Dual Booting Windows 10 Probelm

Post by Nick dell » Wed Jun 20, 2018 3:52 am

Hi,
I have a Dell Precision M3800. I dual boot Linux Mint and Windows 10. I've been trying to boot windows using Legacy boot option and whenever I select the Windows Loader, Windows will get stuck on this loading screen that blinks every 5 seconds. I have my secure boot off. The Ufei Boot option says that it can't find my hard drive (it says the same thing weather secure boot is on or off). Also I've tried running Windows 10 from a USB but the USB won't even show up in the boot options. The USB had the windows 10 ISO written onto it (using the Linux Mint USB Image Writer). I also tried changing the boot sequence but that didn't work.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

I can try to provide screenshots or videos if you need them.

If you can boot into LM, do a sudo update-grub. Reboot.

You might want to try

Code: Select all

sudo os-prober
then

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
You can do this from a live boot too.
