I tried to install Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS on my laptop Acer TravelMate p248-mg, using a USB-Bootable. I selected my USBBootable from the boot manager to load the bootable, then installed it. After installation, Ubuntu says it is complete, and I must restart my laptop. After I restart, why does it always load the MS-windows-10? I am expecting it to first show the GRUB, but it always loads to MS-windows-10.

    At the end of the process it probably asked you where to install grub. What did you answer? – roaima Sep 8 '18 at 16:36
  • You might find a simple solution here or here, although I'd personally make sure to kick Windows' BCD in the nuts and give boot control over to GRUB for the whole drive. – John WH Smith Sep 9 '18 at 11:51
  • @roaima it didnt ask sir about where to install the grub – Lesther Sep 10 '18 at 8:15

I'm no expert (very old-school, haven't upgraded my PC in years so much has changed), but try disabling the "Secure Boot" option. On my old machine I had to use legacy mode to install GNU/Linux.

  • are you using windows 10 sir ? – Lesther Sep 10 '18 at 8:17
  • Nope. Quit Winblows ages back. I just wondered if the firmware "BIOS" was not automatically deleting the GRUB EFI executable as some OEMs do this kinda low thing for kickbacks and call it "security". Luckily, AFAIK, they must still provide the user an option to disable the feature. – Jay Sep 10 '18 at 11:57
  • You may want to try a console during install or a portable Lignux and see if you cannot run "grub-install" and target your HDD/SSD from there as it's then possible to see any error messages that the Ubuntu graphical install won't show. – Jay Sep 10 '18 at 12:04
