Try this:

You might need to reboot.

I'm no expert, but I don't think disabling secure boot should cause a grub error.

I had issues as well on my Dell laptop, it was as simple as finding the "data" button (Typically one of the "F" keys on laptops)) (Mine was "PrtScr") while holding down my "Fn" key. For some reason durring the bootloader grub disables this and bluetooth. Mine was technically with Ubuntu, but thought maybe it would apply here too, and thought I'd add in case it could help someone from days of agony like I had.

Mods,

Might be best to break this off to it's own thread since it now has nothing to do with the OP's problem
