  1. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 18.04/Win10 dual boot - reduce Win partition and increase /home

    This is feasible but anytime you are changing partitions, it is risky. I would agree with the posts above that the first step is to make backups of any and all data that has importance to you.

    [ubuntu] Re: Creating custom ISO

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Stuck without Bios Supervisor Password while replacing laptop HD with Ubuntu HD

    Re: Installation problems - 20.04.1 LTS

    [ubuntu] Re: can't talk

  18. [SOLVED] Re: Should I create a /boot partiton while installing Ubuntu if I already have Window

    You don't need a separate /boot partition. If you are using windows 10 default it will be EFI on a GPT drive and Ubuntu will be installed EFI also. The EFI files for both windows and Ubuntu will be...
