I'm a rookie when it comes to Linux and I'm using a PC in UEFI mode with a drive formatted as GPT with fast boot turned off in the BIOS.

The drive is a 1TB drive with 96.95GB unallocated at the end of the disk, after the three Windows 10 partitions (reserved, OS and EFI).

Previously I've tried Ubuntu and it had an "install alongside" option in the installer and that worked fine.

Is there a trick to installing POP!_OS 21.10 with manual partitioning since it has no install alongside option?

I'm trying:

Font Screenshot Technology Rectangle Software


(Note: p1, p2 and p3 are the Windows partitions).

Should the POP-BOOT partition have a specific flag?

The installer completes with and error and the log says errors related to being unable to write the bootloader.

Personally I never dual-boot when W10 or W11 is the primary OS. Instead I prefer to run my alternate OS as a VM.

When your primary OS auto updates, like W10 and W11 do, then there's always going to be the potential for startup problems, and with a VM you don't have all the fuss and bother of partitioning your drive.
