Re: PLEASE HELP! Problem with installation.

It sounds like the boot instructions are still for windows. When you installed BL did you choose to install grub to the correct drive (probably /dev/sda)? This choice is the last one you make during the installation.

HowTo: Install BunsenLabs with the Graphical Installer/Install GRUB

Windows ignores any other non-windows components, so you need to install GRUB. If you want WinOS to be the first choice when booting, you will subsequently need to change the boot order in the GRUB config.

Re: PLEASE HELP! Problem with installation.

Thank you for the answer!

The thing is that it doesn´t even forward me to the installation page. So I just open the DVD rive Run Debian GNU/Linux and press there setup, after a quick setup it says that a restart is needed and after the computer restarts, I should choose BL for installing, but my computer automatically logins into windows 10, so I don´t even see the BL installation page.

Re: PLEASE HELP! Problem with installation.

You most likely need to setup the drive from the windows side of things first before you install bunsenlabs.

What do your partitions look like? I would say windows 10 owns all your drive lest you made space for something else.

OK, didn't realize you hadn't got that far. Search for how to disable UEFI Secure Boot, or choose Legacy Boot mode.

Thank you guys for the answer. Tried it all, still doesn't work. Splitted the hard drive and disabled UEFI mode. I´ve heard that it might be some Lenovo´s settings.
