Problem: windows 10 won’t boot after installing Fedora on the unallocated disk space. Fedora boots just fine, grub shows up, but does not offer a windows boot option. Accessing BIOS boot menu yields only the following options:
There used to be a ‘Windows Boot Manager’ option. Two of them, in fact. I suppose there were two because this laptop came with W8 and was forced to update to W10 later.
Windows data, however is still intact. It is even accessible from the file manager. Also, see:
sda7-9 all appeared after fedora installation.
Trying to boot with gpt-style W10 setup usb yields black screen. Trying to boot with mbr-style W10 usb works, I can even run a command prompt, but I don’t know where to go from there.
Also, I must confess that during fedora installation I didn’t pay much attention and pretty much went along with all the default options. I didn’t know about UEFI, mbr, etc. Also, an interesting thing to note about UEFI, in my bios there’s an option to ‘choose OS’ and the choice is between W8 (which is not installed) and “Others”. If I choose W8, I get the option to ‘enable UEFI boot’. What.
Will removing the sda7-9 partitions solve the problem?
PS: I saw an advice on the internet to just type exit into grub command prompt which would allegedly let me boot into whatever OS i want. It didn’t.
PPS: apologies for the crappy photos.
