I have Ubuntu installed on my NVMe drive on my computer. I wanted to install Windows 10 alongside Ubuntu. I followed tutorials and when I boot from the USB stick which has Windows 10 on it and go through the steps I cannot install it on the disk which has Ubuntu installed as it gives an error although in the tutorials I saw online it worked fine. Here is the error that appears: enter image description here

I went into the installation log file and I cannot know what is causing the issue, here is the contents of the log file

the most compatible way is to have windows first on the drive (really) then install Linux distro. If you do find a way to do that i think there is. You may have to re burn 10 if you cant do it the other way, I think you had too prepare Grub by going into its configuration file make changes / then make more changes, it is a hassle. check the setup files for clues to an easier way Gl.

U can read the setup files view the logs on a computer that does not include the corresponding kit, you must run a script from the root of the media that installs the Event Trace for Windows (ETW) provider. From the command line, type:

" Cscript D:\sources\etwproviders\etwproviderinstall.vbs install D:\sources\etwproviders " the D: is in example DVD but whatever you tried to install 10 with use that letter or whatever

  • So what are the steps to install windows first? Do I have to delete the drive in the step shown in my screenshot then install windows in it then install ubuntu after that?

You must install to your usb of the type GPT or MBR.

You have to compress volume disc like this enter image description here

than you have not active this disc

  • Please edit your post to include some explanation on why you think disk compression will solve the OP's problem.
