    USB flashdrives are not meant for the running of OS/operating systems = too much writing of data on the drive will wear it out. They are meant for the storing of data , eg photos, documents, songs, movies, ISO files, etc which are write-once-and-read-only operations.

    Better to use an external USB harddrive, either HDD or SSD.

    At boot time stop at gParted then try booting both manually. If you can do it, then it's just a matter of tinkering with gParted's ini file.

    Have a look for a program, probably in System, that renews the grub boot up sequence. Normally the second Linux installed controls the grub loader.

    I will bet that you downloaded from the software store are utility called sweeper! Well it took me a long time to figure it out bet sweeper needs to be taken off of the software market.

    It deletes some critical file that keeps Linux from booting up and then you end up having to reinstall Linux.
