I tried to reinstall Parrot from an old 4.6 usb and it resulted in chaos on my machine.Downloaded fresh up to date version from the above link and all sweet and rosey.

  1. Boot and mount your Windows partition
  2. Run the following on the command line
sudo os-prober
  1. If your Windows installation was found, you can run:
sudo update-grub

Note that step 2 is just for your convenience. You could just mount the Windows partition and then run update-grub .

If the os-prober method above doesn’t work try adding a custom grub menu entry.

First two steps are for finding your <UUID> .

  1. Run lsblk and find the name of the row with /boot/efi

Example output (here the answer is sda2) :

sda           8:0    0   477G  0 disk 
├─sda1        8:1    0   450M  0 part 
├─sda2        8:2    0   100M  0 part /boot/efi
├─sda3        8:3    0    16M  0 part 
├─sda4        8:4    0    47G  0 part /windows
├─sda5        8:5    0 425,6G  0 part /
└─sda6        8:6    0   3,7G  0 part [SWAP]
mmcblk0     179:0    0  14,9G  0 disk 
└─mmcblk0p1 179:1    0  14,9G  0 part
  1. Run sudo blkid /dev/sdaX where sdaX is the answer from previous step ( sda2 in my case) .

Example output (here the answer is 58E4-427D) :

/dev/sda2: UUID="58E4-427D" TYPE="vfat" PARTLABEL="EFI system partition" PARTUUID="b81727be-ba90-5f8c-ab98-d3ec67778b7d"
  1. Add the following at the end of the file /etc/grub.d/40_custom :
menuentry "Windows 10" {  
     insmod ntfs  
     set root='(hd0,1)'  
     search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set <UUID>
     chainloader +1  
  1. Run sudo update-grub and reboot.

I downloaded latest version 4.9 but I’m facing same issue.

Dual boot not showing its always open the window 10

it may be the bios problem as well
have you installed on uefi or legacy system?

Same problem! I just installed parrot os 4.9, and installed grub at /dev/sda, but it doesn`t show GRUB, it goes to windows, or (if I change the boot settings) it says there are no boot options.
