    Boot order and bootloader editing

    Good idea opening my box but... I would have to remove the Graphics Card to get to main M.2, pull it, put back grahics card, boot and then repeat the process putting things back the way they were (yawn), but ill get to it soon.

    Boot order and bootloader editing

    So I looked into efibootmgr. Installed it to Mint ( which shows up in my Bios boot options as Ubuntu TWICE ) and Thanx to a "linuxbabe" link in google search I also learned how to change the boot order. That was quite interesting. Now it boots directly to Windows and my "F11" will give me the...

    Two separate drives, 1 linux second drive, 1st drive Windows 10

    A fun find. After doing a fresh install of Win 10 on another drive I was able to go into the bad drive and retrieve all my stuff. I then did a long format of that drive and cloned the current drive back to my original drive. I then installed Mint on the same drive w windows (this I really like)...

    Two separate drives, 1 linux second drive, 1st drive Windows 10

    I almost wasnt going to come mention this here but, hey, sometimes you learn things the hard way. I used Hasleo EasyUefi to have a look at all my drives while in win 10. My bios boot options were showing me 2 debian drives, 1 windows boot manager Rocket Q (my 1TB 4.0 :cool: ) and 1 Ubuntu Rocket...

    Two separate drives, 1 linux second drive, 1st drive Windows 10

    This PC has a 1TB drive running windows 10 pro w a Radeon RX 580 and has no graphics issues. It has a second drive w Debian installed. I decided to format the drive and start over thinking well , maybe the ISO download was corrupt in some way (not likely). I reformatted my USB and set it up as...

I installed Fedora as an ISO on a thumb drive w Rufus and then fixed the boot order to run the usb stick first. Managed to figure out how to install on my second dr (m.2 3.0 500GB). Now...
