How to install Ubuntu any version alongside any windows, Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows 8, etc.

Sometimes, we may want to experience a new OS, and Ubuntu is a great choice. Ubuntu is a super light and fast operating system; you don't need to pay.

If you wish to use both windows and Ubuntu simultaneously on the same computer, this article is for you.

Downloading Ubuntu Latest long-term support releases (LTS):

So, we have to download Ubuntu first. Go to and search for Ubuntu.

Click on the download button and download any LTS version of Ubuntu.

Boot Ubuntu in USB Pen drive:

Then insert a USB Pen drive to boot Ubuntu OS. Format the USB Drive and extract the .iso file into the Pen drive. In the meantime, free and format one of your drives for Ubuntu. Be sure to back up your data on other drives. Do not format C Drive or the drive where your windows are installed.

Now reboot your computer and go to the boot menu by pressing the f2/ f10/ f12/ Del button, depending on your computer's BIOS boot menu key. Then from the boot menu, select the installation media, in this case, your Pen drive.

Ubuntu Installation Process:

Now you will be taken to these windows where you can either try Ubuntu without installing it on your computer or install Ubuntu on your computer. Select "Install Ubuntu" to install it on your computer alongside windows.

After selecting Install Ubuntu, you will see something like this:

Next, you must select Language, Location, Time zone, and other settings. In Installation Type settings, choose something else and then click Continue.

Installation Drive Selection for Ubuntu:

After clicking on Continue, you have to select the installation drive. And this is the tricky part. You have to be very careful while selecting the drive. You have to remember which drive you have prepared for the Ubuntu installation. And you also have to remember the following chart, which gives you a clear idea of which drives name is what in Ubuntu.

C Drive becomes sda1 in Ubuntu. Then D Drive is sda5, E Drive is sda6, F Drive is sda7, and so on. Select your elected drive, in my case, E drive, which is sda6.

After selecting, click on the little minus sign shown in the picture:

Memory allocation for the Root directory:

The Drive becomes Free space. Select Free space and click the plus(+) sign to create an Ubuntu partition.

Now, we have to select the Root directory Memory size. Follow the picture of the video attached to this article.

Memory allocation for the Swap Memory space:

It may take some time to create the partition for the root directory. After finishing, select free space again and click the plus(+) sign to choose Memory Swap space.

Memory allocation for the Home Directory:

By doing the same process, you must now select the Home directory memory. Follow the screenshot and set the home area memory. Don't change the Size because we will use the rest of the memory for the Home directory.

Now click the Install Now button and select Language, Location, Time zone, and other settings. Finally, set your user details and click on continue. The installation process will begin. Once installation is completed, restart your computer.

Ubuntu is an open-source Operating system. So change your computer and get a new look.

Ubuntu is a popular operating system for cloud computing, with support for OpenStack. Ubuntu is released every six months, with long-term support releases every two years. The current long-term support release (LTS) is Ubuntu-18.04.2.
