How To Dual Boot Surface Pro 3 & Ubuntu

Surface Pro 3 by default has a Secured Boot UEFI-based system. So it doesn’t allow untrusted bootloaders which will help hackers to play with boot sectors. It was a great challenge to make a dual boot with Ubuntu.

So before starting  things will be much easier if you have a docking station which will have  USB ports, an additional Mini DisplayPort, ethernet, and charging.

Steps to follow:

Boot to Surface Pro 3 and disable hibernation as Ubuntu  cannot mount drives that are in hibernation.

Now via Disk Management  Shrink the volume of the drive.(If required  disable Windows Defender and BitLocker both are known offenders for defrag operations.)

Now  hold the “+” volume-key on the side of Surface Pro 3, then press the power button to load the EFI Boot menu-Select the Secure Boot Control option and set it to Disabled

Make sure you already downloaded the latest Ubuntu ISO to create a bootable USB following the instructions here.

Restart Surface Pro 3 and under the Recovery Options menu. Select the Restart Now button at the bottom of the screen, and on the following menu choose to Boot From Device –> USB Drive, to reboot from the newly minted Ubuntu USB drive.

On  boot screen  you  will get the option to either “Try Ubuntu” or install it-better select “Try Ubuntu”

Select the “Install Ubuntu alongside Windows Boot Manager” option

You will find Type Cover keyboard doesn’t work and the WiFi is unstable

You need to download the latest drivers via Terminal add an entry to XOrg configuration to get the touch pad working on the Type Cover- you may need to apply a patch for driver support,which you can download to fix the problem.

Here is a detailed article on how to dual boot

Windows 10: Different Editions

Windows 10 is coming this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages. It will have the following editions:

Windows 10 Home is the consumer-focused desktop edition. It offers a familiar and personal experience for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s. Windows 10 Home will help people do great things, both big and small. With it, they will be more productive and have more fun thanks to a long list of new innovations: Cortana, the world’s most personal digital assistant; the new Microsoft Edge web browser; Continuum tablet mode for touch-capable devices; Windows Hello face-recognition, iris and fingerprint login; and right out of the box, a broad range of universal Windows apps like Photos, Maps, Mail, Calendar, Music and Video*.

We are also bringing the Xbox gaming experience to Windows 10, giving games and gamers access to the Xbox Live gaming community, enabling the capture and share of gameplay and giving Xbox One owners the ability to play their Xbox One games from any Windows 10 PC in their home.

Windows 10 Mobile is designed to deliver the best user experience on smaller, mobile, touch-centric devices like smartphones and small tablets. It boasts the same, new universal Windows apps that are included in Windows 10 Home, as well as the new touch-optimized version of Office. Windows 10 Mobile offers great productivity, security and management capabilities for customers who use their personal devices at work. In addition, Windows 10 Mobile will enable some new devices to take advantage of Continuum for phone, so people can use their phone like a PC when connected to a larger screen.

Windows 10 Pro is a desktop edition for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s. Building upon both the familiar and innovative features of Windows 10 Home, it has many extra features to meet the diverse needs of small businesses. Windows 10 Pro helps to effectively and efficiently manage their devices and apps, protect their sensitive business data, support remote and mobile productivity scenarios and take advantage of cloud technologies. Windows 10 Pro devices are a great choice for organizations supporting Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) programs and prosumer customers. Windows 10 Pro also lets customers take advantage of the new Windows Update for Business, which will reduce management costs, provide controls over update deployment, offer quicker access to security updates and provide access to the latest innovation from Microsoft on an ongoing basis.

Windows 10 Enterprise builds on Windows 10 Pro, adding advanced features designed to meet the demands of medium and large sized organizations.

It will be available to our Volume Licensing customers, so they can take advantage of the latest innovation and security updates on an ongoing basis. At the same time, they will be able to choose the pace at which they adopt new technology, including the option to use the new Windows Update for Business.

And as with prior versions of Windows, Active Software Assurance customers in Volume Licensing can upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise as part of their existing Software Assurance benefits.

Windows 10 Education builds on Windows 10 Enterprise, and is designed to meet the needs of schools – staff, administrators, teachers and students. This edition will be available through academic Volume Licensing, and there will be paths for schools and students using Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro devices to upgrade to Windows 10 Education.
