Dual Booting and Configuring Linux

Now, we must restart the PC (Figure 185). When we do, a dual boot screen will appear (Figure 186). Use the arrow keys to select “Linux” as the operating system you want to run and hit “Enter,” so that Linux will have a chance to complete its installation.

Click “Next.”
