Re: Grub2... Getting to it the long way

Yeah. I just got it last Friday and then today I got a notice from HP saying my warranty had expired 5.20.2015. Must be some kind of a time warp going on? I'm going to look into this more and thank you again.

Re: Grub2... Getting to it the long way

I was thinking. Huh? When I set Mint up. I set the boot partition to the efi partition. If I re-enable the secure boot would that be a crash right out of the gate?

Re: Grub2... Getting to it the long way

They do show an update. I really didn't want to go there in case it messes up what I have now, but I'll go ahead and get it hoping the update leaves me alone.
Thanks

Re: Grub2... Getting to it the long way

I saw nothing to disable repair. This is what I see when I open boot Options. The triangle. ubunt.png It's a little blurry, but I think you get the idea. When I get there, I tap F10 and it takes me from that back to the UEFI. I tap F10 again. It saves and right back to Win 8.1 again. It only gave me...

Re: Grub2... Getting to it the long way

I'll try to find it and you are most likely you're right and MS forbid. We don't want to do that. My laptop and I still have to bow to HP and MS. :twisted:

Re: Grub2... Getting to it the long way

I saw what you were talking about and I moved the ubuntu to the top with F5. F10 to save it and it came up with Starting Automatic repair. It started doing that and I shut it down.

Re: Grub2... Getting to it the long way

Whoops srs5694 you suck in there while I was posting. Is EasyUEFI like Easybcd? I downloaded it, but kinda hesitant using it. Will it mess me up if I do myself?
Thanks.

Re: Good ol' DELL Inspiron 15 2531 NO WIFI

No. Keeps coming up with Authorize, but I have checked and rechecked the line to connect and the pass is correct. Still no connection. Is there some way I can clean that up?

EDIT: That got it. I had two "S"'s together. One lower case and one upper case. I had them transposed.
Thank you very much! :D
