After installing Linux Mint 17.3 alongside Windows 10, I lost the ability to boot into Windows. Here is my partition table:
- /dev/sda2 is the Windows 10 C: partition (that is mounted for some reason)
- My linux partitions are all logical, part of the /dev/sda1 extended partition
When I boot the machine, grub only shows the Linux boot, so I can't boot into Windows.
What I've tried:
- I booted into the Linux Live USB, install Boot Repair and ran the Recommended option.
- I Ran the advanced option of Boot Repair, setting the boot partition to Windows. Didn't change anything.
I tried booting in Linux and running
sudo update-grub. Got the following result:
Generating grub configuration file ... Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-32-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.19.0-32-generic Found memtest86+ image: /memtest86+.elf Found memtest86+ image: /memtest86+.bin No volume groups found done
Booted into a Windows 8 Recovery Disk (I don't have the Windows 10 one), and ran
bootrec.exe /fixmbrin the Command Line. As a result, I got the BOOTMGR is missing message.
I managed to get Linux booting again from the Linux Live USB's Boot Repair tool.
Given the partition table above, how can I get Grub to show Linux AND Windows 10 to show, so I can boot into Windows as well?
