BIOS is a function of the machine and is accessed before any OS loads.
sudo efibootmgr -o 7,2

If you are not using a laptop but a tower there is a back to bios button on the back of the tower.
Every time I boot I retry the F2 tapping and so far it did work once.andreap85 wrote:hi,
I'd like to know if and how you solved the problem?
I bought a chronos 7 and I installed LinuxMint13......I also deleted all the disk, deleting Microsoft Windows 7 and the recovery disk
now I can't accede to the BIOS even if I type F2 as I'm requested before starting LinuxMint13

let me know

In the book "Ubuntu Linux Toolbox" (page 201) I read about the "menu.lst"-file.
Thanks, I realize that and know it's off-topic from my original question, but found it strange that I never see any GRUB passing by when starting the desktop.srs5694 wrote:... Since either version of GRUB runs after the BIOS does its own boot-device scan, adjusting GRUB options won't help.
It's F2 alright - the button has worn out from trying I guess I'll still have to wait for my friend to do it for me - I'm not touching anything inside, like cables or jumpers. Ah, patience is such a virtue - I will report when it's solved.bigj231 wrote:...please don't randomly start puling jumpers. ...Alternatively, you can just start pressing the F2 key (or whatever you BIOS setup key is) as fast as possible as soon as you push the power button. If you miss the BIOS menu, just shut it off and repeat. Keep trying until you get lucky and catch it.
