Tounai341333dBad news : your bootloader is not on your linux disk
sbiewald4118333dLinux - the same as Windows - cannot be started by your BIOS.
This is normal. A boot loader is used for that process. Windows has its own (I forgot the name), and Linux usually uses Grub. Grub also has the capability to boot non Linux operating systems. From the perspective of your BIOS, only boot loaders exist. For some reason, you installed Grub on your Windows hard drive, and that is what your BIOS reports.
cb219776333d@sbiewald sure, the OS isn't loaded from bios directly.
But ah shit ... grub on the windows disk... I selected the linux disk as the home for grub when I installed linux. I had to create the root system on the linux disk. Maybe the option for grub was reset after that, so it was put on the windows one.
