Dual Boot is very slow/Boot Repair didn't work.
 
Upgraded to Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon from 18.3 with a dual boot to Windows. Booting to either OS takes a very long time. Boot repair didn't work.

Received the following:

"Please create a ESP partition (FAT32, 100MB~250MB, start of the disk, boot flag). This can be performed via tools such as Gparted. Then try again."

I'm not sure what this means. Adding a new partition at the beginning of the disk would take many hours. Am I understanding this correctly?

That would indicate you system is uefi capable, boot repair is booing in uefi mode, however windows and mint are installed in legacy/csm mode. Post the boot-repair info output for your system

Thanks. Here's the info. It seems I have a few issues.

Suggested repair: ______________________________________________________________

The default repair of the Boot-Repair utility would reinstall the grub-efi-amd64-signed of
sda7,
using the following options: sda1/boot/efi,
Additional repair would be performed: unhide-bootmenu-10s use-standard-efi-file

Blockers in case of suggested repair: __________________________________________

Please create a ESP partition (FAT32, 100MB~250MB, start of the disk, boot flag). This can be performed via tools such as Gparted. Then try again.

Confirmation request before suggested repair: __________________________________

SFS detected. You may want to retry after converting Windows dynamic partitioning (SFS partitions) to a basic disk. This can be performed via tools such as TestDisk or EASEUS-Partition-Master / MiniTool-Partition-Wizard.
Are you sure you want to continue anyway?

Final advice in case of suggested repair: ______________________________________


Please do not forget to make your UEFI firmware boot on the The OS now in use - Linux Mint 20.1 CurrentSession entry (sda1/efi/****/shim****.efi (**** will be updated in the final message) file) !
If your computer reboots directly into Windows, try to change the boot order in your UEFI firmware.

If your UEFI firmware does not allow to change the boot order, change the default boot entry of the Windows bootloader.
For example you can boot into Windows, then type the following command in an admin command prompt:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\****\shim****.efi (**** will be updated in the final message)

Suggested repair: ______________________________________________________________

The default repair of the Boot-Repair utility would reinstall the grub-efi-amd64-signed of
sda7,
using the following options:        sda1/boot/efi,
Additional repair would be performed: unhide-bootmenu-10s  use-standard-efi-file   

Blockers in case of suggested repair: __________________________________________

 Please create a ESP partition (FAT32, 100MB~250MB, start of the disk, boot flag). This can be performed via tools such as Gparted. Then try again.

Confirmation request before suggested repair: __________________________________

SFS detected. You may want to retry after converting Windows dynamic partitioning (SFS partitions) to a basic disk. This can be performed via tools such as TestDisk or EASEUS-Partition-Master / MiniTool-Partition-Wizard.
Are you sure you want to continue anyway?

Final advice in case of suggested repair: ______________________________________

Please do not forget to make your UEFI firmware boot on the The OS now in use - Linux Mint 20.1 CurrentSession entry (sda1/efi/****/shim****.efi (**** will be updated in the final message) file) !
If your computer reboots directly into Windows, try to change the boot order in your UEFI firmware.

If your UEFI firmware does not allow to change the boot order, change the default boot entry of the Windows bootloader.
For example you can boot into Windows, then type the following command in an admin command prompt:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\****\shim****.efi (**** will be updated in the final message)

It would indeed take many hours if there's no space at the beginning of the disk and an existing partition would need to be shrinked + moved first.

Here's a search for your problem.
Apart from your own thread here, the 2nd + 3rd result look relevant.
The message seems to be specific to this boot-repair-disk?
In any case, back up important data.
Then, I'd simply do what it asks.
And run boot-repair again? I'm not familiar with this tool.

It takes a very long time to boot into either OS. The wait is mostly just after I turn on the computer. In Windows, I normally see the circle rotating within seconds. Now, it takes around 73 seconds before it begins to move. I'm guessing it's about the same for Linux but it doesn't have a rotating circle so it's a little harder to see the exact time. Then in Linux, I can't login because the password section is stuck for a few minutes. I reinstalled Windows twice, and Linux three times to get it to boot. Now, I have the long waits but everything else works.

That would indicate you system is uefi capable, boot repair is booing in uefi mode, however windows and mint are installed in legacy/csm mode. Post the boot-repair info output for your system

Can't copy and paste it for some reason so trying this.

boot into mint and post the ouput of the following
Code:

sudo parted -l
cat /sys/firmware/efi

I don't know what that means. Very new to Linux.

colorpurple21859 05-01-2021 08:38 AM

open a terminal and enter as is

I tried that before, "cat: /sys/firmware/efi: Is a directory"

See, newbie. ;)

colorpurple21859 05-01-2021 09:01 AM

that was to verify if you was booting mint in uefi or legacy/csm mode.
post the output of

Boot into mint, run gparted, highlight sda1, manage flags, uncheck hidden, keep esp boot flag
