    Adam,

    This is not a lot of info to work off of.

     

    What hardware do you have?

    Have you tried accessing Windows again via the one-time-boot menu on your computer?

    Is CloudReady working normally?

    I installed dual boot of CR with Windows 10 on my Asus. I get the dual boot option when I start up, and I am able to boot into CR with no problem. However, if I try to boot into Windows 10, it just gives me a blank screen and nothing happens. Can someone please help so I can boot into Windows?

    Adam,

     

    Thanks. I encourage you to try using the one-time boot menu to select "Windows Boot Manager" if possible.

    It's an Asus x200m. I tried the boot menu, but it takes me back to the dual boot screen. CloudReady is working just fine.

    I did try the Windows Boot Manager but it takes me back to the GRUB screen with the dual boot options.

    Adam,

     

    I'm not sure if dualboot works on that machine - you'll note that it is not on our certified list for dualboot - it's possible the BIOS has some issues.

     

    See if you can add (re-add) a boot entry in the BIOS for Windows by selecting the Windows EFI partition.

    I can add a boot entry in the BIOS using the Windows partition, but it asks me for a path to the .efi file. What should that path be?

    You may need to do a little research to figure out the typical Windows 10 boot path -  I'm not a Windows expert :-(

    On the machines you are able to dual boot, can you tell me what the GRUB file for Windows option looks like? I can try to replicate that.

    Hey - 

     

    Here's what's in EFI/Microsoft/Boot/  in the EFI partition of my dualbooting machine  - hope that helps.

     

    Bear in mind that the issue could be your machine's firmware-level expectations obstructing this, which could mean that comparing the EFI files won't fix that problems.
