Windows is such a great os. Especially after you installed the windows updates. Look what cool features it unlocked :

    Is it a dual boot?

    Yeah Antergos and Win10. Fixed it already but pisses me off that windows always fucks up the bootloader

    I've broken out of grub rescue many times...

    That's why I don't use grub. I just manually select what drive to boot.

    @WildOrangutan maybe you don't see it but you still use grub.

    i have grub installed on a usb. on boot if usb is connected arch starts.
    else windows's bootloader loads windows.

    @shelladdicted that's a great idea. How can I do that?

    @brunofontes install grub on your linux os (do not install it on mbr) you only need it to generate/update grub config files (aka /boot/grub/grub.cfg)

    the quickest way to install grub on usb is to use rufus (windows software) flash a linux ISO
    when it's done go in <USB>/boot/grub/grub.cfg and replace its content with "configfile <pathToGrubcfg>" example: "configfile (hd0,gpt7)/boot/grub/grub.cfg"

    and remember google is your friend.

    This is my fear, that's why I physically disconnected my arch-ssd when booting windows.
    Can't fuck something up if it isn't there 🙃

    I always carry a Linux USB, usually Kali... You can then mount your Linux file system on your Hdd, chroot into it, and run update-grub.

    @Jop- a yes, I tried that one but gave up after it ran for roughly an hour.. in the end I reinstalled everything.

    @shelladdicted dude I just did an Ubuntu install on an USB stick last week and it was impossible to boot from USB until I put the Grub on top in bcdedit. So it boots in grub every time, even if the USB is not connected.
    I admire you O_O
