    Good Morning Abhigya !

    What EXACT model of your laptop?
    Legacy mode is no longer used in many versions of Bios because it has become absolute.

    To install dual-boot it is totally wrong to use different modes.
    It is perfectly possible (and the ideal way) to install both systems in UEFi.

    AN515-52 is the series.
    The EXACT model has a format like this or example: AN515-52-57WR

    The basics for installation would be:

    1- Login to Bios and disable SecureBoote enable Bootmenu F12
    2- Create a bootable flash drive with Ubuntu x64 ISO

    For the USB stick, do the following on CMD as Admin:
    diskpart
    list disk
    sel disk [the drive's dosco number]
    clean
    convert GPT
    create partition primary
    format fs = fat32 quick
    assign

    Then extract the ISO to the flash drive.

    Disable X startup for Nvidia GPU.
    To do this, press the "e" key and type at the prompt:
    nouveau.nomodeset = 0
    After, press F10

    4- Just proceed with the installation

    What will be the effect of disabling x startup for Nvidia GPU? Will the graphic card  still function? 
  • AbhigyaAbhigya Posts: 7Member New User
    I didn't understand how to disable x startup. Can you please provide stepwise instructions on how to disable and enable it?

    In windows? 
    I don't understand what an "e" Key is. 
    Ubuntu is not booting up, if you mean something on the terminal.

    Please do not post multiple threads on the same issue. You can NOT dual boot in Legacy mode. If you tried to install Ubuntu in legacy mode, your Windows system and recovery partitions are now probably lost. Ubuntu must be installed alongside Windows in UEFI mode only. It must also be prepared as an iso from a GPT partitioned USB installation USB stick with Rufus freeware. Jack E/NJ

    During the Ubuntu installation, from the home screen, press the letter E on the keyboard to open an instance of Terminal.
    In it type nouveau.nomodeset = 0
    After, press F10

    As already stated, both Windows and Ubuntu must be set to UEFi
