I've done a fair lot of Linux installs so far, and
NEVER has Linux done anything that I didn't
ask it to do during install.
But I have followed all the directions to the T when it came to installing Linux. In fact, I've gotten about 40 different ways to install Linux and every person I talked to about it said there would be no problems, but there were.. I even had a guy who has been using Linux for years come over and try to install it in case it was something I did and it did the same exact thing to him as it did to me.
It boots into Linux but will not boot into Windows. No matter what I try. I totally agree, it is nonsense.
Now, don't get me wrong. The week I did use Linux I loved it and I still do. But the fact that still remains. I had more "issues" with Linux to rival Windows. I hate Windows. But untill I can get some good solid instructions Linux will stay off my machine.
So, the fact that I couldn't boot into Windows has absolutely nothing to do with me. It's either Windows itself, which I can see or something with my computer being a Hewlett-Packard, which I can also see. I don't know how many times I read the directions, then reread them and then reread them again on how to install Linux. After I while, I just got plain tired of reading them.
I can admit I'm not great at navigating Linux. And I really don't know that much about it. But I can say that I've had a lot of weird ass problems with it that no Linux useer has ever had before.
Yes, I am a
but it doesn't help when every person I talk to tells you something different on install, and repair.
