This has to be YOUR decision .. we don't generally give out advice when there's even a risk to your PC

If that's ALL it's going to do I'd say you were safe .. /boot/grub aint working anyway (and that's not as far as I can tell planning on changing anything to do with Windows) and I have a feeling it's going to replace it with grub-efi wich is what's needed.

If you do decide to continue .. please post screenshots of the next steps .. I'm particularly interested it the commands that are highlighted in that screenshot

sudo chroot "/mnt/boot-sav/sda9" apt-get install -y --force-yes grub-efi-amd64-signed shim-signed linux-signed-generic

I am doing the same thing to try and fix windows not booting from Grub....  I think I done the next bit right

ok Epic Fail - lol - now Peppermint won't boot on laptop but windows does

This is what boot-repair posted for those in the know
http://paste2.org/9p6EcEMm

I hope you techies can learn something from it.

Me... I am off to re-install peppermint  :) will wait 5 mins incase someone comes back with a fix  :D  and I will live with : start laptop : change to secure boot to use windows and make sure windows boot manager is first in EFI list  or   change to legacy-mode and ensure peppermint is first in the EFI list.

Hi PCNetSpec

leaving secure boot enabled and having peppermint first - I get

GNU GRUB version 2.02-beta2-9ubuntu1.2
Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB list possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.

grub> _

when I boot legacy-mode with peppermint first I get

error: file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod'  not found.
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue>

Windows works fine if I leave it in secure boot mode and have windows loader first in EFI menu

@zebedeeboss

No, I think you should now be booting in UEFI mode with secure boot enabled .. and choose the OS/Partition to boot in the UEFI interface.

and you really want it to boot PEPPERMINT (sda9) first, as that's where GRUB is, with added to its menu.

that said, this is someone else active support  topic, so we shouldn't really be hijacking it ;)

Hi

My BIOS allows me to choose what boots first   windows or Peppermint  so no need to go into windows and amend the boot order

I get the same screen shot as the very first post on this thread when I attempt to boot Peppermint in Secure boot mode - I get the error: message grub rescue screen when booting legacy mode

Zeb...

agreed.... my bad

It didn't work for me - but worth a try...
