I have a dual-boot system of Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04 (AsusX55C) I want to install bluetooth drivers on my pc in Ubuntu and there are drivers that are supported only for Windows 8 according to my pc ,so I have heard that we can install Windows drivers in Ubuntu so how to do that? And the most important thing that the drivers are not manual they have to installed through the installer that the manufacrurer provide so how can I run that installer in Ubuntu. Thankyou.

Output for command lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; lsusb is

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:blaze/rtbth-dkms

sudo apt update

sudo apt install rtbth-dkms

sudo vim /etc/rc.local

Add the command modprobe rtbth &> /dev/null right before "exit 0" and save.

sudo chmod 777 /etc/rc.local
sudo apt install blueman

Reboot.

sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start
systemctl start bluetooth
sudo modprobe btusb 
sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service
sudo service bluetooth restart
