  1. So i was feeling a bit adventurous. I have been away from linux for a while and i decided to jump back into the swing of things. My Laptop Is an Asus R554L Intel Core i-3 6GB intel integrated graphics single hard drive this is the partition scheme Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sda1 2048 534527 532480 260M EFI System /dev/sda2 534528 567295 32768 16M Microsoft reserved /dev/sda3 567296 389689343 389122048 185.6G Microsoft basic data /dev/sda4 389689344 390711295 1021952 499M Windows recovery environment /dev/sda5 390711296 669573119 278861824 133G Microsoft basic data /dev/sda6 669573120 964376575 294803456 140.6G Linux filesystem /dev/sda7 964376576 976771071 12394496 5.9G Linux swap so the Funtoo Bootloader is installed at ./sda1 the windows partition is the ./sda3 and i would like to add that to the grub boot menu. I can still find the efi file from windows. But not sure how to get the boot loader to understand the efi file. I tried to use grub-mkconfig and all it seemed to do was add a boot option inside my uefi bios for windows which does not properly load the Operating System. I have turned off secure boot in the bios and turned off fast boot, however it is still booting uefi mode. I tried adding an entry to /etc/boot.cfg and reinstalling the boot loader by mounting the /boot partition but that did not seem to work. below is the attempted entry on /etc/boot.cfg boot { generate grub default "Funtoo Linux genkernel" timeout 3 } "Funtoo Linux" { kernel bzImage[-v] } "Funtoo Linux genkernel" { kernel kernel[-v] initrd initramfs[-v] params += real_root=auto rootfstype=auto } "Funtoo Linux better-initramfs" { kernel vmlinuz[-v] initrd /initramfs.cpio.gz } "Windows 10" --class windows --class os { insmod ntfs search --no-floppy --set=root --fs-uuid c132cb80-fdd7-4c84-84f4-46e164fa65dd ntldr /bootmgr } any help would be appreciated. I was able to install kde so im starting to really enjoy this Distro. always been a fan of gentoo but the documentation seemed cryptic to say the least. I found my experience with Funtoo to be pretty easy considering ive been away from linux for about 4 years. If there is anymore information needed please let me know I do have a couple other issues im experiencing with USE flags but honestly, they are not as important as booting into my windows.
