I bought a Lenovo G40 and it came with Windows 10 uses UEFI to boot. I am trying to install Linux Mint on an empty partition in order to dual boot. At first I had succeeded. However, after an update, it boots directly into Windows.
I tried reinstalling Linux Mint, but no luck (I get an error at the end of the installation saying that the installation won't boot).
I tried disabling Secure Boot and Fast Startup and then reinstalling Linux Mint. Same thing.
I tried using the Live CD to manually add a "boot" flag to the partition which has the Linux installation. Didn't work as well.
I tried using boot repair, but ended up with this error and no luck.
I read that to properly install Linux in this environment you have to boot the Live CD into EFI mode, and I think this is what I couldn't do. There is no UFI mode boot when I insert the Live CD, and there isn't an option to add this in the BIOS (at least I didn't find it). There following two shots of my BIOS show what appears when I have Legacy mode on and off (both have the same result).
Any ideas? Any way that I can boot both in Linux and Windows I'm happy (even if I have to make the dual boot through Windows Boot loader).
