Boot into BIOS Setup with F10 and look for the boot options. Should be a way to swap the entries (I think F5/F6 or something? there should be a legend on the bottom of the screen)drdtyc wrote: ↑Sep 16th, 2019 12:55 pmMy final set up is Windows 10 (in a partition of about 42GB) and Xubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (in another of about 20GB). Everything runs fine so far.
Still having this problem of the laptop booting up automatically to Windows 10.
I have to press esc key during boot up and then press F9 key to manually select OS Boot Manager (UEFI) - Ubuntu which is the second entry in the selection menu. Incidentally OS Boot Manager (UEFI) - Windows is the first entry in that same selection menu. I cannot find a way to swap these two entries and save the revised sequence permanently.
Not a big deal. But I would love to hear anyone who has a dual OS set up like me and who could make this laptop to boot automatically to Ubuntu. Please do share if you can. Thanks!

F10 screen allows specifing booting order of devices only : laptop drive, USB drive, USB DVD etc. Both Windows 10 and Ubuntu are on the same device i.e. laptop drive. But I cannot change the order of booting on the same device.

There's no screen that looks something like this?: https://i.stack.imgur.com/cVqRT.pngdrdtyc wrote: ↑Sep 16th, 2019 2:53 pmF10 screen allows specifing booting order of devices only : laptop drive, USB drive, USB DVD etc. Both Windows 10 and Ubuntu are on the same device i.e. laptop drive.

In other words, I can choose to boot from laptop drive in F10 screen. But there is no submenu for me to alter the order of booting from Windows or Ubuntu. Thus Windows always boot up automatically.

My guess is that the promo code is tied to your email account, so you should be able to download the software and it will accept the promo for one year when activated.drdtyc wrote: ↑Sep 16th, 2019 7:34 pmI did not register Office 360 with my account when I first booted up this laptop in Windows 10 S mode.
I subsequently swiped the eMMC drive clean and installed Xubuntu as the only OS on it.
My latest and final set up was to have Windows 10 reinstalled using Windows 10 Media Creation Tool (W10MCT) downloaded from MS website and then installed Xubuntu as a second OS on the same eMMC drive.
As my Windows 10 has been installed using W10MCT. I have no more the original Office 360 app that came with Windows 10 S Mode.
My Windows account registered with Windows 10 on this laptop is the same account I used to order it from MicroSoft Store.
Is there a way to get back my 1 year subscription of Office 360 that came free of charge with this HP Stream 14?

I found chrome on linux runs a tad faster than on Windows 10.
