    [ubuntu] Re: Intel M.2 SSD 660p not detected in ubuntu

    [ubuntu] Re: Dual boot fails

    Did you ever post link to summary report from Boot-Repair?

  5. Re: Single boot system, Why does grub menu load

  8. Re: failed to use Boot Repair on freshly installed UEFI Windows 10 and UEFI Ubuntu 18

  12. Re: failed to use Boot Repair on freshly installed UEFI Windows 10 and UEFI Ubuntu 18

    Do not use Boot-Repair ISO, it is old. It still should offer to boot in UEFI mode. Also better to get software directly from source, rather than third party.
    Perhaps your B450 is too new as needs...
  13. Re: Can I just delete the Mint partitions and install Ubuntu? Or are there more steps

    Do not know Mint, but based on Ubuntu.
    Ubuntu's Ubiquity installer only installs grub2's UEFI boot loader to first drive, usually the Windows ESP which they then share. You have to leap thru a...
