to
force here.”

Of course I want to retain the ability


to boot into Windows, but after
choosing NOT to continue in UEFI
mode, I completed the Ubuntu
install, only to nd that BIOS couldn’t
nd it! My laptop now only sees the
Win 10 OS, and I can’t boot into
Linux.

Any idea where I went wrong? (I’m


trying to install on a second drive….
NOT onto the same drive as Win is
installed on)

Crucial info is missing at partition
stage. Don’t know what options to
pick.
“Device for boot loader installation”

Choose Window boot manager, or /,


or /home?

Okay I went back and


repeated the step leaving
the option as default
“Windows boot” and
managed to continue with
information appearing to be
okay.
Just would hate to break my

On UEFI installed machines,
the disk is automatically
partitioned with GPT
partition scheme. Ubuntu
installation must be
performed from UEFI in this
case. In Legacy Mode you
can try to change HDD
partition table from MBR to

Hi! First of all, great tutorial, thanks
for sharing. I have a problem in step
8 second part, after creating the root
partition the volume that’s left
changes from “free space” to
“unusable” and I’m not longer able
to click the + button to create the
home partition.
Do you know why this may be
happening? any ideas on how to
solve it? Appreciate the help.
