Kubuntu 18.04 Is Stealing My Boot Order

Hello All,

I need some help with this problem, or at least some suggestions that I might be able to try. I am running Kubuntu 18.04 and Windows 10 1803 on two separate SSDs. My motherboard is an Asus 97 A. My problem is that when ever I use Kubuntu it changes the boot order of my motherboard to boot from the Kubuntu SSD first. My Microsoft Windows installation does not create this change in boot order, just the Kubuntu installation.

 

I really like the way that I have my system set up. I do not use GRUB as a boot selector, I simply use the boot menu provided in the Asus motherboard by pressing F8 during start-up. But I really want my Windows SSD to be my first boot device because it makes life so much easier when there is a Windows update. Linux Mint does not change my boot order, either does Ubuntu 17.10 or Fedora 27. It is just the newest version of Kubuntu that is wreaking havoc with my motherboard's boot order. I know I can change and use a different distro but since Kubuntu 18.04 is an LTS distro, I kind of wanted to stick with this for awhile.

 

Does anybody here have any ideas on this? Thanks in advance.

 

Rocky

I just posed this question over at the Ubuntu Forum because I am perplexed.

Where is the link?  And what type of system are you running, UEFI BIOS?

 

There is a wealth of Info HERE

 

Here is a THREAD that may help you a little.  They are not booting separate drives but the idea is the same.

 

Your Thread

 

This will be interesting Rocky

Well after a week of trying different fixes for this very annoying issue I had to finally uninstall Kubuntu 18.10 and install Ubuntu 18.10 instead. Everything is working fine now.

Thanks Madman. I meant Ubuntu 18.04. Good catch. I will say this, the summer of 2018 was really hot on Planet Earth.
