Re: Interesting grub 2 and rEFInd

Hi Laurent85 Thanks for your response. Yes, you can, and I did. The funny thing is that I changed the boot order to boot off the Windows part of it, rebooted and it came up with rEFInd. But, I then rebooted it again and up came that old grub 2 listing. Oh well. I guess Will have to live with it. Jim

Interesting grub 2 and rEFInd

Good morning. I installed a new Linux mint 19 last week and it is working well. I had been using rEFInd as a boot manager so I installed it again on the new install. So I reboot and I get the standard grub 2 menu. No rEFInd to be found. I have a dual boot, with Windows 10 on /dev/sda1 and my Linux M...

Re: Upgrade from 18.3 to 19 cannot get to desktop

Hi all

Don't know what caused it, but I ended up installing from scratch. All seems to be working fine now. I saw looks and no responses. Has this been reported before and I just missed it in my search? Thanks.

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi everyone

Thanks so much for your help. I installed rEFInd, changed the bios to UEFI and everything is working. A really great boot manager, which works very well. Thanks again.

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi kc1di I got both refind (the deb file) and supergrub2 (the iso). I don't need to use Windows if I can do the job in Mint. I looked at the instructions and I don't really know what to do. I will take a look at them again. It just seems like a lot to do just to change two parameters that were chang...

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi all I created a /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/ and copied the grub.cfg file to there. I also rebooted and changed the mode from legacy to UEFI. For boot all it gave me was the Windows boot manager and a couple of network options. Now if I could only find a way to add the grub boot manager to the list and ...

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi trytip.

Thanks for your response. I do remember something about that. I will be rebooting in a little while and will try re-enabling secure boot. I think I remember that when that was done, it booted right into Windows. I will get back as soon as I get it back up.

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi Michael Thanks for your response. I remember something about that from the last time we were discussing this. Is there any way that I can change this without a reinstall? Before the Windows update, it worked very well, bringing me directly into Linux. I don't need a pop-up screen asking me which ...

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi fabien85.

Thanks for your response. Not very much, but here it is

jimmmac1@jimmmac1-Inspiron-3650 ~ $ cat /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/grub.cfg
cat: /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/grub.cfg: No such file or directory
jimmmac1@jimmmac1-Inspiron-3650 ~ $

Oh well.

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi kc1di.

Definitely grub. I have to press f12 and choose the Windows bootloader to get into Windows 10. I rarely use Windows 10. But somehow a 'developers update' changed something and I can't seem to find out what or how to change it back. Thanks.

Re: Let's try this one again.

Hi kc1di

Thanks for your response. I can boot the computer, by changing the boot and prefix, then insmod normal and normal. I am just looking for the thing to change so that it boot by itself without my intervention every time.

Re: Dual Boot Problems since Windows 10 Updates

Hi Laurent85 Thanks for your response. I am downloading the iso now. Then I will try what is in your post. Question : I would rather not reinstall, so this won't mess up my current install by installing over my current LM? I do have everything pretty well backed up, but you never know. Thanks. Jim
