The /dev/sda is your disk. /dev/sda[number] are partitions. One of them is Windows loader, one is your C/, another are D:/ and E:/. I don't know what is additional one. Which is which you must check by yourself. I think you don't fully understand what do you should do, so there is simple instruction: Delete E:/ (I think it's empty) At the end of earned ...

Partial answer: When your system boots, it runs a boot loader which used to be started from the master boot record (MBR) on the first sector of the boot partition. Newer systems do the same sort of thing, but a bit more convoluted (UEFI) that I don't understand yet. The point is that the boot process decides what happens and which menu system - like grub to ...

I got things to work now. I think had screwed up the CMOS settings to the point where it the bios/UEIF settings were somehow conflicting. Resetting all the CMOS settings to factory defaults fixed the problem, and I have a computer again! Thanks to anyone that put any thought into my problem!

No you will not be able to achieve that as this would have to be programmed inside the boot loader before any one OS is started, so I don't think that's possible unless you're a BIOS programmer.

Lol, answering my own question. Well, the solution proved to be simple, yet tedious. Especially when apple makes their own HD name with a space. Who does that??? Anyway, solution as follows: 1) boot into recovery mode (for some reason still uses internet mode, but whatever) 2) cd to the directory where you have the installer located (probably cd /Volumes/...

It turns out that I was looking at the whole problem the wrong way. It didn't have anything to do with anything after the installation, but everything during the installation. After I had done many hours of research, I found a few people that said there was a bug in the installation process. There is a bug, but it's not what they thought it was. Think about ...

It looks like you have a UEFI based install First, enter your computer's SETUP (typically by pressing delete or F2 while the computer is booting). Within setup you usually have the option to rearrange or remove boot options. Once the boot option for grub has been removed, you can delete Grub's files from the EFI system partition, (you can assign it a drive ...

"Windows recovery environment (loader)" is the correct option to start your Windows 10 bootup. There is a way to change it to "Windows 10 Startup" or whatever name, but you do not need to do it. If your Windows 10 worked OK before installing Linux Mint, then it should work properly after picking that option after your dual-boot install.

What always worked for me is Rescatux which you can find here: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/rescatux/ Boot into Rescatux and select Automatic Repair (or worded similar). If Automatic Repair does not do the trick, select "Restore Grub" and select the Boot Device accordingly.

The problem with these answers is that they do not address the underlying problem - when Windows is installed, it scans all drives on the system and 'litters' qualifying drives with 'Recycle' folders and other Microsoft OS what-nots, that Grub then takes to be an existing M$ OS. Including the "GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true" line will prevent ALL other ...

snip it requires Intel Virtualization to be enabled OK, this is our goal. Enable VT-x. Settings for VT-x enable/disable usually appear in BIOS loader for Windows The is no BIOS loader for windows. A simplified start process works as follows: 1) Power gets turned on 2) Motherboard starts executing its firmware (e.g. the BIOS or EFI). 3) The ...

I found the solution: 1)Insert your USB without mounting. Use fdisk -l to find which device is it. Here we assume it's /dev/sdx. Run cgdisk /dev/sdx. Create two partitions: first one with size 100M and hex code EF00 and second one with all defaults (hex code 8300 and size the remaining size of the usb). You should now have 2 partitions /dev/sdx1 and /dev/...
