Cant get into BIOS and cant get boot options
« on: January 26, 2020, 11:14:27 am »
i installed mint then needed to reinstall windows and it PC wont boot.  Cant get into BIOS and cant get boot options.  if i tap F10 i get a menu to boot into ubuntu but it wont let me.  all other keys do nothing and it simply goes to splash screen and powers down and cycles like that until i tap F10 or unplug it.

Hi CryptiGod,

Did you install PeppermintOS or Linux Mint ??  :-\ And how did you previously get into the computer's BIOS ? If you do not remember, then check the manufacturer's site to see if they offer any suggestions or user manuals.

Hi CriptiGod, you should try boot repair. There are tutorials that will explain how to use it. Search the internet for "how to use boot repair in ubuntu".
What was I thinking?
