Dual boot with Win10 and Linux mint does not start with grub

August 7, 2019 at 08:22:53
Specs: Linux Mint 19.1, AMD Ryzen 3 1200/8GB
Have two SDDs to dual boot with Win10 on disk0 and Linux mint on disk1 does not boot with grub after re-installation but boots from Win10.
Then had problems with Win10. After Driver Toolkit told me I had to update win10 drivers, I trusted it and told it to go ahead. After updating could not use keyboard or mouse any longer. So could no longer log in in either OS.
After re-installing win10 tried to install Linux dual boot again, after having deleted all the partitions with Win10 disk-manager, so one unallocated SDD on disk1.

But something must have gone wrong during re-installing so I deleted disk1 again and installed the Linux part to dual boot. Now loaded Linux Mint again and find on the desktop of the not yet installed Linux Mint 2 abnormal folder called tmp and Filesystem root (FS). When looking in the folder FS it is full of more folders and files like the folders bin, boot, initrd and many others I recognise as remnants that must not have been deleted when making disk1 unallocated. Same with the tmp folder.

Where are these folders allocated ? I assumed that they have to be deleted before re-installing the dual boot. CORRECT ?

Thanks for an advice, awaiting an answer before doing so.
