I installed Linux Mint a few days ago. I installed it on an SSD with a system partition, a home partition, and a swap partition. On another separate SSD I have Windows 10 installed. Since installing Mint, Windows 10 doesn't boot when I select it from my motherboard's boot menu. It just boots Linux Mint. Windows also doesn't show up in grep. If I unplug the Mint SSD, the computer won't boot, since it doesn't see anything that's bootable. I tried running boot-repair, since that should theoretically repair this issue, but it doesn't boot; it just goes right into Mint.

This is what I got when I ran sudo parted -l:

sde is the boot-repair. sdc is Windows, and sdd is Mint. I also can't browse the Windows SSD from within Mint, but GParted still shows it there.
