Hi everyone,

So my laptops SSD got damaged and it was set as the boot device for windows 10 while the HDD (Perfectly Okay) boots into Ubuntu 20. I can currently boot into Ubuntu 20 or the BIOS only and I am new to Linux Distros. Also while installing Ubuntu I had to switch off Bitlocker and switch from RAID to AHCI.

After swapping out the SSD with a new one (the same as the previous one as it is covered in my warranty) I need to install Windows 10 again. Will I face any problems as the laptop is dual booted and what is the procedure to reinstall Windows 10 on dual boot laptops correctly?

Dell support isn't trained on dual boot so they won't reinstall Windows 10 on my laptop. They have provided me with a boot-able pen drive for windows 10

Thanks for the help
