    Thumbs down Dual Boot

    I've dual booted Win 10 & Tumbleweed for ages now, rarely use Windows, bit of a novelty. However upon updating 10 it has steamrollered over my boot priority, the big I am. I have to use F12 temporary boot menu to boot SUSE. The boot priority menu in BIOS just freezes on me for some reason. Do I just need to reinstall GRUB? It would be handy to know for the future. Both Win & SUSE are hard partitioned with SUSE on a secondary M.2 SSD. Tumbleweed just took care of everything automatically when I installed, seamless, but now messed up by Windows!

    If you can get into linux via F12, and assuming that this is a UEFI box, then something like
    Code:
    # efibootmgr -v
    # efibootmgr -o 3,1
    might fix the problem. The first of those just lists the UEFI boot options. The second command sets the boot order. The command that I suggested would make boot 0003 the first and boot 0001 the second. Use the output from the first of those commands to find what numbers you need in the second.
