If you are running Windows try creating an 'ext4' partition on the unallocated space. I was facing similar problem with Windows 8 but creating a partition beforehand solved the problem.

From the output of your boot-repair command, it looks like you have an UEFI system… However, Ubuntu is installed in non-UEFI mode, and Windows is installed in UEFI mode so only one of the two is going to work at a time without changing the boot parameters… The best you can do is: re-install Windows 10 in non-UEFI mode or reinstall Ubuntu in UEFI mode ...

There are some peculiarities about your installation: Your computer has two Windows Recovery Environment partitions, /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5. My guess is one is from your previous Windows installation and the other is for the new installation, but I can't be positive of that. I doubt if this duplication is causing you any problems per se; I mention it ...

It looks like your Windows system was hibernated and not actually shut down. That causes issues for Linux's ntfs3g driver. So, you need to boot back into Windows and shut it down cleanly. In their infinite wisdom, the Microsoft developers decided to make it hard for users to shut down their machines. According to this site, you need to: Mouse over ...

The Linux fsck utility is basically just a front-end for filesystem-specific filesystem check utilities such as fsck.ext2 (aka e2fsck) and fsck.xfs (which actually does nothing; to check XFS, you must use xfs_check, and to repair it, you must use xfs_repair). If you really mean EFS, then that's pretty exotic. I just checked the kernel configuration utility, ...

The Linux kernel supports software RAID (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SoftwareRAID) or even Logical Volume Management (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lvm) without any cards or extra hardware.

Even though It's Willem said you can't you can. First, before I respond, I need to know: Do you have multiple hard drives, or at least 1 TB of space. If not, it would not be smart to follow through doing this. If you do... sudo apt-get install gparted Then open gparted in your search bar and create a new partition, leaving at least 500 GB for the ...

Chances are you need to repair the Windows 7 disk from within Windows. There are no tools in Ubuntu that can do this job. (The ntfsfix program does only the most basic checks and then flags the partition as needing repair in Windows.) Also, be sure you shut down the computer in Windows; do not perform a suspend-to-disk operation. The latter leaves the ...
