  1. Hello There,

    Fully agree on Interview Questions. We’re seeing a lot of projects tackle big complex problems but few seem to have taken into consideration and in particular reasons to adopt.

    I began the installation wizard for installing Ubuntu. I clicked "install ubuntu alongside windows" then had to quit the installation. When I started the installation up again the continue button after highlighting the button for "install Ubuntu alongside windows" wasn't clickable. so I went back to windows and checked my disk manager and my main drive "drive 0" had an EFI System Partition that I'm thinking was the beginning of the creation of installing Ubuntu. My question is how do I merge this EFI Partition back to the main partition so I can install Ubuntu along Windows?
    Thanks a lot. This was a perfect step-by-step guide. Don’t think it could have been done better.

    Many Thanks,
