I get forgetting the steps so here’s a reminder.
When you dualboot with windows and install windows *after* Linux you’ll lose the grub menu and get into the proper OS anymore.
That’s not ideal.
So here the steps to restore the grub bootloader after windows has removed it.
Get a Linux live USB/CD/DVD and start it.
Start a terminal and type this
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
sudo chroot /mnt
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
