    Hello, that’s a good explanation, but initially I am not getting the option for “Instal Ubuntu alongside windows” and in “something else“, it is not showing me free space, please suggest me on this..!!

      On UEFI installed machines, the disk is automatically partitioned with GPT partition scheme. Ubuntu installation must be performed from UEFI in this case. In Legacy Mode you can try to change HDD partition table from MBR to GPT or recreate partitions, with the second partition as extended.

    Hi! First of all, great tutorial, thanks for sharing. I have a problem in step 8 second part, after creating the root partition the volume that’s left changes from “free space” to “unusable” and I’m not longer able to click the + button to create the home partition.

    Do you know why this may be happening? any ideas on how to solve it? Appreciate the help.
