I'm working with Scientific 7.2, which was installed on clean space that I partitioned off from the Windows side before installing. Obviously I had to switch the system BIOS to legacy boot so that I could boot to the disk and install the OS. That went fine, and GRUB is able to boot into Scientific Linux and work just fine. Using info I found on this forum, I was able to get a Windows entry on the boot loader, but I can't get the system to boot into windows anymore. I've got the OS partition selected in the configuration file, but the screen tells me that no OS was found. Switching back to UEFI boot causes my system to not be able to boot to anything at all...

Is there something I need to do to windows to get it to boot properly in legacy mode? Thanks for the help, everyone.

Edit: this is Windows 10. The laptop is an Acer E5 series notebook.

Did your laptop come with Windows pre-installed? And it was using UEFI?

[EDIT] Is Secure Boot turned on?
