I did some searching and couldn't easily find a solution to this problem, here... So here it is.
My PC has Windows 10 and Mint 20 Cinnamon in different disks. It was booting Windows 10 before I installed Mint. No dual boot because I didn't go for manual partitioning.
I could try and get it to start from Windows 10 again, and reinstall Mint, this time doing things right, but I trust there is a simpler way. I'm having difficulty finding it!
All help is welcome.
Thanks.

Edit: attached & posted some info on my system.

Hi, part of me wants to tell you to just reinstall because there isn't a super easy way to go about this. However, if you are still interested in sticking with your install the way you have it you should be able to do grub repair from your Linux Mint live disk or however you installed Mint. If you need some help with that I would look at Grub2 Repair. Basically you will be repairing grub so that it looks for your windows hard drive to boot off of. If you have any questions about anything in the article just ask and I will help you.
