On a new laptop with windows 8.1 I installed Linux Mint Cinnamon. Now when I boot the system, no option to boot Linux comes up, it just goes straight to windows.
When I boot with the linux cd and try to install again, the install options says "you have multiple operating systems installed" and not "you have windows 8 installed" like in this screen shot
So I guess linux is installed.
But when I check windows > config > system > advanced > settings > startup > edit windows 8 can only see 1 OS (itself).
I had a problem with the driver for nvdia graphics, so I installed in compatibility mode. As described here http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=122257
. Not sure that has anything to do with it.
After hours of googling I found this page:
(there really should be a link to this info from the installer at the double boot installation option!)
"Disable secure boot"
I can't find those settings in my bios at all. So unfortunately I am going nowhere with this fast.
So I installed Linux Mint and did not do the bios-adjustment first. How to procede? Do I need to uninstall linux first? If so, how?
