    Hi Matei,

    Thank you for your post.

    Unfortunately, the UBUNTU 18.04 set up did not detect Windows 10 OS, so the first option (Install Ubuntu alongside Windows Boot Manager,) did not appear in the installation process. What is the solution?

  8. NetoStark85 says:

    I had a problem after the installation, when the system resets it goes directly to Windows and I don’t know how to enter the Ubuntu OS, I tried selecting Ubuntu directly from the boot menu in the UEFI part but it boots windows anyways, how can a solve this?

  9. Matei Cezar says:

    I don’t really got the question! You can dual-boot in UEFI just as in BIOS.

  10. Fran says:

    Can I install dual boot with EFI or it must be UEFI?
