comment I may or may not have broken grub during a sudo apt-get upgrade
You need to select those two devices... Use space to select/deselect a device, select the two HDDs. Then hit OK.

Yeah, it'll ask you about the Linux command lines, you can hit enter through those. Then it'll ask you about installing grub.

You can get that back with dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc... It's worrying that for some reason grub couldn't install. Maybe you can get the actual error messages?

Is this what the question about installing grub looked like? i.stack.imgur.com/9d8yJ.png ? (Obviously, with different drives listed... and I have 5, you have 2...)

comment How to disable local file writes?
"every time new user check in their have to download /home/user's directory/ to ram from the network and it may take longer time to boot.". That's not how it works on Unix. It'll be an NFS (etc.) mount, and files will only be downloaded from the server when they're used. It doesn't work like it does on Windows, where the entire profile is downloaded.

@Tim dooes that mean the question MichaelHomer linked to answers your question? It doesn't sound like a duplicate to me, but if it answered your question then I guess it is.

Also, to try and get the boot menu, try holding down shift (starting slightly after the Dell screen appears) or repeatedly pressing escape. One of those should get you to the Grub menu
