As I'm new to dual boot Linux with Windows I'm probably missing a lot during this process and I'll be glad if someone can help me sort things out.

I got a new Dell XPS 13 (7390). It came with Windows 10 Home installed, which I need to maintain for work reasons, but I'd like to have Linux Mint as my primary OS.

I followed Dell's instructions to install Linux by shrinking the Windows' partition and then using that creating 4 new partitions in it: /boot; /root; /home; /swap.

Please do tell me if you need to know more about my machine to understand what's happening.

At first I had problems in make my USB flash drive recognize the unallocated space, which I finally solved as explained here (but without setting boot mode to legacy (as it is no longer possible).

Now I have the two systems installed. The only problem is that I can boot Windows only selecting "Raid On" on BIOS settings, while Mint works only switching it back to AHCI mode.

Is there a way to solve this and not touch the BIOS every time?

I managed to solve this re-installing Windows on AHCI mode. Now the Grub screen can easily bring me to Mint or Windows without problems and without having to touch the BIOS everytime.
