Hi all,

@Brink: Hello dear, I hope you are really fine. :-)
I tried methods given by your link but my system is not that good boy to answer the question. Anyway, I thank you.

@johnhoh: Thanks, it worked.
It seems to be like yours. But what does it mean, UEFI or Legacy!?

I want to know is because I want after that to install an Ubuntu OS alongside Windows 10 as dual boot. But I don't know which way should I choose.
I asked many question by the text above. I would be grateful if you answer them all.
Thank to all.


@Brink: Why don't you add johnhoh's way as the fifth method on your link?
