Dualboot does not work

March 29, 2018 at 10:46:35
Specs: Linux x86_64
I have a dualboot on my PC. Windows vista and linux. When I start there is no possibility to choose a system. It starts up with Linux. F12 = Bootmenu I cannot change the choice. Does someone knows how to solve this problem?

Did the dual boot work at one time? or are you just setting it up? It would help to post the Linux version.

The F12 list is the hardware boot order, not the OS. If Vista was already installed & then you installed Linux, there should have been an option to either install it along side Windows or replace Windows. If you chose "along side", a boot menu would be displayed at startup. Since you're not seeing that, you either overwrote Vista, or Vista is still there but grub took over as the boot loader. If you look in the file system folder, are your Windows files still there?

In the file system folder are the windows files visibel. The dual-boot has worked correctly until the day I wanted to change the choice for windows vista and Linux/ I have changed something, but I don't know what I have done yet. I am 76 years and not as good in knowledge about booting.
