I have Ubuntu 20.04 installed on my machine. My current HDD fas following partition status, after Once dual booted windows 10 (I uninstalled it).
I found the UX of POP OS very intimidating, and being a ubuntu user it won't be a huge change. So I have decided to dual boot pop os 20.10 with existing ubuntu 20.04.
As I went ahead with live booting pop for installation, it asked for a new ESP along with it's new root partition. It seemed the current esp (100 mib is not enough) and a 512 mib is needed.
What I did: I installed pop os creating a new esp for it. But after that I could not find ubuntu on pop's Systemd-boot. Now there seemed some work around. But I don't wanna have two efi partitions on my disk. Only one is allowed. I booted to ubuntu from bios menu. And deleted pop partition.
My query: How do I install pop os with one esp partition (feel to create a new one) dual booted with existing ubuntu?
Can I merge current esp with left-side unallocated 500mb (old windows recovery disk) to make it larger.
I am not sure whether:
- Creating a new ESP partition (1 GB)
- Mmoving current esp /boot/efi data to the new esp
- Deleting current esp partition
- Installing pop on new esp
