    rEFInd is a tool to boot windows or Linux on an uefi computer; basically a rescue tool. keep them separate , So only use dd for the rEFInd img file to a usb all by itself .We can use it to get any os up including Windows if grub goes bad. So when you have done a dd of the rEFInd img file to a...

    makes more sense to do as wiz suggested. Delete /dev/sda5 on wards. But first to have rEFInd on a usb would help and one decent Live OS on a stick maybe Mint Cinnamon from which we can use gparted to clean up and consolidate

    if your willing to do a "dd" command with the knowledge if you got it wrong it would wipe your hard drive then you've got confidence and learning fast. you might as well put rEFInd on one of your usb sticks : https://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/getting.html shimmy down to usb flash drive image...

    well uefi is confusing but for instance secure boot can be off but its still uefi; from my understanding CSM is a choice of uefi. For instance in bios you can have fast boot or not; so its just selecting the bits you want and the way you want it. No i was thinking of Linux iso's that you can put...
