    WSL will probably work for this after the next big feature update, since WSL2 will be coming out, with a full, native Linux kernel.

    Nvm, @malekmaroc7 here's my tutorial.

    1. Go and download Rufus
    2. Go and download the Ubuntu Image
    3. Plug in you USB drive
    4. Open Rufus.
    5. Put Device as your usb drive, and boot selection to the ubuntu image that we dowloaded
    6. Press start, and once its done, turn off your computer.
    You have Ubuntu on your usb, BUT to boot...
    1.While your usb is plugged in, turn on your computer.
    2. Usually, there are a bunch of key combos that you can do before OS starts, find the one called Boot options (IF YOU DONT HAVE THE OPTION GOOGLE "How to boot from usb")
    3.Select boot from usb or removable drive.

    You should now be in Ubuntu. Press "try ubuntu" so that you can fully use ubuntu without it touching windows 10.

    Done.

    @PipeWarp
    So,.. I installed Ubuntu on my USB and it boots almost perfectly (sometimes it hangs that I need to restart it again), but there is a small problem: Ubuntu doesn't find any Wireless Networks (seems that it doesn't recognize the WiFi module). Do you have a solution?

    Option A: Google is your friend, google your problems/make a post on askbuntu.com to fix it.

    Option B: Install Ubuntu alongside Win10

    You can install Ubuntu alongside windows in the installer BUT apparently that might not work in the installer
    See this guide for reference and what to do
    In case something goes wrong, grab another USB drive and download this. Run it, it will detect the drive, and install the windows 10 media creation tool.
    ' Its safe, but if you in any doubt, use the "Something else option" on the installer ' - Person who replied to the thread linked.
    If your computer somehow messes up, i take no responsibility. In the event that it does:
    Plug in the other usb that i mentioned (the one with the windows tool) and when presented with the install option, press in the corner "repair" "troubleshoot" or something like that.
    You can use options like Pc wont start and it will scan the HDD and fix it. If it says nothing found, try restarting it, it may have already got it as this has happened with me before.

    If all else fails, reinstall windows 10
    Note: If you’ve already successful activated Windows 10 on the PC, including if you upgraded by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer you won't need to enter a Windows 10 product key. You can skip the product key page by selecting the Skip button. Your PC will automatically activate later.
    (from this forum in the comments)



    Good Luck!

    Anyone know if this works with the TPLink TL-WN725N dongle? I've tried setting up the hotspot on ubuntu, but when trying to start the hotspot, it gives back a connection failure after 30 seconds. Does anyone have experience with the same dongle or could anyone tell me if it is maybe incompatible for setting up a hotspot?

    Honestly, I have no idea. You did all of the steps correctly?

    Yeah, only unusual thing I do is have Ubuntu installed in dual-boot alongside Windows 10, although they are on seperate hard drives. I'm starting to think maybe the dongle doesn't support "broadcast mode", as you described in your post?

    Are you trying to use the dongle for only broadcast mode? Or are you using it to connect to WiFi as well?

    I have an ethernet connection, so when I try to start the hotspot, it should use that. The WiFi gets disabled automatically. Outside of that I don't use WiFi anyways. I've also attached a video showing the error message.

    Edit: I just realized I filmed it in canvas mode, sorry lol

    This is natively supported on Windows 10 now without additional software, BUT you can only create a WPA2 hotspot so for our purposes of connecting legacy hardware that doesn't support that protocol, it's still kind of useless. When configured, it looks something like this in your Windows 10 settings app.

    Well, I already know that. I solved the issue by buying a cheap Wi-Fi router
    Thanks for the information!
