Linux (Ubuntu) Won't Boot After Shutting Down Windows 10

Seems that Windows 10 periodically (secretly) resets the "fast shutdown" feature to "ON". This has the effect of leaving the hard drive in a state of hibernation that precluded Ubuntu from booting.

Since it does not happen often, I forget how to solve this issue. So I spent a couple of fun filled hours dwelling on this. A tutorial concerning how to fully shutdown Windows 10 is located here. How to fully shut down windows 10.

That solved the problem and Ubuntu once again boots successfully.

Thans for sharing this..

Good to know, how to fix this. I had heard about that before and I fixed it once but I - like you - did not remember how I got that done.. Until now..
