    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    Mike, yeah, i have another laptop and it does this as well, no issues from that standpoint it just boots right into grub and I can select my OS i want to boot to. I don't know, until i ran into this i didn't even know this issue was a thing. Oh well.

    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    Appreciate that, Unfortunately, i just can't resolve this issue. Even the alternative i found at a different site, it wouldn't allow me to copy the Ubuntu Efi File to replace the one in the Windows EFI folder.. I'm pretty much at a loss. I think i'm just gonna give up and deal with having to...

    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    Stan, maybe you can help me here, you stated (you installed GRUB on the Linux Drive and not the windows Drive - IS that it? Because I see a 512MB partition on the Linux drive that's labeled EFI and of course i see the EFI partition on the Windows Disk. Was the Linux install supposed to put this...

    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    Stan, Along those lines, I just found this on a superuser thread... Now this is discussing an issue a guy had with dual booting Win8 and Ubuntu on an HP Laptop: "This issue seems built into the HP UEFI/BIOS - it will only accept a /Microsoft folder for boot. Having had this issue on a HP...

    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    Yes, I was super hopeful because that was something i hadn't tried. still no joy though :/ I'm hoping that your comment "And sometimes that is the only way. Different computers behave differently sometimes. At least this way will work, if nothing else." isn't the case, but that was my fear...

    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    Stan, Thank you for your reply. This is actually one of the troubleshooting steps I found along the way.

    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    kc1di - Thanks for responding. As to your question: Why not let the machine boot to linux and use the linux grub boot loader? - A: I don't understand how I would do this, the machine automatically boots into windows and does not see Ubuntu as an option to boot. It doesn't use Grub, i'd love...

    Cannot get Linux OS to show as an option to boot in Dual Boot Laptop

    I have encountered a scenario I simply cannot find a solution for. I have created a dual boot laptop previously. It worked flawlessly and seamlessly. I simply loaded Win10 on my primary drive. installed a second drive in my laptop, installed Ubuntu and bam. It gives me the option to select...
