I recently installed Windows 7 and had my friend remove the Linux HDD first, and sometime after putting the Linux HDD back in my desktop I updated GRUB but I forgot to change the boot order in the UEFI first. Now when I try changing the boot order in the UEFI it doesn't show my Linux Mint KDE HDD (2TB) so I cant change the boot order also my C Drive isn't showing up under the File Manger :( Please help.

Way more info needed, We are talking about 2 hard drives or 1.

I have two hard drives one for Windows and another for Linux.

And when my friend re-installed Windows he didn't change anything in the UEFI.

I looked under secure boot and I see Windows UEFI is enabled but there's an option for other OS and there's also Key Management but it's all Greek to me.

Its strange before re-installing Windows everything was working fine maybe I should reinstall Linux. :scratchhead:

How was Linux installed?

In UEFI mode or legacy mode?

Where was the bootloader installed?

Was it installed next to Windows bootloader or on the drive Linux is on?

Can you boot Linux?

I have been looking into this.  You have Windows 7 UEFI and an Asus motherboard?

 

I wonder if this is the problem

 

A recent Windows 7 update partially bricks computers that have an Asus motherboard fitted, it emerged this week.

Windows 7 machines that have installed Microsoft's KB3133977 update may trigger a "secure boot violation" during startup, preventing the PC from loading the operating system, Asus said.

 

Though the KB3133977 patch has been out for a while, Microsoft has only this week changed its classification from "optional" to "recommended", meaning for many users it now automatically installs through Windows Update – and then borks the PC.

I did a custom install for Linux I partitioned the Linux drive I have 200GB for root, 8GB for swap & the rest for Home. I not sure I believe its UEFI mode but I did see something in about legacy mode, I'm not quite sure. I don't know where the bootloader is installed. I think the bootloader must on the Linux drive because I'm able to boot into Linux but I have load the boot manager by pressing F8 when my desktop is booting up and selecting my Linux 2TB drive.

I don't see that under installed updates or on the updates list.
