Hi all,

I have a HP Pavilion x2 12-b020nr 12" Detachable Laptop 2 in 1.
Intel Core M3,
4 GB RAM,
128GB SSD

Currently dual booting with Windows 10 and Linux Mint

Overall trouble is that I need the keyboard attached to boot into Windows because Grub 2 is not Touch Screen capable.

I have been trying to figure out UEFI boot - but I might be FAR from a solution there and I am not sure that it is touchscreen either?? Pointers to simple how to and verification that it will work via touchscreen would help.

BUT - if that doesn't work or maybe in the meanwhile - I have been thinking about writing two versions of the menu inside grub. Then when shutting down either OS you could click on a script and choose which OS will be booted next. I would need scripts in both WIN 10 and Linux.

To add complexity to it all... My plan is to install Android X86 because it makes for a really nice tablet. I am thinking I will end up erasing the Win 10 setup since the SSD is so small. But don't worry about that yet.


OR... Is there another easy way?

Thanks in advance.
