Stuck in Linux

A few days ago while using Windows 10 I duel booted with Linux Mint. Install was good and am using it. I now find I can't boot back into Windows. I have tried "boot repair' - did not work.

syg00 - Thank You!!! I just had a brain fart when I looked at what I was doing. I saw 'ECHO' but was thinking "umount". It is working like a charm. Will mark SOLVED.

Thanks Again!

Re: Would like "quick" unmounting of USB drives

syg00 - After running: "for i in /media/$USER/* ; do echo "$i" ; done" I get the same over 1 1/2 min. shutdown/reboot.

I assume that I'll have to run any script each time before rebooting?

Re: Would like "quick" unmounting of USB drives

Mute Ant - Thanks for the suggestions . . . .sadly they did nothing and maybe added a few seconds to the shutdown.
Thanks again.

syg00 - Thanks for the reply. It sounds like a script is what I need. Willing to try anything if it will give a fast shutdown. Do you know of one?

Thanks again
