  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Duelboot Install on existing Debian/Windows10 duel boot

Howsit. I purchased a new system yesterday and attempted unsuccessfully to install Debian. The issue appeared to be the Nvidia drivers and hence why I want to now try PopOS. My concern is that I have now already created a new drive partition, disabled secure boot, changed the boot drive preference order in bios menu and the system now boots with Grub. I also believe PopOs doesn't use BIOS. So I am worried that if I just try and follow the duelboot instructions for PopOS without 'undoing' Debian it might not work. Any advice on how to proceed? I think that best might be to re-format the linux partition but I've read that grub might disappear if I do that and leave me unable to boot into anything.
I have a basic understanding of what all these things are but for the most part I'm just following tutorials.
Thanks!
