Installing debian alongside Windows in Hp

Postby malina1992 » 2018-02-17 04:07


I tried to install Jessie on my hp spectre x360 laptop. I allocated a 250GB partition for root, 8GB for swap area and a third partition with 512 MB as boot. Meanwhile, when the software and package installation terminated, installing the grub came to error. Thus, I couldn't have debian installed completely.
How can I configure the grub for debian in my hp spectre x360?

Need a lot more details than that. What was the GRUB error exactly? Did you disable Secure Boot? Did you boot the installer in UEFI mode? What Debian image did you use? A latest model like that may not be fully supported by Stretch.
