I have tried multiple solutions I found online to solve this. I installed Ubuntu 20.04 LTS alongside Windows 10 and upon reset after successful installation, windows loads automatically.
Ubuntu does not show up in the boot order when trying to configure the UEFI.
One of the solutions I tried was using boot repair, which gave me the following logs (second one after reinstalling and failing again):
The steps in this thread (How to get GRUB to be the default bootloader instead of Windows Boot Manager on a UEFI laptop?) did not help.
I was using the following guide for the installation: ( https://itsfoss.com/install-ubuntu-1404-dual-boot-mode-windows-8-81-uefi/ ) so the instructions vary slightly but many milestones were the same. At step 6 I do not have grub showing up or do not know how to access it. Also I see no proper option to point to a specific efi file.
Would really appreciate some guidance.
EDIT: what worked out for me:
- uninstalled ubuntu by deleting partitions through Windows Disk Manager
- instead of using the windows Advanced Restart to boot on Live USB for installation, I pressed esc during startup and forced boot on the Live USB (I had 2 options, chose UEFI one)
- live ubuntu interface was different, but I just went for installing it alongside windows without creating the partitions manually.
- upon completion and restart, grub worked.
