Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello.   looking forward to some good answers.

 

I want to keep PC (  HP laptop RYZEN ) as is and add dual boot feature to new USB SSD drive.

 

I want to do some experimental  work with linux operating system.

              executing and running Python for different applications.

 

( issue 2)

It would be nice to be able to run NON Microsoft applications on current PC.

 

Above board options  Do not have laptop???

   This was a bad surprise!

@SLWForce10 

I'm sorry, but HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled.

IF you replace that with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.

Modern PCs with UEFI, instead of the older BIOS, are especially difficult to install because you have to go into the UEFI settings and make several changes before you can even boot from a USB stick -- and we are unable to assist in that work.

Your best bet for support now is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.

Good Luck
