    QuestionQuestion

    I’m just trying to dual-boot my XPS and have followed the instructions by Dell here to install Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS.

    I’ve gotten as far as booting into Ubuntu on the USB drive but when I go to install it’s saying there’s not enough space on the drive – because it’s only looking at the USB…

    I’ve created the blank partition via Windows 10 (as per the instructions) but aren’t having any luck getting Ubuntu to see it. I’ve configured all the BIOS settings Dell goes over, just cannot crack it. I also did a sudo fdisk -l and only the drive and a couple other 512 byte drives come up.

    Any help would be muchly appreciated! I’ve read a bit about the drive type, it’s set to RAID – would that have something to do with it?

    For detection of NVME drive on your Dell laptop, please choose SATA Operation from "RAID" to "AHCI" in the BIOS settings. For more information, you can check following link Unable to detect PCIe M.2 NVMe SSD – Dell XPS 13 (2016)
