How did the installation go?
Hard time to install Linux mint with my Hp laptop unable to allow me to do cause of no disk on it , Oh no way I have hard drive in my hp laptop and it say unable find your disk on you pc. then I do reboot 10 window fresh again .. look good with 10 window but I didn't boot Linux mint yet because if I do it again then would take me forever in min, hour, to do reboot for that. but right now I wait for some answer for the step n step I did read it but I didn't do it which I m still hold up till tomorrow then I would do it again … I m still watch youtube on my smart tv Samsung now though... I am doing good , positive think hard work … you?

Yes-

Shrink your Windows 10 partition about 1/2 the size it is and that way you will have room for Linux Mint.
Ok . I have some information how to shirk to do with it. I would take time to do maybe later in afternoon .. I have to do something though … have a goof day.....

Your screenshot shows that your Windows partition is 882.05 GB.
Half of the 882.05 is 441.00 GB.
So you can shrink your Windows partition when your ready.

I got my hands on my wifes laptop for 20 minutes :you probably only need circa 35 gig for windows ten. I don't know how you got to that gui but you can get to it by putting diskmgmt.msc in magnifying spyglass icon.
First i would do a degrag . put the word degrag into search , it shows an optimize button

To shrink a partition right click on the mouse on ..hang on i need to see your image (hate windows !!) right click on the 800 gig partition it will bring up a mini menu/dialog menu . you can play with menu.lets us know if you manage to shrink

Well hope there will be some ideas from others. But just because a system can't boot doesn't mean that a motherboard is toast. There are ways of re-setting windows password .Also you can access the partitions on your laptop from an OS booted from a usb stick. on power down and cold boot if you hit : Common keys to enter the BIOS are F1, F2, F10, Delete, Esc can you get up BIOS menu ?

If you need to reset the BIOS password this may be of some use;
