Windows 10 boot loader refuses to boot Linux Mint


Recently, I successfully installed Linux Mint alongside Windows 10 on my Surface Pro (5th gen). Additional info: the entire Windows 10, EFI partition as well as /boot are located on the internal SSD, while the rest of the Linux Mint is located on a microSD Card I'm able to start both systems by

  1. changing the boot order under UEFI and rebooting
  2. choosing them under System Recovery > Use a device
  3. choosing them in GRUB2

But when I add a new entry to Windows Boot Loader using bcdedit, I get

Windows Boot Manager: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. (...) File: \EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi Status: 0xc000007b Info: The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors. (...) image of the mentioned above error message screen

Here are both "ubuntu" and "Linux Mint Secure Boot" entries I tried adding to boot loader.

How do I get Windows Boot Loader to boot Linux Mint?
