Once this is done, reboot, and with the same proceedure, launch your CentOS DVD installer via the BIOS, explicitly making sure to launch the UEFI choice for the DVD-SATA-drive.

Dual booting Windows and Linux using UEFI |

I bought a new laptop. I wanted to dual boot Windows 10 and linux although it is unsupported. I installed CentOS 7 which worked but didn’t allow me to boot into Windows The RHEL installation seemed to go well. I chose default to get automatic partitioning and entered other values as required. It seemed to install but upon boot I don’t get a grub menu offering a choice of linux or win It shows 5 lines saying that it has found everything but still no grub menu upon reboot.

I’m lost. Would a reinstall of RHEL work? Any help would be appreciated. From what I recall in the times in the distant past when I did dual boot, that I did install windows first as you did, then Linux. I’ll see if I can come up with any more, but hopefully something in that other discussion might help. What you recall is still valid, first install Windows and then a Linux system. Windows tends to override the EFI partition, which means that Linux systems can not boot any more, because all files and folders get deleted.

One person said they had to remake the config. Examine the video itself, but also read the replies. I see you’ve done some of this, but examine it and let us know how it goes.. Hinton, Thank you so much for the youtube videos both are very helpful but for me the second was the best RJ is right, you most probably will find the solution in the other thread. Among the instructions there is what is important in your case – you said : “I chose default to get automatic partitioning In both cases select manual custom partitioning, disable Secure Boot, and also disable Fast startup and Hibernation in Windows.

Now everything should work as expected. Thanks for all the help. After many reloading attempts I have found some things. Although I chose defaults it did not overwrite the windows partition on the the hard disk. Still I created the partitions manually as suggested. There is an entry in Grub2 for Windows 10 which won’t work but at least I can access my linux system.

Why does the entry appear in the bios for windows bootloader and why can’t I access the grub menu after grub2-install or grub2-mkconfig? I can access both partitions now but changing partitions is a problem. I still need help. The reason why the machine boots directly to Windows is that in Windows most probably Fast startup and Hibernation is enabled default setting after fresh installation.

Disable Fast startup in system settings, disable Hibernation with powercfg -h off command prompt as administrator. Shutdown the machine completely don’t reboot.

In case there are wrong entries in the boot menu options, you can check this with sudo efibootmgr -v. Anyone landing here in , now that you ought to use the most current version of either RHEL 7.
