I want to dual boot Windows 10 and Elementary OS 5.1.3 on my Dell Inspiron 13 7391 2 in 1. I was able to run and seemingly complete the installation process from USB, however, when I attempt to run the installation entry
ubuntu from my system's boot menu, I get a loud beep and my system begins running hardware memory diagnostics. This does not happen when booting Windows 10. I was unable to find any
ubuntu folder created in my EFI partition when I browsed it using my BIOS.
I have heard that this may possibly be a problem with compatibility with Intel RAID hard drive technology (instead of AHCI). (Note: BitLocker came enabled by default on my hard drive.) However, when I attempted to switch my system to AHCI mode, it triggered an automatic repair when booting Windows 10.
Any advice in terms of getting Windows 10 and Elementary OS to boot successfully together? Or is Elementary OS simply not compatible with my hardware? Thanks in advance.
Edit: A reinstall with 5.1.4 allowed me to boot into a Grub menu that could not read any partitions on my hard drive other than EFI. Booting the Elementary OS live CD and running
boot-repair returned my system to the state where it beeps and starts running diagnostics when attempting to boot the
ubuntu boot entry. While in the Elementary OS live CD, I noticed that gparted correctly recognized the install partition, but Windows still sees it as allocated space. When attempting to mount the EFI partition in Windows, Powershell reports that the files in the ubuntu directory are unreadable.
