Get the startup menu to appear automatically without having to press esc on hp omen

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am running dual boot on my hp omen. Windows 10 and Ubuntu. I used to have it set to a staertup menu automatically where I could press F9 and pick between boot options. Since I updated the BIOS, I have to press esc on startup to get to this menu. I've searched the BIOS but cannot seem to find anything. How do I have the startup menu sutomatically apear without having to press esc on each startup? Thanks.

Hi

 

The sequence is POST, BIOS and BootLoader.

 

I multiboot and used GRUB-EFI from within SuSE Linux, NO F9 involved.

In my BIOS I have a Boot Manager Option and Suse has Priority over Windows.

 

Then this screen appears...

Biased to boot into Windows Boot Manager after 8 seconds. 

I can manually choose OpenSuSE, Debian or Lubuntu as alternatives.

 

The W10 original boot Manager still exists, and gives the possibily to use F8 or try my Recovery Drive.

Yet again F9 is not involved.

Did you have an option to use Grub when you installed Ubuntu?

Thanks for this! I had grub but I'm not sure exactly how it works. When I set it up sp grub pops up on startub, only ubuntu is avaliable. Both windows and Ubuntu are UEFI, so I'm not sure why W10 won't show up on my grub menu.

Hi

 

I dont like Ubuntu, and I hate, loathe and detest GrUB.

 

However... https://www.rodsbooks.com/efi-bootloaders/grub2.html

If you don’t want to edit the files by hand, you may be able to find graphical tools for customizing GRUB2 in your Linux distribution’s software repositories. The above method should work even on Linux distros where such tools aren’t easily available, or if you just have command-line access and want to do it by hand.

If in doubt please ask.
