I hope this helps to give you a better understanding of how to look. I made this very simple for you and other linux beginners. Please just pay it forward with kindness. These people are brilliant here, but they need to remember they were once beginners
Take notice to how y our system boots. As well all know this could be a different issue that others maybe discover. So some history, I go thru linux distros like i do socks. I wear a lot of different socks btw. I have a.full installation, no dual boot, that's the mppont of thisn lat top. But heres the kicker. I normally have no issues saving my data (home/user), but this time grub said it wouldn't install. I lost may data, and learned I am.capable of profanity I never knew I had... anyways Gurb acted like it wasnt installing, but it did. Then... someone dropped my laptop during an update....inirsmfs restored what I need it too, but here what followed
Power button-> Grub 2.02:
If you first boot and you get a red menu in regards to secure booting blah blah.. its vague. But it let's you click "okay" (vague as in the windows has a 3 -word title, and before clicking okay I think there may be 6 words (Haha complain if I'm wrong on the count, sorry).
Bottom line,.you boot into grub.
My case, check gurn to verify
You can enter cmpath=hd0 (in my case).
Ending in insmod normal
So I though about it and checked out my boot/efi/EFI directory
I rebooted to see what the damn BIOS SAID AND LOW AND BEHOLD:
ubuntu as boot priotiy
So I tried this....
Went into bios, and now demonize me or not I'm actually helping. Indont claim to be an expert but I along with everyone deserves respect not ignorance and comments from people who couldn't resolve this. Issues happen due to EFI-NOW this isnspeculative. Please fee free to comment on that statement.
Fom Grub type exit -> enter BIOs
Go to boot. NOTICE THE BOOT OPETIONS :
-youll likely see hd0, gpt2)/grub/boot
Urgh in my case insane ubuntu, so you can mock me for that Haha
Go to boot disable quiet boot if disabled, no problem
Now disable secure boot if applicable and if applicants select custome
If you can find it well it's the end of the WORLD!!!
Haha but seriously check out your boot priority... you'll likely see
Haha and I saw Ubuntu.
Now disable the obvious---> FOR ME UBUNTU
SAVE AND RESTART... THEN JUST BE HAPPY
PAY IT FORWARD WITH KINDNESS. THESE GINUSES SOMETIMES FORGET THAT PEOPLE DONT DESERVE TO BE DOWN RIGHT BULLIES TO.
