Can't boot Fedora 27 from external hard

asked 2018-04-21 22:54:21 -0500


I have a laptop which runs windows 10 by default. I downloaded Fedora27 workStation live image + Fedora Media Writer for Windows. So, I created a live version on a USB memory. Using this live USB, I installed Fedora on my external hard. For the partition section, I clicked on "Click here to create them automatically" link. So, all of the partitions on external hard created automatically by fedora installation. Also setup a root password + user and done, but when the installation finished and I restarted my laptop, it cannot boot the Fedora and it shows an error for 1-2 seconds and says: can't find boot ...

my Laptop is on UFEI boot mode. it's also able to load form USB. I had the same steps for Ubuntu and I was able to load the OS from the external hard but not sure what should I do to boot Fedora from my external hard.

Re do the install and follow this and see if it helps. Grub might not be installed correctly. Is Windows starting up instead??

Fedora with Windows 8/10
