  • I would guess/suspect that it is a Windows partition, and that Windows is hibernated or semi-hibernated (alias uses 'fast startup'). This means that Ubuntu should stay away from it to avoid corruption. If you want Ubuntu to see it, you can avoid hibernation and turn off fast startup in Windows, and try again. – sudodus Jun 30 '18 at 15:09
  • @sudodus What should I do now? should I install again? I want to wipe out windows partition completely please suggest. – Mohsin Jun 30 '18 at 15:11
  • Are you sure that it is a Windows partition? Or do you want to test it with some command lines (in a terminal window) to be sure? Could there be some data (documents, pictures etc) that you want to copy to another drive or partition before wiping it? – sudodus Jun 30 '18 at 15:13
  • I am sure this is window partition, of Window 10. But before wipe out I want to see the data I have. Because after installing Linux I never saw them. Where are those folders? – Mohsin Jun 30 '18 at 15:16
  • Are you able to boot into Windows? If not, please run the following command lines, and edit your original question to add the output. Indent each line 4 spaces to render the output as 'code' to make it easier to read: sudo lsblk -f and sudo lsblk -m and sudo parted -ls and df – sudodus Jun 30 '18 at 15:21
