Hi everyone!
So I am using Windows 10. I decided to dual boot and install linux too. I have 2 harddrives inside the computer. My windows 10 system files are on SSD. And games ect on HDD. So I partitoned 50GB the HDD in order to try linux. I mounted it into a usb and tried to install Linux Mint. But it kept giving an error message about the GRUB2. I tried to install it manually and even created new partiton just for it :D In the end, I found a way to install Linux without installing the bootloader. And installed the bootloader into a usb. The bootloader actually works, but it directly boots into minimal bash. I really dont want to install it on ssd because it gave an error during installation before and clashed my windows boot manager once..
So can someone please help me with it ?
My system specs are MSI GE60 2pc
Intel i7 4710hq,
gtx 850m,
8gb ram,
250GB SSD,
