Consider how you may backup windows 10 and how you may need to recover it before you attempt this.

You have a safer solution by using a free virtual machine if you have any doubts about dual boot.

It is pretty easy to make a fast usb drive that has a real linux install and it will protect your install.

I haven't had any problems using Ubuntu LTS on a modern system but each uefi seems to be unique. Generally the dvd works pretty good but making a usb may have you fooling with some settings or choices. Some computers may report both legacy and uefi choices on same media.

Thanks,

I installed the ubuntu system using the dual boot method.
but the windows 10 system started to have problems.

the opening of the system slowed down,
I needed to re-introduce the audio driver,
system resource usage increased

I searched some methods (power options, fast boot) but the problem was not solved.

Welcome to LQ!!! Hmmmm... M$Win ?shouldn't? be affected (unless some UEFI thing Idk)
Maybe more details are needed.

Have you looked into VirtualBox.org? (then Linux runs as an 'app' ON M$Win10)

Normally, Windows should not be affected by a dual boot. Linux and Windows are totally independent and distinct.

However, the slowing down at boot might be explained by the absence of Fast Boot. You see, Windoze is so slow it has to trick you by not fully shutting down, so that the next time you boot the machine it only wakes from hibernation instead of doing a full boot. This could explain why, now, the Win10 will boot slower.

But apart from this, Windows must not be affected. Unless, now I'm thinking, you shrinked the Windows partition using Gparted and you accidentally caused the crash of some Windows program found in the space you needed for Ubuntu. Then it is a possibility. Try to use a Windows repair disk to scan the partition to see if there is anything wrong.

If you have time and if you have backup (e.g. recovery partition/DVDs), you can restore your Win10 back to factory and try installing Ubuntu again, and this time, shrink the Windows partition from within Windows, then install Ubuntu in the free space.

@!!!;

My computer's drivers are not stable on linux. you also need to have WindowsUN installed for games and performance-critical applications.

also

I have VMware installed inside my windows system but windows is not safe.

@aragorn2101;

Thank you so much.

"However, the slowing down at the boot might be explained by the absence of Fast Boot. You see, windows is so slow that you have to trick you by not shutting down, so that the next time you boot the machine only wakes from hibernation I can not wait to get back to the car. "

very logical.

I split the disk into 4 pieces
(I have made disk space reduction where windows is not installed)

I think I'm going to drop the windows version from 10 to 7
