[PLUG] DUAL Booting With "Modern" UEFI & SDD


I have used Ubuntu extensively and am considering buying a new PC based upon the ASUS X99 USB3.1

containing a 256 GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO as well as 2 2TB Seagate HDD(s) I need Ubuntu for my research, but unfortunately also have to use Windows 10 (preinstalled) for certain administrative and other functions

I have recently had the bad experience of losing a HP All-in-One installing Ubuntu 15.10 (dual boot) according to the instructions in the Ubuntu/Canonical Forum and am very apprehensive about purchasing a new PC workstation with UEFI and SSD and installing Ubuntu Dual-Boot.  Could you provide me with accurate pointers or advice on these

New BIOS/UEFI and SDD technologies, and the terrors of Modern Dual-Boot.



I would be grateful for any advice.


Thank you
