I used to have dual boot linux and windows 10, but after an update I never figured what happened to it, is there a way to figure that out? That is partly due since the dual boot screen stopped appearing. Because I had it setup, and would like to delete the second OS. Any thoughts? I remember I had to go into the BIOS, but is there a way to setup a second OS, and boot it from inside windows 10 OS.

  • Windows 10 is known for wiping dual boot configurations with updates. – S.S. Anne May 18 at 23:46
  • @S.S.Anne Thanks I was like so confused when that happened its been months now but I was hoping to install Linux in a safe manner is that possible? Like have it in Windows 10, and by chance is that called a Virtual Machine? Because I read these ideas like this one, and am wondering if they are safe, and won't get deleted itsfoss.com/install-linux-in-virtualbox. – EnlightenedFunky May 18 at 23:48
  • Please boot from a Linux LiveUSB, connect to the web, then open a terminal window, and run sudo lshw -short -C disk ; lsblk | grep -v loop ; df -h | grep -v loop ; sudo blkid then highlight the resulting text, copy with Ctrl-Shift-C , then open a web browser, return here, click edit , and paste that text into the question, so we can see the structure of your drive(s). – K7AAY May 18 at 23:53

    Notice LiveUSB. Write this file to a USB or CD using a disk writer tool and boot it cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current-live/i386/iso-hybrid/… – S.S. Anne May 19 at 0:03
