I am trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 dual boot with windows 10

I burned the iso file on DVD

I started to boot from the DVD but I see a quick message that something is not found. I can't read the message because of its speed.

While the installation happened :

copying files...

installing succeed.

I then restarted the computer and waited for the GRUB menu to appear, but Windows 10 booted instead.

I tried selecting Try Ubuntu without installing, and using mount and boot-repair, but nothing happened.

  • Is it one of those HP BIOSes that boot straight to Windows if it's listed in the UEFI boot partition? – Asdf Apr 28 '18 at 14:46
  • Can you boot grub if you select it directly (hit some key: function, esc,del,...(varies by machine) at power up and get the select boot device/os. Select grub. What happens? – ubfan1 Apr 28 '18 at 15:14

Run this on Windows 10's cmd.exe as Administrator:

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi

That one line fixed my problem, hope this helps.
