Installing dual boot on HP pavilion Gaming(512 SSD)

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to dual boot my device by installing ubuntu on SSD alongside Windows 10, Should I take any precautions while doing this? Are there any side-effects? What precautions should I take so that the performance of laptop is not affected? My device has 512 GB SSD and no HDD.

you posted to desktops why? I dont do laptops ever but here you go.... NO LAPTOP TOLD just gaming,

try googling that

the w10 64bit  is at version 20h0 ? or so and that is what matters and that means, ask microsoft what it can do NOW.

"This update was codenamed “20H2” during its development process, as it was released in the second half of 2020. Its final build number is 19042".

as  general rule no, not on 1 SSD.  w10 hates funny boot structures and also violates UEFI rule that sadly get worse V3.

but with 2 drives you can play the game of BIOS acting (badly) as  boot manager, you doing the boot on the fly key hit

each time you pick a different drive. at boot.  (not tried with UEFI  me,,not now not EVER)

what most do here, 99% they run there OS in hyper V  mode. images.

that works best.

and is supported by MS and linux (some destros)

all my laptops I have 2 or 3 SSD, I have the DVD drive gone and ssd caddy in the place my other laptop I have 3 SSD one is M.2.  1,2,3 drives in 1 laptops I have.

 

on laptop space is a problem and a pain so i  do not post to LT. for  that reasons, and for folks fearing the 36 screws

and broken ribbon jacks easy.

 

 

NO warranty answers by me.
