    Two things want to verify before purchasing this module.
    1. Can we use it for Windows Installation as well as Ubuntu?
    2. Does it conflicts with any other addons installed already on system?

      Hello Umar,

      As per your query-
      1. Can we use it for Windows Installation as well as Ubuntu? >> Yes will work in both.
      2. Does it conflicts with any other add-ons installed already on system? >> If those add-ons are of any third party then we cannot commit that will work with our addon or not as we haven’t tested their functionality.
