For instance, with the Fedora or Redhat installer disk, you should type linux rescue at the boot prompt to enter rescue mode. Now when I go to disk management and right click to attempt shrink volume all I am offered is a default value of 4822 MB which is 4.7 GB when 20GB click for more info But this is more complex.Virtualbox is IMO crap.

So all I have to do is copy and paste the above in to my grub file and I can dual boot my system? Now I feel a lot better about everything.

I want to dual boot Windows 10 with Ubuntu 14.04.0 or 16.04. How this can be done depends on the specific flavor of Linux that you are using. That's going to take a bunch of effort to put things back the way they were but things are so lousy now I've got to do something.
