I noticed the latest version of Freya (0.3.2) has some fixes for GRUB and EFI.

Yet I would like to know the right way to install it on dual boot with Windows 10.

I've seen many tutorials with different procedures each. Is there a definitive method for installing with dual boot Windows 10 with the latest version that features these new fixes?

Some of my doubts are regarding differences between tutorials:

  • Install alongside windows or Something else?
  • Using boot repair after installation?
  • Disable something from the windows side?

This is not the same as Prepare for dual-booting with Windows since that method uses the "Something else" install method.

You should be able to just click "Install alongside Windows", without the need for boot repair or any other modification. It's what I did on my most recent installation.

  • Worked like a charm. It seems everything has been simplified over time even though most tutorials online have not been updated. Commented Feb 2, 2016 at 18:41
  • I think it is most likely that they are not updated because there is no need for a tutorial anymore.

Not sure if you've seen these other two questions but they may help.

  1. Prepare for dual-booting with Windows

  2. Cannot boot Freya after installing alongside Windows on UEFI

  • The first answer is the common BIOS setup. The second uses boot repair and legacy mode. I believe there's no need to change to Legacy anymore. Commented Feb 1, 2016 at 16:06
