What happens if you change the boot order in bios to boot to the HDD containing windows?

Attention is what makes life meaningful.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

This has nothing to do with the problem, grub can load an OS from any disk and partition (if it is a sensible one; it might not do something like booting a DOS-based OS from an extended partition etc.).

Post聽 the output of "sudo lsblk" and "sudo blkid" here, that way we can help.

The page can be daunting as it has loads of information out of which not all is relevant to you. To summarize the process is roughly:

  1. install os-prober (it is not installed per default in Arch),
  2. mount your windows partition and then
  3. run grub-mkconfig (as outlined earlier on that page).

With the help of above commands, people can probably give you the exact command needed to enable grub detecting Windows.

(in case you ever re-run grub-mkconfig, you need to remount the Windows partition less grub-mkconfig will overwrite the configuration without Windows entries)

All you have to do is install os-prober:

sudo pacman -S os-prober

Then mount the Windows partitions, and run:聽

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

I can't mount those drives.. bcz it is NTFS
and it says unmounted and no option to mount it

You need to install ntfs-3g with

sudo pacman -S ntfs-3g

And are you sure you had them all successfully mounted when you ran grub-mkconfig? Because what you should get is something like this, note "Found Windows Boot Manager" on there:

You already have os-prober, then. Garuda apparently uses a forked grub with a forked os-prober.聽

Just out of curiosity, what's the output of

efibootmgr

?

Yeah something weird is going on. It looks like your Windows install isn't using UEFI.聽

I mean you only need one entry, mine has two for a different reason, but yeah efibootmgr should show all EFI bootloaders on the system (and doesn't use os-prober), and yours isn't showing Windows.聽

So I need to install Garuda Linux without UEFI?
am I right?

No, you need to be using UEFI. Windows isn't using UEFI, and it needs to be. You would need to reinstall Windows and use UEFI.聽

Or, you could install refind and use refind instead of grub as your bootloader, and see if that detects Windows. If it doesn't then you're definitely not using UEFI for Windows.聽
