I cannot get Linux mint installed correctly in my acer aspire laptop. It has a uefi boot mode that I disable secure boot on, ran rufus to make the usb, and partitioned 20 gb for the install and 3 gb for the swap, with the install being on the / directory. My bootloader install being on that ext4 20 gb directory. The grub menu will not load without the USB in after install, why is this? I also tried to install the bootloader on my 300 mb efi partition yet it goes straight back to windows 10


Tl; Dr grub will not load even though I have tried to install Linux mint 17.3 at least 4 times

What on earth were you trying the first time?

Whatever you use to boot your PC, every OS has to use the same boot method.

As Windows is using EFI, every other OS needs to be using EFI too.

You need to install grub-efi into your EFI partition, and then maybe a boot menu as well if your BIOS is shit at being a boot menu.
