This tutorial will guide you on how you can perform the installation of Ubuntu 16.04 in dual-boot with a Microsoft Operating System on machines that come pre-installed with Windows 10. This guide assumes that you’re machine comes pre-installed with Windows 10 OS or an older version of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 8.1 or 8. In case your hardware uses UEFI then you should modify the EFI settings and disable Secure Boot feature. In this particular case, on Windows installation steps, when formatting the hard disk, you should allocate a free space on the disk with at least 20 GB in size in order use it later as a partition for Ubuntu installation. Login to your Windows machine with an administrative account and right click on the Start Menu -> Command Prompt (Admin) in order to enter Windows Command Line. Burn the image to a DVD or create a bootable USB stick using a utility such as Universal USB Installer (BIOS compatible) or Rufus (UEFI compatible). On the Launcher hit on the second icon from top, Install Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and the installer utility will start.
The option Erase disk and install Ubuntu should be avoided on dual-boot because is potentially dangerous and will wipe out your disk. To create the first partition, the root partition, select the free space (the shrink space from Windows created earlier) and hit on the + icon below.
I'am a computer addicted guy, a fan of open source and linux based system software, have about 4 years experience with Linux distributions desktop, servers and bash scripting. Like i’ve already mentioned, newly EFI firmware are kind of tricky with installing new OSes. Try to disable all options related to windows os from efi (fast boot, secure boot, etc) and proceed with ubuntu installation from uefi mode. I am having trouble with the grub after installing Ubuntu alongside Windows as well as when I manually select my partitions. Ubuntu is an operating system with Linux kernel based on Debian and distributed as free and open source software. In this page I’ll give you a step by step guide for beginners how to install Ubuntu separately or alongside with any other os (such as Windows 7).
3.) If you have internet connected, you can check “Downloads update while installing” and “install this third-part software” but it takes time.
6.) Follow the wizard to setup user account, location, timezone, keyboard, etc and finally start installing. So all of these have you installing Ubuntu on the same physical drive as Win7 using a partition? When it tried to send a bug message to devs, it says the problem cannot be reported: This is not an official Ubuntu package. So did you try the option “Something else” and manually create partition for Ubuntu installation? If I press nothing, the only windows can be booted, BUT if I press the F12 key, it calls an Ubuntu boot loader and there I have a choice – either boot into the Ubuntu or boot into the Windows. Hey guys, after i install ubuntu on my ext4, when i reboot i cant find ubuntu on my computer?
I just had to respond to this comment… are you telling me you selected the option erase all data, and now you are mad that all data has been erased?
To create a USB stick from which you can install Ubuntu, you must first download Ubuntu and, if you want, verify the download.
All windows user should have Ubuntu live cd with them because it is a very useful tool that can help you to repair your PC when something goes wrong in windows. You can also create a bootable USB flash drive that will do the same job and it’s not necessary that you have Ubuntu installed in your system. After you open the program form the distribution drop down box select Ubuntu and 9.10 live from the version drop down box. Look at the bottom of the screen and select the drive letter that is associated with the USB flash drive from the drop down box. You can try using Ubuntu and see how you feel and also install software that you need but once you restart the PC it will revert back to its original state. There you have the guide which will help you to create a Bootable USB Flash drive containing Ubuntu and you can use it to restore your windows or even reset or change password. Use Rufus in case you want your USB drive to be compatible and boot in EFI mode on machines with UEFI.
Usually it depends on your resources or hardware components (CPU, RAM, HDD), but it should not take too long, maybe just a few minutes.
So, I am trying to install 16.04 alongside windows 10 but the installer does not give the option of installing alongside it. After multiples tries I am still not able to get the gnu grub to load giving me the option. You can find the option to load Ubuntu on newer UEFI if you press a special bot key at machine start-up.
Assuming you’re using a USB thumb drive, the real problem was that for newer computers, you need to explicitly create the Ubuntu ISO for GPT, not MBR, hard drives. If you want to experiment with Linux without dual booting and potentially impacting your main operating system, the best way to do so is with virtualization.
How long it takes to install Ubuntu Linux in the virtual machine varies on the speed of the computer and the speed of the internet connection, but somewhere between 20 and 45 minutes is not unusual. Because Ubuntu is contained within a virtual machine, it’s practically impossible to screw up your host computer, so feel free to explore, try out new commands, install random software, and learn without fear of breaking anything. First they switched the three buttons to minimize, maximize and close a window from the right side to the left side and changed the order of these butons to the exact same order as the buttons in Mac OS X. Linux has never managed (and will never manage) to get any market share, but they see the succes of Mac OS X, so Ubuntu just copies everything from Mac OS X.
Ubuntu is just a really bad copy of Mac OS X with way too many bugs to be usable for every day usage.
Also, Linux may not have market share on desktops but do you know the likelihood that this website is hosted on a linux machine?
I have OS X Mountain Lion and, just warning you all, VirtualBox does not work on the beta OS. I did not succeed to get a working network connection on Ubuntu (I use only wifi network) is it normal? Would it be a smart approach to create a guest account on Lion and then install only VirtualBox and then an Ubuntu image? You wouldn’t get much benefit from that, you might as well just run VirtualBox from your main account. After I clicked “Install Ubuntu” I was faced with two options – (a) overwrite existing OS or (b) add partitions.
I believe that the answer to this is that it doesn’t matter, because you are dealing with a virtual OS, which means virtual storage as well.

Although maybe the better answer is to choose (a) overwrite, because it reduces complexity of handling virtual partitions.
I’d like to create a VM with Ubuntu on my iMac, but want to encrypt the Ubuntu system. Windows 8's tile-based interface puts a bold new spin on the familiar Windows interfacea€”so bold that many long-time Windows users are threatening to jump ship to another operating system rather than learn Microsoft's "modern" UI. To be completely honest, Ubuntu's default Unity desktop may be slick and pretty, but it isna€™t the most configurable Linux environment around. To open a terminal, press the Windows key (known as the Super key in Linux), type Terminal, and press Enter.
Youa€™ll also want to move the window management buttonsa€”close, minimize, and maximizea€” located at the top-left corner of each window by default.
For this method, wea€™ll be throwing Ubuntua€™s default Unity desktop out and going our own way.
Log out of Ubuntu using the menu at the top-right corner of the screen and click the icon next to your name on the login screen. Use the buttons on the Items panel to remove the items you dona€™t want, add the items you do want, and reorder them as you see fit. Applications Menu, Separator, Launcher, Window Buttons, Separator, Notification Area, Indicator Plugin, Show Desktop.
Add as many launchers (read: shortcuts) as you like to the launcher section and think of them as your new quick launch bar. Go into the Session and Startup panel in the Settings Manager, select the Application Autostarttab, and click the Add button.
To make your panel look more like Windows 7a€™s panel, right-click it, point to Panel, and select Panel Preferences. You can also change the applications menua€™s graphic and make it use a Windows 7-style start orb. Phew, that took a lot of tweaking (and a lot of text)a€”but we now have a Windows 7-style desktop on Ubuntu. If you followed the second method, log out and select Ubuntua€™s default desktop environment from the login screen. Chris Hoffman is a tech geek who's been writing about everything technology-related for years. PCWorld helps you navigate the PC ecosystem to find the products you want and the advice you need to get the job done. Yes, you can install Ubuntu along side with Windows 10 as instructed in this article, just follow the guidelines properly have Ubuntu with Windows 10 in no time..
Can I install ubuntu in a drive like D or E where I have other files and folders too (the free space in the drive is much more than 20GB)?
Also, in case I install ubuntu in an already existing drive instead of free space, will it be easier to delete it later when I no longer want ubuntu on my computer? You can install Ubuntu on any drive you want but first backup your data before you format the partition with a Linux file system. The first thing you need to take care is to create a free space on the computer hard disk in case the system is installed on a single partition. Leave it as default and reboot the computer in order to proceed with Ubuntu 16.04 installation. After the boot media finishes loading into RAM you will end-up with a completely functional Ubuntu system running in live-mode. Choose the language you wish to perform the installation and click on Continue button to proceed further. Next, leave both options from Preparing to Install Ubuntu unchecked and hit on Continue button again. In case you want a custom partition layout, check the Something else option and hit on Continue button to proceed further. When finished, hit the Install Now button in order to apply changes to disk and start the installation process.
On the next screen adjust your machine physical location by selecting a city nearby from the map. Pick up a username and password for your administrative sudo account, enter a descriptive name for your computer and hit Continue to finalize the installation.
After the installation process reaches its end hit on Restart Now button in order to complete the installation. After Ubuntu finishes loading, login with the credentials created during the installation process and enjoy it. In case you need to switch back to Windows, just reboot the computer and select Windows from the Grub menu. So did as suggested and installed on the space created after shrinking windows, however unable to boot in any way from this place …. I disabled fast boot, however while installing, I get the following message ‘This computer has no detected operating systems.
If that’s the case try to delete one partition and re-create a new slice as extended. For laptops with high RAM and would like be able to hibernate the computer, set the swap size as much as RAM. No.1 ubuntu is NOT like windows and therefore it doesnt name your primary hard disk drive C. This guide will help you to create a Ubuntu 9.10 bootable flash drive which you can use to restore your windows. I have allocated 200 gb and have done the installation through automatically windows boot and by manually.
Usually this key is F2, F11 or F12 (usually for Acer) but it depends on manufacturer and model. Virtualization allows you to run Linux directly atop your primary OS, whether it’s Mac OS X or Windows, in a separate virtual machine, with practically no potential for error.
Once VirtualBox is installed and the Ubuntu ISO is downloaded, you can proceed with set up and installation. When finished, Ubuntu Linux will boot into the desktop and you can start exploring and having fun. The only thing you can potentially mess up is the virtual machine itself, which is unlikely but could be simply deleted and reinstalled again if it happened. Being a free solution, it’s performance is not as impressive as VMWare or Parallels though, and if you intend on using virtual machines for production it would be worth considering a paid solution for maximum performance.

Go and spend time on ubuntu blogs, read articles when they defend the design paradigm shift towards. You can attempt to maximize the performance by just running VirtualBox on it’s own without other apps open and by dedicating it as many resources as you can afford. Of course, you'll still find yourself in foreign territory even if you actually follow through and make the jump. In fact, if you're having trouble with the transition (or plopping Ubuntu on a parent's PC), you can tweak and tune the OS to feel pretty darned close to the Windows environment you've forsaken.
One adapts Ubuntua€™s default Unity desktop to make it feel slightly more like Windows, while the other entails a bit more work and a different desktop interface entirely to create a truly Microsoft-like experience. The taskbars running the top and left sides of its screen are locked in place and cana€™t be moved whatsoever.
If youa€™re a new Linux user, dona€™t be scareda€”Linuxa€™s powerful command line makes it easy to follow instructions youa€™ll find in articles like this one. You can also click the Ubuntu logo at the top-left corner of your screen instead of pressing the Windows key. Copy and paste the following commands into the terminal window in order, pressing Enter after each command to run it. To enable the icon, window border, and widget theme, copy and paste the following commands into the terminal. Never feara€”like Windows 7a€™s taskbar, the launcher derives its colors from your desktop wallpaper. This is as close to Windows 7 as wea€™re going to get with Ubuntua€™s default Unity desktop environment. Wea€™ll have to do some heavy customization to get it looking more like Windows 7, but ita€™s all graphicala€”if youa€™re a Windows power user, youa€™ve done this kind of tweaking many times before. Unfortunately, Xfce cana€™t group applications and open windows the same way Windows 7a€™s taskbar can, so ita€™s a bit more old school. Youa€™ll also want to disable the 'Show button title' option in the Applications Menu itema€™s settings. If you didna€™t run any of the commands in the Unity section above, run the commands below in a terminal. If you're typing this out rather than copying and pasting, note that the command includes a double-dash, not a long em dash.
On the Appearance tab, select Background image and browse to the \usr\share\themes\Win2-7-theme\gtk-2.0\Panel\ directory on your computer. First, find a Windows 7 start orb imagea€”you can find several on Google Images, but make sure you get a transparent PNG image. It lacks a Windows 7-style Start menu and taskbar, but Windows users that prefer the classic Start menu and taskbar behavior will find it immediately familiar. You can rip out software from the default desktop, use all sorts of themes, install a completely different desktop environment, or even build your own desktop environment by cobbling together pieces from different desktop environmentsa€”thata€™s what we did in the last section. If you'd just like to use the Windows 8 desktop without all of the operating system's funky design and interface changes, check out our guide onA banishing the Metro UI from Windows 8. Or does it have to be installed in a free space which has been created by shrinking one of the drives?
If you later delete Ubuntu partition your system will remain in a unbootable state because the boot loader stage two (GRUB) will be installed on that partition.
You can choose to Install Ubuntu alongside Windows Boot Manager, option that will automatically take care of all the partition steps. On this guide will recommend that you create two partitions, one for root and the other for home accounts data and no partition for swap (use a swap partition only if you have limited RAM resources or you use a fast SSD). Ubuntu 16.04 provides NTFS file system support automatically so you can access the files from Windows partitions just by clicking on the Windows volume. Check out Settings and make sure you have it configured properly, though maybe it is different for linux? The thing from the last screenshot (the place where you start your apps) is just a bad copy of Lions Launchpad. Installing a new operating system is easy, but wrapping your head around an alien environment can be more difficult, even if you're using a comparatively user-friendly OS like Ubuntu Linux. Unity is still fairly flexible, however, and some basica€”for Linuxa€”tweaks can give it some of that old Windows 7 charm.
Instead of following a list of long steps telling you to click here and click there, you can just copy and paste these commands into a terminal window and hit Enter. The first command adds a personal package archive (PPA) to your system that Ubuntu can install packages from. As you run each command, youa€™ll see your desktop gradually transform and become more Windows-like. For this article, wea€™ll use Windows 7a€™s default wallpaper, which you can find all over the Internet.
If it doesn't quite scratch your itch, keep reading to learn how to create a more traditional Windows 7-style look using the Xfce desktop environment. Once youa€™ve found a good image, right-click the Applications menu button, select Properties, and use the Icon button to select your start orb. Remember to log out and log back in after running the commands to restore the global menu bar. Also if you enter UEFI setting you can further setup what OS should be booted, by default, on start-up.
The second command downloads information about the newly available packages, and the third command installs the Windows 7 themea€”no installation wizard required.
Uncheck the 'Automatically show and hide the panel'A option and check the 'Automatically increase the length' option.
The theme pack we installed includes a variety of panel backgrounds, so feel free to experiment.
Typing sudoA before each command allows it to run with root permissions, similar to running a program as administrator in Windows. No.3 Once you have downloaded the ISO image file you next need to burn the ISO to a DVD disk.
At this point, you should have a single taskbar-like panel across that bottom of your screen. Once you have burnt the ISO to a disk, this should be a Live DVD meaning you can boot your computer with it and start the installation process.
If you select the option to install Ubuntu it will step you through the installation process and its generally much quicker than windows too.
