Dual booting Linux and Windows

Postby colyn » Fri Nov 30, 2012 11:42 pm

I was asked a question today and I am not sure of the answer. A co-worker who recently went to Linux Mint (I talked him into it) was wondering if the harddrive he removed with Windows installed would dual boot with the harddrive he installed Linux onto if both drives were installed onto the computer.


Code: Select all

do the trick??

Make sure the Linux HD is the first in the HDorder in the BIOS, because Mint would have been installed that way.

when you run

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub

the output should tell you if it found windows
Mint 18
