    Yep, a dual boot or a Virtual machine is advised

    I tried to find a tutortial (I know a few exist), but wasn't successful.

    Try searching the tutorial section here on TenFoprums and over on EightForums.com (these should work just as well on Win10)

    The tuts are Windows centric, but there is plenty of good information that can be used.
    VMplayer (the free version) works in Linux - I think you have to look in the lower right hand corner of the web site to find the free player version.

    whs is one member who knows the ins and outs - if you get stuck, search his tutorials.

    Windows 10 Pro,

    I'm running a dual boot with Linux Mint and Windows 10. It seems to work fine when it wants to.

    Sounds as though you are the best person to help thetechguy. You've already done this.

    Windows 10 Pro,

    Well thanks, I will always give what ever help I can. In my last statement I said that my system works fine when it wants to. Well that statement is incorrect. When I upgraded Windows 10 recently from the previous build to the new build 10122, I had disabled the dual boot to allow for any easier restart, otherwise I would have to sit here and monitor each time Windows wanted to restart my machine. Well that whole process went real smooth and I now have the dual boot set back up and there is absolutely no problems. When I start up my computer it goes to a screen that allows me to select which OS to boot into. It is all smooth and really behind the scenes once I am logged into which ever OS I choose. I am really digging Linux Mint 17.1, it is a nice smooth OS and I highly recommend everyone to at least give it test drive.

    Windows 10 Pro,

    Oh yeah, one more thing. I went to a dual boot over the virtual machine only because the virtual machine used too much CPU processing and power and my CPU started to run just a tad bit too hot for my tastes. With a dual boot there is absolutely no extra strain on my system.

    Wait! I have another concern

    I found out a thing that seems quite complicated to me. And I don't want to do anything wrong to my laptop again. So, no dual booting.
    I will erase my USB stick and use LiLi Rufus to burn the iso. And when it expires, I'll install Ubuntu again, then I will need to be away from my laptop so i can not be startled. !
    ​That is what I said. But to explain further, i will make a ubuntu backup after using my windows 10 iso. But now I have another concern. How the heck do i get windows 10 installed. It won't let me do some things to my primary drive! Erase or what? The warning when i click erase is exactly right - If i have important files on there, my computer won't be functional.The question is now,what do I do to my hard drive!

    You create an image backup of your hard drive to an external USB hard drive using a program like Macrium Reflect Free.
    Tutorial here: Imaging with free Macrium

    Then you follow these instructions: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1...n-install.html
