  7. Re: Dual boot with Windows 10 on non-UEFI system

    Your output shows sda1 as /boot/efi and as a vfat filesystem. If you have windows installed in Legacy mode, there is no reason to have an efi partition. A default install of windows on a Legacy...

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Cannot boot into Xubuntu 20.04 after upgrade from Lubuntu 16.04
