install debian to windows 10 machine

Postby technosinga » 2018-01-08 13:26

hi,

I want to install debian to windows 10 without any media. Downloaded win32-loader. But after running it, after boot up, there is a menu of two items, start Windows 10 or Continue to install Debian. If I choose second item, it loops back to the menu.
Using F key to enter boot menu, it has 3 items:

Boot Mode : [UEFI]
Secure Boot: [Enabled]
Boot Priority Order:
1. Windows Boot Manager <version>

I cannot edit the menu. Can't even access the items with Up/Down keys.

Surfing the web reveals that Debian has to support UEFI and Secure Boot has to be disabled.
How to have dual boot of Debian and Linux?
I can't use netinstall because the bios does not seem to support boot from another media.

ok, a little progress. In boot menu, select 'Security', it allows me to create a Supervisor Password. After that, I can disable secure boot. But after 'Save and Exit', I get the boot selection menu with 'Windows 10' or 'Continue to install Debian'. When I choose the second choice, it loops back to the selection menu, as before.

Have fun. Virtualbox is fun, too. :wink:
Nobody would ever ask questions If everyone possessed encyclopedic knowledge of the man pages.

That's insane, maybe if you post some specifics on the machine someone has a better way to get installed.
