I do not understand what you mean by that sentence. Does the live session load and run correctly? Do you get this "not authorised" message when you are using the live session file manager to access the Windows partition? Are the Windows partitions encrypted?

Have you read this?


Note this comment

In your firmware, disable QuickBoot/FastBoot (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=12397979&postcount=9) and Intel Smart Response Technology (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=12460938&postcount=6) (SRT). If you have Windows 8, also disable Fast Startup (http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/6320-fast-startup-turn-off-windows-8-a.html).

This also applies to Windows 10. It might be useful if you take a screenshot from Windows of your partition layout and attached the image to your thread.
