    Dual Boot

    Hello, I am using Kubuntu KDE plasma and I'm finding it extremely difficult just to perform basic functions and it's severely impacted my workflow. Ideally, I would like to dual boot windows 10 or just completely revert back. It seems like this is such a simple task, but for some reason I cant figure out how to do it... I tried mounting an .ISO and that didn't work, I can't install .exe files...I have no idea what i'm doing. It would really help if I could get some live support and someone walk me through this...

    If you want 'live' support, click 'Other Support - Ubuntu IRC Support', or open your favorite IRC client & go to #ubuntu on freenode.

    Chat channels are listed on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList (support channels have a webirc that can be accessed via browser).

    I'm not sure you understand what dual booting means. It will mean you have two+ partition groups on your hdd/sdd, and at boot you select which you want to run (windows or Ubuntu). To switch to the other you reboot to return to the boot-manager menu (grub usually) which asks what you want to run. You don't mount ISO's on Ubuntu, you write them to a thumb-drive & boot them, letting them install themselves. I'm not familiar with windows 10 so couldn't advise, but I always prepare my disk (gparted/kde partition manager) before hand, though because [partition changes] require the drive to be unmounted, I use a 'live' system to do it (ie. my Ubuntu wouldn't be mounted).

    Re: Dual Boot

    *.exe files are for Windows, and will not natively run on Linux.

    I found some information here on mounting ISO files on KDE, hope it helps.
