I am hoping someone would be able to help me. I have installed peppermint 4 but after restarting it, the grub menu didn't show up and now it boots straight into Windows. I went back into peppermint by using "Try out Peppermint" option from the boot USB. I've also run

sudo fdisk -l

and this is the output.

The /boot partition for peppermint was set at /dev/sdb.

I have also tried to use type this code:

sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt
chroot /mnt

It has managed to mount it but after trying chroot /mnt it says:

Operation not allowed.

What can I do to enable grub now?
