restore grub after windows update
 
Hello,
latest threads are back to 2012. I figured i'll try my luck with a new thread.

Situation:
dual boot with ... not sure what windows ..10, probably.. and Fedora 28. After allowing win to update itself i don't get the linux's boot manager.

this thread seemed to be what i need to do, but :
Code:

fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 953.9 GiB, 1024209543168 bytes, 2000409264 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt
Disk identifier: 401E0122-4DC1-4213-8B97-85C4E2A1BE64

Device          Start        End  Sectors  Size Type
/dev/sda1        2048    1026047  1024000  500M EFI System
/dev/sda2    1026048    1288191    262144  128M Microsoft reserved
/dev/sda3    1288192  453661892 452373701 215.7G Microsoft basic data
/dev/sda4  1928222720 1929969663  1746944  853M Windows recovery environment
/dev/sda5  1929969664 1953521663  23552000  11.2G Windows recovery environment
/dev/sda6  453662720  455759871  2097152    1G Linux filesystem
/dev/sda7  455759872 1415935999 960176128 457.9G Linux LVM

Partition table entries are not in disk order.

the sda1 is EFI and i'm not sure what the implications of "grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda" ( i suspect the author meant sda1)
Please advise. thank you

P.S. I can boot into Linux if i get the F10/one time BIOS loader to popup.

The Win10 update changed the default boot entry - with UEFI, there is no need to re-install grub. Simply boot into Fedora, go get efibootmgr and run it - it will list all the NVRAM entries - use it to make Fedora the default.

Done.
