  1. i have a pc with an ssd (windows 10) and an hdd for storage. Is there any way i can install ubuntu OS on SSD but have all ubuntu home files on the HDD? That way if i want to boot into ubuntu or windows it will boot up fast.

  2. 4:44 "Upon restart you should see the GRUB menu." Unfortunately, I don't. It just boots straight into Windows. Successful Mint install, but no GRUB. I have tried everything.

  3. I have really enjoyed your channel and have used it to install Linux cinn 18. I have two questions. Everything worked great but when I went to open Linux it asked for a password. I put the password in and it said it was not the right password. After double checking my password, it still kept asking for a password. I tried the password and user name that I set up when I installed windows 10, still no luck. I had re-format my Linux drive and have not installed it again. Do you have any ideas? I did notice in this vid that you automatically checked a password log in at your Linux screen. The second question I have. Can I set up a separate user name on my Linux, or am I stuck using my windows user name? Thank you for the great video.

  4. Why go into "something else" if the linux installer does it easier?
    It's so hard (at least for me) to go into something else,I'm afraid I'll mess up the system.

  5. I have a question: I have created a partition and installed linux. all went well and smoothly except changing the bootsequence. Now the test is over I notice that the required disk size on the partition needs to be larger. I wonder how I can extend the volume of the partition? how should I identify the correct partition? I see several in computer management and I do not want to remove the incorrect one(s)

  6. 1:45 When I do that with no dvd inserted, from the moment it turns on I get a message saying i need to insert a bootable usb or dvd. So I have to press the shutdown button, turn it back on, enter the bios and change it back to uefi and then it will boot into windows 10. Is this supposed to happen? Shouldn't it detect that there is no dvd and automatically boot from the hard drive?

  7. I was in between ubuntu, mint and fedora. I ended up going with mint. My question is which desktop environment is the most reliable one and what was that 10% swap area for? It is almost 2 gb and I would like to think that as a horbor area to swap data between os's.

  8. excellent video, but i followed step by step but i didn't get a grub menu. I have to go into F2 and choose legacy to boot Mint and then back again to UEFI to boot Windows.

  9. Hi, I have followed your tutorial and I have installed Linux Mint on my computer which already has windows 10 installed, somehow I have messed it up, I have windows 10 as default on the grub menu, but when I look in Disk management, Linux doesn't show at all anywhere ??? I made the partition as instructed, I can't understand what I have done wrong?

  10. hi megal i realy need your help i have installed and uninstall some things and my computer began to show me a lot of ads so i have gone to control center in my computer and unstalled some things and now the "file management" option desapird along with some other options and some of my programes wont start please solve this problem

  11. Thank you for a great video . I have one question if you please .
    Why must there be 4 partitions/drives or less to dual boot with linux ?
    I have 4 physical drives equalling 7 partition/drives . If I disconnect drives other than drive 0 , and install on a partition on that drive , can I reconnect those drives after install . Also does the count of 4 or less partitions include the EFI system partition and the recovery partition that Windows 10 created ? … sorry thats two questions , thank you very much in advance 🙂

  12. I love this tutorial, but I much prefer using a separate used SSD(40GB or less) and cram it with 2 Linux distros, if possible.

    The last time I dual booted with Linux was…the last time I dual booted with any OS.
