Fedora Boot Problem

Hello ,
After i install fedora to hard disk i remove flash disk and restart but system go directly to windows 10
not let me choose which system i would run
when i open boot options i see boot from only
1- Hard
2 - usb
No From Fedora
My boot type UEFI

Did you create a boot partition at /boot/efi with FS EFI partition or FAT32?

One of the ways of checking this out would be using the same live USB you used to install Fedora to go back into the live environment to check on the partitions you modified/created.

it is FAT 32

What is your disk / partition layout before and after Fedora installation?

can anyone help with this ?

It can be related to your system ‘BIOS’ setting.

Some UEFI firmware let user to select a UEFI boot entry for a specific OS - this by passing the GRUB2 menu completely.

In my mainboard, I can press F12 during boot up and access the boot menu. Then I can choose Windows or Fedora to boot.

Boot into the UEFI settings, check your boot priority and try access the boot menu to cross check.

Good to hear that there is progress regarding your issue.

For your setup, are you booting into multi-user.target (text mode) or GUI mode?

When you install Fedora, do you setup a password for the root account? It not, then you cannot do ‘su’ as it need the root password.

One way of doing it is
sudo su

It will prompt for your admin user password.
