Problems installing 20.04 desktop on main drive partition along side Windows 10

Spread the love

0/2 trying to install Ubuntu alongside Windows10
So first off let me say I am a noob to Linux. I have built a few PCs before so I believed I had the ability and have researched this thing thoroughly before hand but I have struck out twice trying to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 10.
I have: 1 Tb NVMe (with windows 10), 1TB SSD (windows apps), 2TB HDD (Backups etc)
The first time I tried the “something else” method after making some free space of 200gb on my main windows drive. I used recommended partition sizes but I got a “fatal error” in grub during install and could no longer access Windows after. It was corrupted and I couldn’t get boot to recognize it. Reinstall was probably needed anyway so I formatted the drive and started over.
The second time the “install alongside windows 10” option was not available so I once again tried “something else”. This time I was prepared with a Windows image in case something went wrong again. It did. I had set up my partitions on the free space by only setting root, swap area and small EFI system partition. No other fancy stuff. The same thing happened and I had to reinstall Windows 10. Thank goodness for my restore image.
Now I don’t know if I’m a glutton for punishment or what but I want to try the install alongside windows 10 option to see if that will work but can’t get it to come up.
What am I doing wrong here!?
