Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

SVX biker I have considered trying another distro just to see if it will install. I may end up doing that at some point. But I'm really set on MX right now and will do all in my power to get it installed. I'm grateful for all the support from the forum. Nobody's given up on me yet and I won't give u...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

Thanks Fehlix. It is a bit of a puzzle since when I look at the individual devices, they say they are all Non-Raid physical disks which is confirmed when I click on each drive. But as you note, it looks like something has RAID from the response of that one command query. When I go to a completely di...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

One further comment. I continued to wander around BIOS and came across "Configure SATA as". After that it says [Intel(R) RST with Intel (R) Optane] When I click on Configure SATA as, I have 2 choices AHCI or [Intel(R) RST with Intel (R) Optane] The Intel option is currently selected. In the help mes...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

Good Morning to all. I have downloaded a windows recovery file and created a recovery USB. I went into BIOS to look at this RAID. Under "Devices" Tab, I come to Intel Rapid Storage Technology. In that setting is NON-RAID Physical disks. Then I have 3 choices: SATA 0.0 Samsung 238 Gig drive SATA 0.1 ...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

I'm not sure what exactly a GRUB boot menu is since this is my first attempt at a dual boot computer. I am expecting when I power the computer up to see some screen that appears that will allow me to choose between windows and Linux. I do not have that nor have I ever seen that here. When I powered ...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

OK, so let me update everybody. This is a brand new computer right out of the box. I simply wanted to dual boot windows 10 with MX Linux. As I wrote in my last message to fehlix, I've outlined the simple installation steps I took. However, fehlix provided a clue. When I was installing, I used Gparte...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

No conversion at all, brand spanking new computer out of the box. Went to disk management in windows- shrink volume- system calculated maximum I could shrink, I chose to shrink less than the system calculated- told the system to shrink. Ended up with unallocated space of 90 Gig roughly. Went to MX18...

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

fehlix.. I'm pretty certain this was the first thing I tried. Your explanation made complete sense. Unfortunately, I don't believe it was successful. It says it was completed but here is what was in the message box when I ran the boot repair. It's the same message I get every time I run boot repair....

Re: Windows 10 Dual Boot but MX Linux doesn't show up

svx biker,,, you are correct that windows is ahead of MX18. asqwerth also suggested changing the boot order and you can read my response to him. But essentially, I was able to change the boot order with the command he suggested which essentially did the same as your suggestion and it changed in the ...
