That was it!
I restarted the computer and the GRUB is there, where I can choose Linux or Windows.
Many thanks Fehlix!

This may be something to tell the developers.

Please summarize your finding an post prefarable at https://bugs.mxlinux.org/,

so you will indirectly help others when it is finally fixed :number1:
Thanks

I opened bug report number 113 on 2019-06-13.
When will I know that they fixed it?
Because I decided not to install MX again until it is fixed.

The mxinstaller is currently tweaked ... not sure whether this fix is already included ... but good timing as I was just about to test the latest incarnation anyway ... :snail:

Seems to have been fixed with the latest installer. :happy:
Just tested a similar scenario as the one you have: Installing MX on a drive with an existing windows with Grub installation into the MBR.
The test: Will the installer change the existing boot flag on the Windows system partition?
Here the result after the installation:
Minstaller_Dual_Boot_flag.png
As you can see the boot flag did not change.
So the BIOS will see the bootflag as before and will offer to boot from that drive.
Note, most BIOS's would accept a bootflag on any partition, but some BIOS's are a bit picky,
so the implemented fix would help those BIOS's to see the drive as bootable.
The latest installer will shortly be available on MX testrepo, and soon also through normal installation and upgrade process. The installer is also available for direct download at this location:
64-bit: https://github.com/MX-Linux/gazelle-ins ... _amd64.deb
32-bit: https://github.com/MX-Linux/gazelle-ins ... 7_i386.deb

In theory, we should change it to "Resolved" when it is fixed. But things are moving very fast right now and Devs sometimes forget the paperwork...

Good news!
Thanks a lot for testing.
I'm not in a hurry, so I'll wait until it's officially available on MX website.

Fresh News: Today mine has been upgraded to 19.7 via update && upgrade command, then I had a look at MX Package Installer and saw it was in the Stable Repo. This is for 32 bit. If you like, just have a check..
When asking for help, please first : Menu => MX Tools => Quick System Info
Even no need to select & copy. The output will get in the clipboard automatically, just paste.


MX 18.3 - 32bit 5.2.8-antix.1-686-smp-pae
