Dual-boot installation of Ubuntu on specrtre with Optane disk and NVIDIA graphics card

HP Recommended
Spectre x360 15
Linux

I've spent days and days trying to dual-boot install Ubuntu in my computer but I have been not successful.

Every time I install Ubuntu the EFI partition gets corrupted and the winload.efi file gets deleted making it impossible for windows to boot up.

I believe it may has something to do with the fact that my laptop has 2 disks and uses an Optane system.

I'm wondering if that is what is happening or what else I can do?

On this link there is more information about the issue:

I'm sorry, but we here are not equipped to provide detailed Linux support.

HP only warranties their PCs for usage with the OS that comes preinstalled. IF you replace that with Linux, or add a Linux OS, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- as HP provides Linux assistance only on Redhat and then only to commercial customers.

The primary "challenge" to using Linux on any HP PC is the availability of Linux drivers. Any hardware that does not work will then range from simple (if there are Linux drivers available) to impossible (if there are NO Linux drivers available) to fix.

Since HP does not provide Linux drivers, your best bet for Linux support is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are using -- in this case, the Ubuntu Forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/


Folks on Linux support forums have experience using a variety of machines with Linux and know a lot about driver and installation issues. You will be able to get sound and detailed help there.

Good Luck
