    1. Enter BIOS, set supervisor password
    2. nvavigate to main tab, press ctl+s
    3. change SATA mode to AHCI
    4. Reinstall Windows from bootable USB
    5. Install Ubuntu without any problems

    Thank you guys for your replies, especially @JordanB. Your post about RAID led me to victory :D
    You're welcome.

    Have you first set and saved a supervisor password? Then have you re-entered the BIOS menu with the supervisor password? Then followed JordanB's directions immediately above your post?  Jack E/NJ

    I did everything except windows installation as my window is preinstalled.
    My harddisk partitions are not showing while installing ubuntu 18. Only bootable USB is showing as /dev/sda. I have Acer Extensa 215-52
    Do I need to change anything in BIOS or other settings?

    Try MintCinnamon 19.3 to see what it does. Jack E/NJ
