Dual booting Ubuntu and windows 10

First, download the latest version of Ubuntu from their website https://ubuntu.com/#download,then inject your SanDisk Pendrive with more than 8Gb (I used 16Gb) to your pc. After downloading Ubuntu we need Rufus (The Reliable USB Formatting Utility, with Source) is a free and open-source portable application for Microsoft Windows that can be used to format and create bootable USB flash drives or Live USBs.

Open the Rufus, there we can see the SanDisk Pendrive, also we can see the partition scheme I choose GPT and my target system is UEFI

After that on the status section click on start to begin the process

Then restart your computer and open the boot menu option using the shortcut f9 in case if it didn't work (for me it was pretty daunting but after a couple of google searches I found the solution) go to the settings-->update and security-->recovery--> on the recovery choose to restart on advanced setup

After a couple of seconds there will be three options go for the Troubleshoot -->Advanced options-->UEFI firmware settings and last choose restart now

That's all you will see the boot menu options then you have to choose the one with Sandisk

After that, you will be redirected to the ubuntu installation

Now enter all the user credentials, setting up the accounts, etc after that, you will be asked to restart when you go for it you can safely eject your Pendrive

Now you can dual boot Ubuntu and windows :)
