Displaying Full Storage Capacity after removing Wndows 10 after a dual boot

I’m not able to access the available storage list. It only shows a partial section of the memory leaving out the former memory which had Windows 10 installed in it. I’m sending a screenshot just for clarification.
MY hard-disk contains 500GiB but it says only 135GiB left
Kindly help pls.the image shows the partitions and the notification about only showing 135GiB leaving out the rest of the memory

Ubuntu 20.04 Does Not Boot


Looks like this one just needs to have their GRUB re-written to MBR again. It’s not so hard. But given that I did something like this 8 years ago… The concept should still be the same. Steps of what I did to fix it here.

I originally had Ubuntu 18.04 installed on my dell xps 13 (2017). A couple days ago, I replaced it with Ubuntu 20.04 due to constant error messages. Until today, I was able to use it without any trouble.
However, I had to use Windows earlier today, and now when I was trying to boot Ubuntu back, I am unable to do so.

First error message

Unexpected return from initial read: Volume Corrupt buffersize 1000 Failed to load image EFIubuntugrubefi: Volume Corrupt start_image() returned Volume Corrupt

and then windows booted automatically.

In trying to resolve the issue,

  1. Tried reinstalling Ubuntu 20.04 using LiveUSB, but got the error saying the system doesn’t have EFI System Partition
  2. Consulted the forum https://ubuntu.forumming.com/question/5394/unexpected-return-from-initial-read-volume-corrupt.
    In running Boot Repair, I received an error message, sayin EFI System Partition is needed.
  3. Used GPart to try to tweak disk settings (changing the disk partition that holds Ubuntu File System from ext4 to fat32… I didn’t document this process very well)
  4. Followed a tutorial that used Windows command prompt and diskpart, creating an ESP.
  5. Reran Boot Repair (successfully this time)

However, now I encountered a GRUB error

“Minimal BASH like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.”

I’ve been looking up different solutions, but I am having trouble understanding them, and afraid I am messing my disk more and more.

Thank you in advance.

I upgraded from Ubuntu 19 to Ubuntu 20.04 yesterday and then on restart my Laptop (Alienware 17r4 , Nvidea GTX1070) freezez at “Loading initial Ramdisk”

i googled a lot and applied couple of workarounds but didnt help
– Adding nomodeset – Didnt help .
– Updated my Bios Firmware from Dell – Didnt help
– Updating grub2 – didnt help

The weird thing is that when i enable Secure Boot from Bios , it lets me Boot one time and then it does not let me boot upon restart . I again have disbale Secure boot , then when i boot i boot upto Login screen of Ubuntu but id does not let me pass through even after entering correct password and then when i enable secure boot it lets me boot Normally(very Slow)

i tried to Folloow : Ubuntu 18.04 fails to boot even in recovery mode (stuck on loading initial ram disk) on ASUS UX433FA
but i dont think the mentioned intel drivers are availaible for ubuntu 20.04

-i am using Nvidea Proprietary drivers (nvidea-driver-440)
