Warning: This is a highly sensitive operation. You can very easily damage your system and lose data. What worked for me may not work for you. You would be wise to make any needed backups before proceeding. My experiences and this website are the source of this information: ...

No, to both. Systemd-boot cannot read any partitions outside its own. However, you should not have more than one EFI partition per disk (its file layout was explicitly designed to be shared between different operating systems).

There were several things wrong after I cloned partitions, none of which I was aware. on Linux several programs rely on device UUID instead of /dev/sdX notation. As a matter of a fact in e.g. /etc/fstab it is the recommended way. In my case that were entries concerning swap partition, as a result initializing script got stuck at mounting it for a while ...

This is especially true when installing a new one; occasionally a new bug creeps in, or a filesystem error occurs, which causes a new kernel to not work. In such cases, having an older kernel around as a backup can greatly simplify recovery. That said, you can limit the number ...

This is because your data might lost if you resize the partition or install Ubuntu in the partition which Windows is using. After this, you can turn on your computer(you have to change the ...

Do you have the both things installed? (Ubuntu and Windows 10)? If you do, you must have the younger OS installed first so, if you are using Ubuntu 14.04/.10 you have to install Windows 10 after it. Its kinda complicated but if the GRUB menu doesnt appear after installing Ubuntu or Windows 10, look up on Google how to fix grub menu not appearing with ubuntu

NO, once you installed ubuntu properly alongside with Windows, you can use flash drive for any other purpose. Before you do it, please refer this official Ubuntu documentation and more details with GUIs this site.

I am dual booting. My Win7 partition is still activated. Probably can't use the product code for a new install tho. There's always Loader by Daz. Their fault for getting rid of WMC.
