[ubuntu] How to set up a dual boot with windows 10 and ubuntu 16.04 LTS on Dell xps 15 9550

  • Hi,

    I've been scouring the internet to find a decent guide in order to install ubuntu 16.04 LTS in dual boot to the pre-installed Windows 10 on my Dell XPS 15 9550 but to no avail.
    The Dell Laptop is in RAID and has an SSD (presumably a nvme drive) according to its base settings and from the my order report on Dell's website. I've tried partition my current RAID storage to have some space for Linux, turned off fast start up on windows, and to switched to ACHI mode on BIOS, then tried to install 16.04 LTS but there are no storage drivers shown when prompted the partition section. I know that I've done something wrong between or during those short steps but I am unsure as to how to approach setting up ubuntu.

    I need to set up ubuntu for work and dual boot to windows 10 for other miscellaneous things.

    If anyone is kind enough to layout the steps in which to set up the system, I'd greatly appreciate it. If need be, I have a Windows 7 OEM to reinstall windows, sadly I don't have Windows 10 OEM disk as of writing this thread.

    Thank you.
