I have an HP laptop with an upgraded version of Windows 10 that originally had Windows 7. I tried installing Linux Mint on it wanting to make it a dual boot computer, but Linux wouldn't give me the option to do that. It only gave me an option to erase Windows and install Linux only. I have an older Acer that had 7 on it and I was given the option to install Linux alongside Windows on this laptop, but I installed Linux only erasing Windows and I'm liking the new OS . Any ideas as to what to do with my HP so I can install Linux alongside Windows? Or do I have the wrong version of Linux that won't work with Windows?
