Ubuntu / Re: I can't install Linux Ubuntu/Mint

You said you chose the option to install Ubuntu next to Windows. Did you actually make space on the drive for the installation? Defragment Windows and shrink the Windows partition before running the Ubuntu installer?

I found that I have firmware that I don't have.
This does not make sense. 

In my previous post I asked "Have you created a D:/ drive on your disc?  And if so; does it occupy all the spare space?"

HI,
that  is one hell of a question, have you tried Peppermint OS?
I have used this for a few years now and whilst not a computer geek have found that it does everything i want it to do, its lightweight, fast and adaptable to your individual tastes, have a look and give it a whirl.

Good luck,

Degsy.

General Help & Advice / probably already answered however,

Looking for help.  I need to shrink my WINDOWS 10 Partition then ADD the unallocated portion onto the start of my LINUX MINT 20 Partition.  Knowing what I want/need to do hasn’t always worked for me I have a tendency to mess Drives badly.  Ergo, I need CLEAR, CONCISE and for all CORRECT instructions.  I do not want to go thru’ the pain of reinstalling everything once again.  Three times has been enough.

Here is WINDOWS version of the drive:
WINDOWS 10 needs to have 20 GB ‘chopped-off’ and added to the 30.73 GB partition.  At the beginning of the 30GB drive:

The Linux DISKS version of the same drive:
WINDOWS 10 shows as the same, but Partition5 is the LINUX Partition and I’m unsure of why P5 and P6 are held within P4.  Obviously missing some vital fact here.

Then to further confuse me I have Linux Gparted’s version:
Which shows a similarity to the WINDOWS version. Where the problem lies.

How do I do this ‘chop and grow’ operation without totally messing-up?

Hello,
After searching, I found that I have firmware that I don't have, but I don't know how to install it since I can't even install Ubuntu/Linux Mint/Kali Linux :/

Hello

I have just got here today. How'ya all doin?

So, ... i have been distro-hopping all this time and even today i havent found the right distro to settle with. I just recently found out there are 600 distros and 500 more in development. I go to distrowatch.com to see which is the most popular and i try them down the line. So at the moment MX Linux is the top ranking but i didnt like the interface and although it could be customised i couldnt change it to my liking. I tried Manjaro but i didnt like how it works or how it looks, I tried Mint, Lubuntu, Fedora, elementary, deepin, zorin, solus, puppy, most of the other major ones as well. At the moment i have Makulu and Ubuntu on my system but with so many distros out there which is the right distro for me i dont know which one to choose.

Hmmm.  Very odd, as you say. 
I know very little about Windows although I have had experience where Windows would hang on to disc space that wasn't being used even after Windows had been removed - not letting Linux have it.
Have you created a D:/ drive on your disc?  And if so; does it occupy all the spare space?

When you get the initramfs error, can you type into the window?  I mean: if you type anything on the keyboard, does it appear o the screen?
