  1. Fixed it!! It seemed that everything was pointing to the fact that the MBR on Windows SSD somehow got erased, so I was able to recover it by following these steps: https://neosmart.net/wiki/fix-mbr/#Fix_the_MBR_in_Windows_10 Even then I had go through additional steps outlined after "If bootrec utility doesn’t fix it..." After that, I had to change boot priority in BIOS to get to Ubuntu (because after following the steps in the link I provided it defaulted it to Windows) and in Ubuntu, I ran the commands that M.Yurizaki mentioned sudo os-prober and sudo update-grub. It detected Windows right away and I am now able to double boot. Thanks, M.Yurizaki and Lukyp for your help. What a relief, I came very close to reinstalling Windows entirely.
  2. I see 1st Boot Device [UEFI:ubuntu] 2nd Boot Device [Internal ODD Devices] and then under Hard Disk Drives there is: 1st Boot Device - ubuntu 2nd Boot Device - UEFI OS (I assume it’s the Windows one?) 3rd Boot Device - ubuntu So far changing the order of these didn’t seem to do anything. Still goes to Ubuntu all the time
  3. Yeah, both SSDs show up in Other Locations. OS is the one that has Windows 10.
  4. No dice. Still getting the same output.
  5. It doesn't. Here's the output: Generating grub configuration file ... Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-4.15.0-42-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-4.15.0-42-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-4.15.0-29-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-4.15.0-29-generic Adding boot menu entry for EFI firmware configuration done
  6. Yesterday I decided to make a use of an empty 1 TB hard drive I have in my PC and install Ubuntu 18.04 on it, hoping to get the dual-boot option. The installation was successful, however now when I boot up my computer I'm not getting a boot choice between Windows and Ubuntu, it always boots up Ubuntu by default. First I freaked out thinking that I had accidentally installed it on a primary SSD drive on which I have Windows. But then I checked that drive on Ubuntu file system, all the Windows files appear to be in tact. Does anyone know how can I fix it?
