On my Acer laptop I have Windows 10 installed on
/dev/sda4 and the ESP partition is
As described in the Beginner's Guide I installed Arch Linux on a newly created partition
/dev/sda5 and swap
/dev/sda6 with the Windows 10 created ESP
As the bootloader I chose
systemd-boot which is recommended by the guide if the motherboard is UEFI (which it is).
I configured the
/boot/loader/loader.conf as follows:
timeout 10 default arch
I created an entry for
/boot/loader/entries/arch.conf as follows;
title Arch Linux linux /vmlinuz-linux initrd /initramfs-linux.img options root=/dev/sda5 rw
But after rebooting Windows 10 boots by default. I couldn't even see the bootloader menu. Also no option to select the Linux boot loader in the boot options. What am I doing wrong?
fastboot(Windows 10) and
secureboot (UEFI) are off.
In the question Windows 10 / Linux Dual Boot - Boot-loader Problems the OP uses GRUB for the bootloader. In my case I'm using
systemd-boot. And in my setup
fast startup is already disabled.
#efibootmgr -v returns all my boot options. It has the Linux boot manager in the list, but the boot order didn't specify anything about it. So, I manually edited the boot order by
# efibootmgr -o 1003,1001,2001. But, the problem is the same. The boot order is reverted back after an reboot.
