I have two GPT SSDs, from which I intend dual boot Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.10. Windows is installed first:
- 970 Pro(NVME) with Windows 10
- MX500(SATA) where I want to install Ubuntu 18.10
When installing Ubuntu, I choose to customise my install, and create 3 partitions on the MX500 drive:
- sda1 650 MB EFI partition
- sda2 root partition
- sda3 swap partition
I select dev/sda1 as "Device for boot loader installation"
After the install is completed, I find that the boot loader was installed on the EFI partition created by the Windows installation and the EFI partition I created is empty.
I attempted the process again, with a Win10 install on the NVME drive followed by Ubuntu 18.10, and got the same behaviour. Is this a bug, or a limitation with NVME drives needing the host both bootloaders?
SecureBoot is disabled in case it matters.
