    Dualboot Windows10 and Linux Mint.


    I am kinda stuck here.I installed windows10on an old dell desktop.Also decided to dualboot with Linux Mint so I
    could play around.Anyway,my grandson would like the computer so I deleted the linux partition.Now when I boot
    up or restart is shows GNU GRUB 2.4 and then a prompt.I then have to type exit and it will boot into windows..I would like to
    get it back to normal for him so he can just boot into windows.Went into bios setup and looked at the boot menu.
    This is how it looks:
    1st.-uefi ubuntu
    2nd.-onboard NIC device
    3rd.-internal odd device
    4th.-usb storage
    5th.-usb floppy.
    Trouble is I don't know what to do with that.Any help would be appreciated,thank-you.Tony

  3. Switching from Linux mint to windows10

    Hey im running linux mint 19.3 Tricia on my dell latitude e6500, HDD: 240GB | CPU: intel core2 duo T9600 @ 2x 2.801GHz | RAM: 1194MiB / 3924MiB | MEM: 1394MiB / 3924MiB.

    It Came with win7 installed, i upgraded to win10, then switched to linux mint using bootable usb. I wiped my hdd of windows completely, and installed mint to the hdd.

    My question is can i use woeusb to reinstall win10 ? With 124gb usb stick and the iso image i have downloaded ? If so how should i partition/format the usb and hdd for this to work properly? What needs to be mounted/unmounted to what? Im not an expert and
    i dont wanna end up without an OS. I plan on installing win10 to hdd, and deleting linux only because i have no partitions made on my hdd.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated ��
