Dual boot New Ubuntu 17.10 with Windows10 and Windows 8.1

Here i am writing this article for Linux lovers and people, who can't stop using Windows O.S. on a P.C. so, quick and easy steps are here to dual boot Ubuntu 17.10 with windows 10. Given below guide also applicable for other Linux distributions like Kali Linux, Elementary O.S. (all Debian based Linux ). Let's quickly check out dual booting latest Ubuntu Linux with windows 10 P.C.

Dual booting latest Ubuntu 17.10 with Windows 10/8 :

Prerequisites are as follows :

·      Latest Ubuntu 17.10 ISO image which need to be burned to a USB.

 ISO download               Torrent Download

·      Windows 10 already installed in the system.

Steps are as follows :

1. Make a bootable USB using ISO image :

Here we need to create a bootable USB using previously downloaded .ISO image of Ubuntu / any Debian based Linux distribution. We will use Rufus to create bootable USB, in replacement of Rufus, Win32 disk imager also works like charm.

2. Disk partitioning:

Installing Ubuntu over windows can be done in an alongside partition or in a separate partition, i v'll suggest to install it in separate partition because if we choose alongside option, both O.S will get effected in case of single O.S. crash (Windows/Linux). Make a new partition by resizing some previous partitions using Gparted in Ubuntu live C.D.

Tip: If you have multiple partitions of sufficient size then resize anyone of them expect C drive (Windows installation drive) as there are chances of data loss / Windows files corruption. 

Are you unable to get how to do partition? Don’t worry it’s covered in later steps with full elaboration.

Step 3: Installing Ubuntu dual booted with Windows 10
Let’s see how to get it working

Firstly, let's plug in bootable Pendrive of Ubuntu Linux which we created in step 1. Now press system power button & press boot options key (F12 – differs on other system) on system startup. Then select USB from Legacy or UEFI mode in which windows is installed.

After successfully booting from Live CD, you will see a menu, need to select Try Ubuntu without installing.

Then Ubuntu will open where you need to open app drawer and search for gparted for doing the partition.

Once gparted open you will see all the partitions in your hard drive now you need to find partition which you can shrink out for creating a new fresh partition in which Ubuntu will install. Be, sure you should never try to shrink partition in which windows is installed because this can cause data loss and if there is no choice except it then first backup your data.  
After finding the partition that we need to shrink, right click and select Resize / Move.

Now, with the help of your mouse adjust the size of new partition and click Resize/Move.

Unallocated space of shrink partition will appear right click on it and select create partition as primary/extended and File system type: Ext4 and click add button.  

Now we got newly created partition, click on apply all operations button. A popup window will open click on apply then your process for partitioning done.

After partition work is done we are finally installing our Ubuntu in our newly created partition, Click on Install Ubuntu 17.10 icon on Desktop.

Here, you will get some screen options like choosing language etc. just click continue/next.It will
show preparing to install.

Here comes one the important part, need to be very careful i.e. installation type, as i have already mentioned above we will not install both windows/Linux on same drive so need to select something else and click continue.

We have already created new ext4 partition beforehand? We shall use the partition for installing Ubuntu. Select partition and press enter.

A popup window will open now in Use as select Ext4 journaling system, click format the partition and in Mount Point type / {root}. Click ok button.

Now it’s done for setting up mount point, click Install Now Button, a warning will appear for partition format click continue.

Select your time zone and click continue.

Here, you need to type username and password, click continue.

After the completion of installation process, just restart your computer, you will see a grub menu where you can select from Ubuntu/Windows.

So, that's it for dual booting Ubuntu 17.10 with windows 10. Any if you are facing any issues feel free to comment out :)
