    Win10 and linux side by side but can't launch win10


    Hi, just new to linux. I've installed mint on a win10 laptop and selected the option to keep win10 on mint install.

    However i cant no longer launch win10 as i always log to mint setup menu and there's no option to launch mint or win10.

    Win10 partition still there but...how can i launch win10 and choose to launch one or another?

    Dual booting is not as easy as it used to be. Mostly UEFI is in use now, and depending on how you set the install (legacy using /dev/sda etc. or UEFI) depends on what you may be able to boot. I have moved to running Windows as a VM, migrating the install and license from the original machine. There's no easy approach, just lots of googling and then trial and error for your particular install. But go check out the UEFI/legacy boot options in BIOS and check how you are doing the Linux install as a result.

    Go well.

    Why to run windows as a VM when you can run linux as a VM ans avoid all the license issues?

    except for the fact there ARE no 'license issues". win10 came on it, and it was LICENSED. i can reinstall windows 100 times on that machine with that one license, because i already own it.

    and not only was this thread closed for 6 mons before you reopened it, but you posted crap in it for no reason. if your going to post at least know what your talking about
