Can you tell what exactly that "some pages" were you followed the procedure of?
The way you write it, can only be interpreted all of this different pages gave exactly the same procedure. So maybe better: tell exactly how you did it, then maybe somebody here can see what you did wrong.
Here's the deal: I bought a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad loaded with Windows 10. Windows 10 broke it with the last major update about 10 days ago. Eventually after many hours of searching for the solution I was able to use REFRESH to get W10 back. But I HATE W10!
My plan is to load Linux Mint on it , along side W10, on a partition of the 256gig SS Drive, and once I get used to Mint, erase Windows.
The problem is, I have heard many issues with Windows not wanting to dual boot with W10.
In fact I loaded Linux Mint on my old HP laptop with W7, and now it won't boot at all except through the Linux USB. I am looking for a solution to that.
But I don't want to have that problem with my new Lenovo with W10, so I am hoping someone here who has added Linux Mint alongside W10 (maybe even on a Lenovo laptop?!) can tell me how to avoid the dreaded "Won't boot!" issue.
Thanks for any info or links you can provide. I have seen some pages re dual booting with Windows BUT since I had problems when I followed the procedure on my W7 laptop, I am looking for a different link, one with the procedure that someone has used successfully for Dual Booting W10 and Linux Mint!
