  1. I am writing to say, I just followed your tutorial on how to dual boot *Ubuntu with Win 10. All worked perfectly. I just want to say thank you for the excellent guide. A while back, I tried to load Mint w/win8 on same hard drive with no success. You gave me some tips, but I got frustrated and gave up till now. So I want to say thank you for then and now. I am going to try out some other things on your site too…..so thanks again, kevin c.
