dual boot windows 10 and ubuntu 18 on HP Pavilion 15

Pavilion 15 Notebook PC E0L70UA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am attempting to have dual boot of Ubuntu 18 alongside the default Windows 10. I have both tried partitioning the hard drive and installing Ubuntu on the separate partition and (in a different attempt, after removing the partition) selecting the option "Install Ubuntu alongside Windows"; I have disabled Secure Boot and Legacy Boot. In either case, I could not find a way to tell the machine from which volume to boot. The BIOS (version Insyde F.22) does not display the various volumes but only a generic "OS system manager" (or something similar). Does anyone know a solution to this? Should I download a dual booter on the Windows OS? Thanks

You should never use the "alongside" option as that allows the Linux installer to modify the sizes of the Windows filesystem partitions, and that very often results in corruption of Windows, making it very hard to repair since Linux tools can not fix corrupted Windows filesystems.

 

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.

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
