    I personally use UEFI with GPT partitioning for dual booting Linux (Xubuntu 16) and win 10 v1803.
    I disable secure boot only on Linux because of nvidia drivers.
    So its actually easy to disable secure boot on linux using mokutil
    Code:
    sudo mokutil --disable-validation
    type your input password and verify the same upon booting.
    Grub2 efi module can detect and install efi bootloader for dual booting Windows 10 and Linux.
    I don't see any difference between secure boot and insecure boot.
    Make sure you use GPT partition so that you can have unlimited partition instead of only 4 partitions on MBR.
