I have a MSI GF63 laptop (with core i5 and Nvidia GTX 1650) and I'm currently trying to dual-boot ubuntu alongside windows. This laptop is a 2019 edition (bios firmware fully updated) and comes with UEFI and the GPT partition table. These are the methods I've tried so far (with no success)
1. Live USB 1
Config: Partition Scheme- MBR, Target Device- BIOS or UEFI
Live USB shows up when BIOS is set to Legacy only (not even on UEFI with CSM). After that I proceeded with the installation (by creating the required partitions for swap, root and /home) but I could not boot ubuntu after installation completes. The system boots directly into Windows and not even lets me choose the OS. A quick google search told me that I need to install ubuntu in UEFI mode and not Legacy (since my defice is a UEFI one). And as I'm not well versed with these things (read casual user or n00b perhaps) so I can't figure out what that means.
2. Live USB 2
Config: Partition Scheme- GPT, Target Device-UEFI
Expected the Live USB to show up on the boot menu (accessed after pressing f11 on my system), but it didn't. At first I thought there was an issue while creating the Live USB, so i formatted the USB and created it again (using rufus) but it still didn't show up
Nothinhg I do seem to work for me. I've tried the above methods once while turning off fastboot and Secure Boot and other time with Secure Boot on and fastboot off, but nothing seems to happen. My Live USB boots fine in Legacy mode and has no graphics driver problem (and while in Ubuntu, the default graphics is handled by the CPU and not the GPU, so there are no apparent problems with Nvidia Graphics drivers).
As windows came preloaded, I don't have an installation media and so don't want to uninstall everything and install ubuntu from scratch. I want to install ubuntu alongside the current Windows 10 without disturbing it.
