    HP dual boot windows reset

    If you have a HP Laptop and are dual booting, you have observed that default grub setting is being reset by windows and on reboot, windows boots directly without going to grub.

    This does not happen till you boot in fedora but once you boot in windows, it happens.

    Solution which worked for me is as under;

    Open command prompt in windows as administrator and type this command and press enter. (Please note this works when secure boot is turned off)

    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\fedora\grubx64.efi

    On reboot whether to windows or fedora, now you will find grub.
