    ran first W10.

    shrunk partition, created 30 GB partition

    booted off the ISO image, then installed Mint onto this new partition - setting up / root, swap and home file.

    PC just boots into W10.

    googled - tried a few command prompts instructions, to no avail. seems common issue, but i can't seem to find simple solution.

    NOTE - Didn't know whether to put this into Windows or Other Systems category....

    I struggled with the BIOS setting options with this Gigabyte GA-HA110-D3A motherboard, it wouldn't recognise the Live USB...

    got grub up somehow, when i was tinkering in BIOS.

    a little confused as to the boot manager listing my SSD/partitions several times, and I don't remember how I got into this GRUB - Linux Mint was running fine. i rebooted, and it goes straight into W10.

    so, it's there somewhere - how do i get boot manager screen to allow me to select betw W10 and this Mint?

    let me see later, if I can re-do BIOS/boot sequence settings to get into Mint (?!?)
