I want to dual boot Ubuntu alongside Windows 10 on an ASUS VivoBook X512FJ. I've already installed Windows 10, but I have problems installing Ubuntu. I tried 18.04 and 19.04 - came to the same problem:

I already did the following:

  1. made space for Ubuntu to install using Disk Manager in Windows: Picture of partitions

    The output of sudo fdisk -l when booted from the USB stick is:

  2. I burned the iso image on the USB drive

  3. Fast boot and secure boot are disabled
  4. When I go through the installation I don't see the window where you can choose installation type (I.E. "Something else"): it just goes through and the only disk that I can install Ubuntu to is that USB with an image.

The screen where I get stuck:

the screen where I get stuck

  1. I updated the BIOS/UEFI. After that when I choose "try Ubuntu before installing" it first shows Ubuntu loading screen and then I see this: Picture of what I see

Questions:

  1. Can someone confirm I boot from UEFI mode? Can someone confirm I boot from UEFI mode?

  2. How do I install Ubuntu?

  • Can you please share your disk partitions with me so, I can help you with it? I am sure that their is some thing wrong in this pic and I can help you cope with it once you share your disk partitions with me. I have installed Ubuntu several times I am sure I can help you. – Mansoor Ahmed Memon Jul 21 at 12:12
  • Where is the partition you allocated for Ubuntu. If it is the unallocated one. Than I suggest you to allocate partitions for Ubuntu from Windows disk management tool. Because when I installed Ubuntu i was getting different harddisk size from windows and different size fo linux. Like my hardisk was 167GB as shown by windows but Ubuntu showed 180GB. However, that is not the issue. You just select your hard drive from the Boot loader installations dropdown menu and continue. Hope that helps! – Mansoor Ahmed Memon Jul 21 at 12:47
  • It is the unallocated one. How can I do this from Winows disk manager? I am struggeling finding a way to do this. – Luka Matevžić Jul 21 at 12:59
  • Is Windows hibernated/fast start up on? askubuntu.com/questions/843153/… Be sure to boot Ubuntu installer in UEFI boot mode. help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI & askubuntu.com/questions/221835/… – oldfred Jul 21 at 14:14
  • Windows was not hibernated/fast start up was not on. I tried this before. Thank you. How can I be sure that I boot in UEFI boot mode. I am reading those posts and it's very hart to understand what is what and why something helps. I am pretty lost with what is BIOS UEFI, how can I see the difference or where do I check and so on ... Thank you all for helping me, I hope something will help ... – Luka Matevžić Jul 21 at 15:34
