Dual boot problem (GNU Grub minimal)

Post by gezginrocker » Wed Sep 11, 2019 2:31 pm

I'm dual booting Windows & Mint. After installing Mint, I was getting the modern Mint Grub menu on boot. Then after a few reboots, it suddenly started showing this one:

If I type exit, the screen below comes up and then I can boot into Mint or Windows.

I used Boot Repair and afterwards it started showing normal Mint boot menu again, but this time I wasn't able to boot into Windows. So I removed Mint, deleted Efi entries and then reinstalled Mint, but I'm facing the same problem yet again.

What is causing this, and is there a way to fix it except using Boot Repair?

Also, Windows & Mint are on different hard drives. But according to Grub menu both Efi entries are on the SSD. Shouldn't Mint efi entry be on the 2nd hard drive?

Thanks

Once booted in your Mint installation, open a terminal and run:

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
When it's done, reboot your machine and see if you get a grub boot menu.

Hopefully this will resolve the issue.
I suppose that's one of the ironies of life, doing the wrong thing at the right moment -C.C.
