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
