Hi, I have been trying to dual boot on my windows 10 laptop, but every time one or another issue occurs. Here are the major problems I faced:
While installing Ubuntu, the installation gets completed. Still, at the time of boot, the GRUB menu does not display the option of Ubuntu, and the Diskpart also does not show Ubuntu installed in the partition I selected for installation.
While installing other Linux OS such as Manjaro, Kali, etc., the installer does not detect the partition I created for Installing Linux.
When I searched on the Internet, it recommended I change the disc SATA mode of operation, but I cannot access the Advanced BIOS setup options on my PC.
I have been facing these problems for over a month now, and it gets really frustrating every time I try a new Linux OS.
It would be beneficial if you could help me out.

@akgarg20 -- have you considered a different approach, namely to run software like VMWARE or ORACLE VM, to create a "virtual machine" into which you can install your secondary operating-system(s)?
Different VMs can be defined. So, just select to boot whichever Linux variant(s) that you have installed , and it will run as a "guest" under the control of the VM app running on your computer?

@Itsmyname I did try Oracle VM, but it is extremely slow, even on my laptop, which has 16GB RAM. Currently, I am working on WSL Ubuntu, but my main concern is to find out what is the actual problem due to which I can not dual boot on my laptop. All other alternatives are working.

@akgarg20 -- I did try Oracle VM, but it is extremely slow
Check the definition of the Virtual Machine -- the current settings may be limiting the V.M. to a "slice" of everything -- say 25% of your CPU, one "thread" instead of multiple threads, dedicated less than 4 GB of RAM. When you bake an apple pie, you only allocate a small slice to your young child.
