No problem. That is normal when you have 2 or more operating systems. Pretty simple. Assume you have an empty disk and boot into the installation and are at the partitioning setup. create 4 partitions. Ubuntu OS needs a root of about 25Gb that can include a /home/. 25Gb is more than enough if you keep your own data outside of the system (ie. out of / and ...

When you install MS Windows 10, it overwrites the Grub contents in MBR to its own. All your Windows and Linux OS files are intact and good. All you need to do here is to repair you GRUB files.

This is perfectly normal; it's happened to me on many UEFI computers. The boot*.efi entries and the Windows Boot UEFI Loader one should all boot Windows. MokManager.efi is for managing Secure Boot keys. You probably won't ever use it, but you probably want to keep it around just in case you end up needing it.

Check partition map and look for ntfs partitions labeled msftdata, Windows, etc. If Windows is still there, insert the Win install disk and reboot into it (remove the Live Ubuntu medium while restarting the PC). Let the Wins install process begin and ...
