  • Linux Lite: 5.2 64bit

  • CPU: Core 2 Duo 3.40 GHz

  • MEMORY: 8Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: AMD ATI Radeon 1300x

  • Kernel: 5.x
How do I restore the boot menu so I can boot into Linux Lite again?

I've been running my PC as a dual boot with Windows 10 and Linux Lite 5.2 64-bit, but after an update my PC only boots into Windows 10 and I'm not sure how to restore the boot menu.

UEFI or MBR?

Windows 10 is in the MBR partition but I was using the Linux Lite boot loader prior to the update. It was the one with the feather in the background.

(And now you realize why I haven't worked this out yet.  :011: )

All fixed! I had a nap and researched
Code: [Select]
boot-repair and now I can boot into LL or that other OS again!
