hello, i'm new in Linux so
first i install Ubuntu 1710 from USB Flash Drive every thing was perfect
the problem is when i shutdown and restart my Laptop (hp pavilion 15 notebook) it directly run windows 10 (booting menu) appear
so in boot options
secure boot disable
legacy boot disable some times makes it enable But No Effect
so
i rerun the USB flash and chose (try Ubuntu) in terminal window write this code
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
it say Done
But when i restart it directly run windows 10 (No choice OS menu) appear again
What shall i do? I can't get to Ubuntu OS

Hi @Yara, and welcome! There are probably a few ways to fix this, but strangely enough, one of the easiest is from Windows.

First, go back into your setup and put it back in UEFI mode if you installed Ubuntu that way.

Next, let's try to make sure Ubuntu actually does boot in UEFI. When starting the computer, before Windows starts... probably at the HP logo splash screen... you see some F-key options. This is how you probably get into Setup too, but this time look for Boot Menu or Boot Options, and pick that. I'm on my phone and working from memory, so this part is a little fuzzy.... but you can navigate around in the Boot Menu... you're looking for <ubuntu>. You may need to select the double dots (..) to go up a level. Go into <ubuntu> and select grubx64.efi and it should boot up.

If it doesn't boot or you can't find <ubuntu>, then don't do this next step. But if it boots okay, then this should make grub boot first for you... follow the directions carefully here: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/fo...rub-menu-in-windows-uefi-and-linux-dual-boot/

Be sure you run the Windows command prompt as Administrator or it won't work. Be sure to very carefully type the command, all on one line, paying close attention to spaces and the difference between \ and / characters, and also the squiggly braces { }.

I don't remember if there is any response to the command, but as long as no errors, you should be able to reboot now and get grub first.

Cheers

Hi @atanere ,Thanks for your help.
unfortunately when i boot from USB Flash found this list
GNU GRUB Version 2.2~beta3-ubuntu7 (in it 4 options)
Try Ubuntu
install Ubuntu
OEM install (for Manufacturers )
Check disc for defects

so tried all but can't found ( grubx64.efi )But when hit esc found this
GNU GRUB Version 2.2~beta3-ubuntu7
Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.for the first word,TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.
grub>


But without USB Flash when restart laptop and hit f9 contentiously it toke me to Boot management list in it 3 options
os.... (when chose it & hit enter it lunch win10)
EFI
notebook hard drive (when chose it & hit enter it lunch Ubuntu)

on Ubuntu first update software then in terminal wrote this code

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair && sudo apt-get update
hit enter
then wrote my password hit enter
then write this code
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
hit enter
then chose repair

But it shows this error
The current session is in Legacy mode. Please reboot the computer, and use this software in an EFI session. This will enable this feature. For example, use a live-USB of Boot-Repair-Disk-64bit (www.sourceforge.net/p/boot-repair-cd), after making sure your BIOS is set up to boot USB in EFI mode.


Also opened windows10 in
administrator Command Prompt copy and paste this code
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi
and hit enter
it say successful But nothing happened

What shall do i?

Hi @Yara. If I'm reading everything right, you have installed Ubuntu to the hard drive, so you shouldn't need the USB to fix this problem (but keep it around in case you want to re-install completely).

And if I'm still reading everything right, you are able to boot Ubuntu from the hard drive using F9 to get you to the Boot Menu. That's good!

But the Boot Repair program does not always work, and it seems that it's not working for you. But it is telling you to do the same thing that I told you earlier: Go into your Setup (UEFI Settings) and change it back to UEFI mode instead of Legacy Mode. Get into the Setup by using another F-key like you used the F9 for Boot Menu, but it will be a different key.... maybe F10 or F12. After you change it back to UEFI mode, you must SAVE the settings when you exit the Setup.

After you have changed it back to UEFI mode, then reboot back into Windows 10 and follow the instructions again using the Administrator Command Prompt, just like you did before. It told you it was successful, so I'm confident that you're getting this step.... but I think it failed because you are still in Legacy Mode.

If you get through these steps correctly, then the next time you reboot after using the Adminstrator Command Prompt in Windows, I think it will boot up to the GRUB screen, and from there into Ubuntu.

Good luck!

Hello @atanere , Thanks indeed for your support :)

I Disable Legacy Mode and clear Bois history and save it Then went to administrator Command Prompt in Win10 and retype the code Then restart the laptop But nothing happened.

so i re-download Ubuntu.iso file re-make USB bootable and format HD and install Ubuntu again Everything was OK no error message But again it runs win10 automatically But the new thing is
when restart laptop and hit f9 contentiously it toke me to Boot manager list to choose Ubuntu in 2nd and 3rd choices then the grub menu appears
o_O to chose Ubuntu again but now in 1st choice.All these steps to lunch Ubuntu
is the problem in my lap top?

Hi @Yara! Well, it is difficult to be sure what is going on because we can't see what you see. It sounds like you have now installed a 2nd copy of Ubuntu to your hard drive. I will have to think about how to tell you to remove one of them, but please do not use the USB to install any more copies.

I am confused about where you said that you, "cleared BIOS history".... there is no "history" in BIOS to clear!

It may be easier to have you do a "System Recovery" of Windows 10 and start everything over from scratch. But this is a drastic step and it will erase everything in your computer and then re-install Windows. Before you do this, you would need to save everything in Windows that is important (to a USB, or DVD, or external hard drive). Anything that is not saved would be deleted with a System Recovery. Don't do this yet, but I want you to start thinking about it as one way to get out of this jam.

If you ultimately go forward with a System Recovery, I would also recommend that you download the Long Term Support (LTS) version of Ubuntu, which is version 16.04.3, instead of the version 17.10 that you have already installed. The reason is that Ubuntu support for 17.10 will end in July 2018, only about 7 months from now. When support ends, you will no longer be able to get updates and you will need to replace 17.10 at that time if you keep using it. The 16.04.3 LTS version will be supported until April of 2021.... so you have much more time that it will keep working for you once you get it installed properly.

I think your laptop is okay... but I think you've messed up your installation steps, and especially if you now have 2 copies of Ubuntu installed. And I'm afraid that it may get messed up worse before it gets better, which is why I suggested that it may be better to start over from scratch.

Since we can't see your BIOS/UEFI settings (unless maybe you upload a photo).... I still think some of the trouble could still be there.

Let me try to get this clearly.... can you boot Ubuntu now using the F9 boot menu options? I want to be sure that Ubuntu is actually booting and running for you, even though that is a hard way to make it work.

Really not sure about that, Stan. And you & I know we seldom disagree.

( @Yara ) If you are not too shy, can you let us know if you are "he" or "she"? Just so I don't have to print he/she when referring to you. No pressure, your choice?

Given Yara has a working situation of sorts, I would be more inclined to follow some or all of what follows (the order might need tweaking, I am brainstorming and enjoying a beer, a deadly combination, lol):

  1. Stick, for now with the 17.10 - I am guessing it is the new GNOME, but could be a MATE, do you know, Yara? If GNOME, then going back to 16.04, whilst supported for years to come, would take the OP (original poster, that's you, Yara) back to a Unity desktop. Confusing? If MATE, perhaps no drama. There'll be a new Ubuntu out in April, usually around 20th, and Yara can make more educated choices then.
  2. Teach Yara to install GParted (can't remember for sure, but think it is still removed with the 17.10 install, can check). Yara can then
  3. Join an image hosting site (if not already a member of one) such as Photobucket, Imgur (I use Imgur) TinyPic &c, whereby Yara can take a screenshot using eg GNOME Screenshot of Yara's partition structure, and then we can better advise Yara
  4. How to use GParted to blow away the unnecessary Ubuntu and redeem the space
These ideas obviously can do with some fine-tuning, but let me know if you find a flaw big enough to drive a Mack truck through, won't you, Stan?

Both of you (or others) let me know your thoughts.

Cheers

You are ALWAYS welcome to jump in, Wizard! I know that sometimes "I fail to see the forest for the trees," as the saying goes... and there are always two (or more) ways to approach or fix computer issues. I keep learning here too, and I try to keep looking for easier methods or tools... which brings me to this tool. I only recently spotted it while researching @Yara's problem, and it seems it might be useful to remove the secondary Ubuntu (if indeed a second installation is found).

In post #3, it seems that @Yara is booting Ubuntu using the F9 boot menu. If so, from that description, it sounds like Ubuntu was installed in UEFI (but still not sure because the boot menu steps were not fully described). If Ubuntu was, in fact, installed in UEFI, then the Windows 10 command line instruction should have brought GRUB back to the primary boot loader.... ah, except that the Secure Boot setting may also be an issue. Some experimenting with my laptop and Linux Mint shows me that with Secure Boot enabled (and Legacy disabled) that the grubx64.efi file described in the Windows 10 command sequence will not boot my laptop from my own boot menu (boot image does not authenticate error... a Secure Boot issue)... I have to navigate to shimx64.efi instead, and then Mint will boot up properly.

So, my next thoughts on this was for @Yara to again boot into Windows 10 and follow the Administrator Command Prompt instructions, but to use shimx64.efi instead... then reboot and see if GRUB loads first, instead of booting straight into Windows 10.

But I am certainly open to other avenues of approaching this problem! :confused::D

Thank you for tolerating my foibles, good friend, and now I see where you are going I am right back behind you :D. My bad, too, I had forgotten that Ubuntu 16.or 'Xenial Xerus' had a GNOME edition, so that makes one of my concerns a non-sequitur. :oops: The LTS version then, is good.

@Yara my apologies if I have confused ... we have different methodologies but often arrive at the same answers :p

Cheers all

BTW that os-uninstaller looks interesting, Stan. I see it is from Yann, who does Boot Repair.;)

No sir... no foibles... no worries. We work very well together, and it's always a pleasure for me. Maybe the OP's have to filter us a little bit, but we are really trying to sort things to help them, and I think that comes across too. :cool::D

So, @Yara, before you try the shimx64.efi file I mentioned above... let's try to go through through your F9 boot menu step by step, as that should indicate if you need the shim or not. The description below is from my laptop.... see if yours follows it exactly, or please note any difference (or list your own steps one by one).

1. Use F9 to get to your boot menu

2. Choose "Boot from EFI File" (ignoring the "OS" option that launches Windows 10)

3. For me, there is only one option next... very long highlighted text, that starts with NO VOLUME LABEL

4. Choose <EFI>

5. Choose <ubuntu>

6. Next are many .efi files to pick from. First choose grubx64.efi and see if GRUB starts and lets you run Ubuntu. If GRUB does not start, repeat all of these steps and choose shimx64.efi instead, and see if GRUB starts and lets you run Ubuntu.

OK, please give us a detailed report on what happens as you step through this procedure, and especially note anything that is different or varies from what I show here. Thanks!

//then write your password//
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair

boot repair show me this message

In case you still experience boot problem, indicate this URL to:
[email protected]

You can now reboot your computer.
Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda2/EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi file!

If your computer reboots directly into Windows, try to change the boot order in your BIOS.
If your BIOS does not allow to change the boot order, change the default boot entry of the Windows bootloader.
For example you can boot into Windows, then type the following command in an admin command prompt:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi}


so i went to win10 again and run this code bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi

it show successful but nothing happened (when restart my laptop it directly lunch win10 If i want to lunch Ubuntu i should hit f9 as shown above)

@wizardfromoz Thanks for your help and Sorry I can't understand much of what you say in your first comment Sorry i'm new i Linux so i don't know what you ask me to do .Thanks for my birthday greetings :)

Helo @atanere i can't delete win10 because i don't have "Installing CD for it " also my brother work on it.I knows Linux throw Internet so i'm the only one want to use it for now.So noway for me to delete win10.

Ok i'll download the Long Term Support (LTS) version of Ubuntu, which is version 16.04.3 and install it But i afraid if i did that in Boot Manager it shows me 3 Ubuntu instead of two it shows me now

Hi @Yara... and thank you for the excellent report on whats going on with your UEFI settings. I think that this will be fixed with two steps... and then it will boot the the GRUB menu (so you can choose Linux or Windows from there).

Step 1. As you show in the quote above, you have Secure Support disabled. Go into the settings and change Secure Support to enabled. Save the changes and exit the setup.

i went to win10 again and run this code bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi
Step 2. Repeat this step again in the Windows 10 Administrator Command Prompt.
Code:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi
Then restart from Windows and see if the GRUB menu is the one that starts up? Or does it still go straight into Windows?

No problem.... let's try to just keep Win 10 and the Ubuntu 17.10 you have now. If we can just get it all booting properly, there is no rush to get rid of 17.10 (probably wait until next April for the next new version will be best).

Sorry it still go straight into Windows :(
And in my best Homer voice... D'oh!

I have an HP laptop too, and I can see by your full description that our BIOS/UEFi is very similar. I'm going to go drown my sorrow in a couple of Duff beers first, and then put Windows 10 and Ubuntu 17.10 on mine to see if anything seems to stick out. I have had this laptop dual-boot with Windows 10 before, but probably with something other than Ubuntu. So, as strange as it sounds... I hope that I break it similar to yours! Then maybe I can spot what's going wrong.

Meanwhile, maybe that wonderful, magical Wizard will steer you better while I go scratch my head for a bit.

Thanks again for that very thorough report. For now, leave Secure Support enabled unless Wizard wants you to change it. Ubuntu should work with this setting enabled.

Cheers
