I have a Toshiba satellite laptop on which Windows Vista and Linux Mint (Sarah) are installed on.
Originally I could dual boot into either system I needed: when my computer started I could get into my BIOS the usual way by pressing F2 (Toshiba's suggested method).
Here is my problem: now when I boot the computer loads directly into Linux and entirely bypasses the boot manager or grub ( not sure the proper term ). Also at start up I am no longer able to enter BIOS by way of F2. I have run boot repair and may have made changes inadvertently that caused my problem.
I think but am not sure that somehow my system is not looking at ( or overlooking) the partition that Vista is located on. I know it is still there from reports I have run. I have researched this issue and read the help pages but I think my ignorance on the subject has caused this problem.
What I want to do is get back the ability to boot from either system and access the BIOS settings again.
