Installing Ubuntu side by side with Windows 10 is tricky with ASUS ROG G752VT.

After wasting hours on this here is the steps how it worked.

Basically this laptop is coming with 2 HDD’s 1TB 7200RPM + 128GB SSD (PCIEG3x4)

 

Steps For Dual Booting Windows 10 And Ubuntu

The steps required for dual booting Windows 10 and Ubuntu are as follows:

  • Backup your Windows 10 operating system (optional but highly recommended)
  • Create a Ubuntu USB drive
  • Enable booting from a USB drive
  • Shrink the Windows 10 partition to make space for Ubuntu
  • Boot into Ubuntu live environment and install Ubuntu

Step1 : Disable Secure Boot

  1. Windows, hold the Shift key while selecting Restart. Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options: UEFI Firmware Settings.
  2. Find the Secure Boot setting, and if possible, set it to Disabled. This option is usually in either the Security tab, the Boot tab, or the Authentication tab.

 

Step2 : Shrink Windows To Make Space For Ubuntu

If your computer only has one hard drive you will need to shrink your Windows 10 partition in order to make space for Ubuntu.

The tool used for shrinking Windows partitions is “Disk Management”.

To start “Disk Management”, right click on the Windows start button in the bottom left corner of the screen and click on the “Disk Management” option.

A screen will appear listing all the disks available to you and the partitions on the disk that is selected within the window.

The hard drive is usually disk 0. It is usually easy to spot because it is larger than the other drives and already has a number of partitions on it. As you can see from the image above there are 4 partitions. The amount of partitions on your hard drive may differ.

2. Invoke a Safe Mode boot with the command: bcdedit /set {current} safeboot minimal
3. Restart the PC and enter your BIOS during bootup.
4. Change from RAIDto AHCI mode   [ Sata Configuration — > Change RAID to AHCI] then Save & Exit.
5. Windows 10 will launch in Safe Mode.
6. Right click the Window icon and select to run the Command Prompt in Admin mode from among the various options.
7. Cancel Safe Mode booting with the command: bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot
8. Restart your PC once more and this time it will boot up normally but with AHCI mode activated.
