BIOS UEFI Dual Boot Order

HP Recommended
HP 15 d003sl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi guys,

 

I'm trying to properly dual-boot Windows 10 Edu 64bit and Kubuntu 16.10 64bit. The problem is that on startup it's impossible to start GRUB, Windows is loaded automatically.

 

Is there a way to change UEFI boot order?

 

I tried several methods but Windows always overrides my changes; I managed to load GRUB only once by renaming the Windows OS Loader path to the GRUB one, but after I booted to Windows once again, it overrode my settings creating a new Windows OS Loader entry.

 

These are the methods I've already tried:

 

  • Renaming the path as I said up here through bcdedit
  • Using EasyUEFI to change boot order
  • Using efibootmgr in Kubuntu
  • Using boot-repair in Kubuntu
  • Updating GRUB in Kubuntu

 

While on my desktop I have a BIOS setting that lets me change UEFI boot partition, I don't have anything similar on this laptop.

 

Let me know,

 

thanks.

Hi,

Why would you use EFI boot for a dual boot or just in general? The only purpose of UEFI is for the intelligence agencies to have access into your computer. UEFI is no different to the old fashioned BIOS. Go to the legacy mode and enjoy your dual boot.
