    What is the position with your PC now?
    Did you stop the installation of Ubuntu?
    Can you still boot into Windows 10?

    It was in 2012 that Microsoft required vendors to install Windows 8 in UEFI boot mode to gpt partitioned drive.
    Most Windows 7 installs were to MBR(msdos) partition drives in BIOS boot mode.

    Early UEFI often had issues and UEFI needed updates & Linux had to create some work arounds for UEFI that worked with Windows but did not necessarily follow UEFI spec.

    Problem solved. I think the problem was the BIOS settings, I disabled fast boot. The partitions also had errors.
