If your version of GRUB is modern enough, there should be a grub-reboot command that works essentially the same as efibootmgr -n. For the grub-reboot command to work, you may need to set GRUB_DEFAULT=saved in /etc/default/grub if it is not already set that way.

Did you make a flash BIOS update, or do something else that could have reset the BIOS settings to factory defaults? Some UEFI implementations will forget the OS-specific boot settings when that happens, and then the fallback bootloader \efi\boot\bootx64.efi on the ESP partition will get executed, and typically it will be a backup copy of the Windows ...

I suggest you boot into the rescue mode from a CentOS 8 boot ISO, and once you've got a chroot on the CentOS system, run the following: dnf reinstall grub2-efi-x64 shim-x64 which should reinstall your GRUB executables (if they are missing) then you need to add the GRUB entry to the EFI boot list: efibootmgr -c -d /dev/<disk> -p 1 -l \\EFI\\centos\\...

Since your system is UEFI, this is most likely caused by having Debian's GRUB before Mint's GRUB in the firmware boot order. You can check this by running efibootmgr -v as root. The BootCurrent line will identify the bootloader that was most recently used to boot the system, the BootOrder specifies the order in which various configured boot options will be ...

Usually, this would be a result of Fast Startup enabled. Switch it off from the Power Options in Windows. If I am not wrong, some laptops have a similar setting (not same) enabled in BIOS as Fast Boot. For dual booting it is advisable to switch that off too. For disabling fast startup, follow these solution 1 steps For disabling fast boot, you'll have to ...

Some people on reddit recommended to delete the partition from windows disk management. Which I did. Wasn't essentially what I wanted but I went with the easy route.

The answer turned out to be... boot into BIOS set the HDD with Linux Mint to highest boot priority power off the computer boot directly into Linux Happy configs (I guess the windows drivers don't completely forfeit their hold on the hardware, until the power cycle, so a reboot into Linux doesn't work.) Thank you @Murray Jensen for the comment (:

However, after booting into Windows, I cannot boot into Linux again (grub screen does not appear, laptop boots into Windows directly) This is most likely Windows 10 detecting that its UEFI NVRAM boot entry has been tampered with, and "self-healing" it with no regard to other OSs that might exist on the system. That is something Windows 10 will do, ...
