Both systems work well, but I still have to change BIOS's boot mode to UEFI manually if I want to boot Windows. This isn't a problem currently, but I am considering installing Solaris as well for compatibility with the machines at my current job. How can I get grub to recognize all systems installed and give me the option to boot from any system without having to manually change any BIOS settings every boot? Much thanks,

Mint works fine booting the kernel this way, except now the X server boots automatically on startup. With grub I had edited grub.conf to boot in text mode only, so that I could choose to start and stop Xwindows at my leisure. Is there a way I can configure rEFInd to allow the same? Thanks so much for all your help and your awesome software!
