Can't get into BIOS after installing Petra Mate

Post by dreamkatcha »

Hi,

Since installing Petra I can only seem to access my BIOS intermittently and the boot priority list is full of duplicates that even come back after deleting them. I'll press F12 and get the "please wait" message, but then it continues to boot into Mint. If I press all the F keys randomly on boot up, sometimes I'll be able to access the BIOS though that's hardly practical.

Any idea what I can do to fix this?

I'm not sure if this would be an issue directly related to having installed Mint. It almost sounds like your motherboard's ROM is either faulty or failing, considering you're having issues accessing the storage for your BIOS. You might try flashing your BIOS?
