I have been using elementary OS for some time now(months). I have it dual-booted with Windows 10. What I did to open elementary OS was to press "esc" while booting, then choose boot options, then ubunty and after that grub would open. Thats how I have been using elementary OS. If I don't this windows 10 will be booted automatically. Someone please help me I want grub to open at automatically when I start my system(laptop) and I can choose windows or Elementary OS then. I have a HP laptop with specifications: i-3 6006U 8GB DDR4 ram 1TB Rom

This needs to be changed in Windows, as that OS loves to take control of the boot partition. Fortunately, it’s not too hard to fix.

In Windows:

  1. Open “Command Prompt” as administrator
  2. Run the following command:
    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi
  3. Restart the machine to test
