    Some UEFI "forget" UEFI boot entries for disconnected drives. But most find Windows, but not Ubuntu.

    Is you system not 64Bit?
    And 555 bad sectors is not a good sign.

    I would not click on any links in a email.
    Possible phishing?

    I have google & did not get message.

    And Ubuntu does not access Google Mail. I use on line with Firefox or thru Thunderbird.

    E: is Windows, it will not show as E:, so you have to know what it will look like in the installer.

    Windows confuses drives & partitions. You probably only have one physical hard drive and a flash drive.
