I had installed Kali Linux on my system. Then I decided to make dual boot with windows 10. After successfully installing win 10, I cannot access the grub menu and system directly loads into win 10.

I tried bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\Ubuntu\grubx64.efi but it didn't worked. I also tried replacing Ubuntu with Kali-Linux but things remained same


Use the same Kali installation disc you used, and enter into rescue mode, then open a shell on your root partition for your Kali, execute this:

bash(To set the shell environment to bash)
grub-install <partition name>
update-initramfs -vu

And then reboot, change your hard drive properties in the BIOS to the hard drive that we just installed grub on.

Should boot into Grub.

  • what does the partition name looks like? For example!! – CH325 Jul 16 '17 at 5:39
  • A partition should look like this E.g /dev/sda1. You can see all the partitions using the command lsblk – Hunter.S.Thompson Jul 16 '17 at 8:30
