OS windows 11 on hp w/ 1 TB memory. This is a new laptop that I just bought and have nothing on yet.

I am trying to dual boot windows with ubuntu 20.04

following these steps here except that I used Rufus to create a bootable USB drive because for some reason Balena was not working for me.

The problem as you can see pic that I do not see the unallocated free space? And I also do not see the install ubuntu alongside Windows boot! So from the second image what should I select?






Update laptop specification:

HP ENVY 17 Laptop PC
•1 TB Intel® SSD + 32 GB Intel® Optane™ memory
•32 GB DDR4-3200 SDRAM (2 x 16 GB)

    It's probably because your disk subsystem is set to RAID or RST. Check your BIOS. Search here on AU for "RST" and you'll find the solution.

  • What brand/model system? Some require additional UEFI settings. Many (even new) require UEFI firmware & SSD firmware updates. And if very new hardware, you may need 21.10 to have newest kernel & drivers. help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI Shows Windows screens askubuntu.com/questions/221835/…

  • What are these "require UEFI firmware & SSD firmware updates"?

  • For example, one new machine would not even boot without using acpi=0, but then only one CPU core was visible. That problem went away after the motherboard firmware update. Check with your vendor for any updates. At power on, you usually get a screen with all sorts of BIOS/frimware information for the version installed.

  • @heynnema I can not find what you suggested. Are you referring to UEFI HII Configuration? I searched the bois could not find raid to rest but found this here h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/… and the UEFI was disable. I unable it and tried again but the same.
