I'm running Ubuntu and I want to dual boot NixOS. I used the quick install script on their site, but it didn't make a Grub entry. I have no experience with Grub whatsoever, so any help is appreciated!

The first command on that page is to install Nix, the package manager, not NixOS, the Linux distro. Nix can be run on any Linux distro.

To dual boot you'll have to follow the NixOS instructions.

  • in my case I did install NixOS, I see the partitions it/I created during install, but no entry on grub
