I wanted to dual boot with windows 10 for gaming so I installed it on a certain partition. Now my grub won’t load on startup so I can’t connect to antergos.
I know it’s supposed to be restorable through Antergos live, can anyone tell me how, or refer a guide here please? Thanks ahead
Installed windows - lost grub
There is something called grub rescue, havent used it, I think is an app to create a bootable pen drive in order to restore grub, but Im not sure of that, the only thing Im sure is that installing windows on a system with grub destroys grub, ALWAYS, for dual boot is always recommended to install first windows, if not you should be ready for this, but this matter is not as known as it should be, look in google for grub rescue and good luck!! (The other choice is reinstall antergos)
@Lancro many thanks to you.
I managed to work it out using the following (awesome) guide http://askubuntu.com/questions/88384/how-can-i-repair-grub-how-to-get-ubuntu-back-after-installing-windows
Only had to use the actual grub commands instead of ubuntu’s shortened ones
You re probably refering to the “Boot-Repair-Disk”. According to its description, it :
- runs automatically Boot-Repair rescue tool at start-up
- also contains the OS-Uninstaller and Boot-Info tools.
- repairs recent (UEFI) computers as well as old PCs
I have usied it in Ubuntu long ago and it just worked.
Probably, I heard of this tool years ago, it may have changed its name
