So I have Linux Mint 19.1 installed on one SSD (SSD 1), and Windows 10 installed on another SSD (SSD 2).

In my BIOS settings, if I choose SSD 1 as the boot priority, it launches Linux Mint, but doesn't show a GRUB menu.

If I choose SSD 2 as the boot priority, it launches Windows 10, no boot menu either.

Very simple, I just want it so when I use SSD 1 as my boot priority, I want it to show a GRUB menu that lets me choose between Linux Mint and Windows 10.

Does it have something to do with the fact that I chose not to install that UEFI option at the beginning of the Linux Mint Installation? The installer said if I did that, I might not be able to boot into any other operating systems.

Do I need to reinstall Linux Mint?

Also I'm not even sure if this is a BIOS or UEFI on my system, but this is what it looks like:GIGABYTE Mobo
