Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP Envy Desktop (Product # J6N60AV#ABA)

I wanted to install dual boot Ubuntu Linux - it got installed but GRUB was not loading up - it was directly going into Windows 10. When i ran the boot-repair from Ubuntu liveUSB, boot-repair complained that I should not have legacy mode but UEFI mode in the BIOS. I did that - after that the computer provides 6 beeps but doesn't load...after doing that 6 beeps for multiple times finally it boots Windows 10.

I looked into this link:

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/6-beeps-on-startup-can-t-access-boot-options-b...

 

Even if i press ESC and F10 keys at the time of startup - it just beeps and after multiple beeps goes into Windows 10.

Unfortunately the BIOS is not updated for quite some time-no updates also available.

I have switched the Nvidia GTX 630 graphics card to onboard graphic - still the 6 beeps are coming. 

What should i do?

Any help or pointers?

 

Computer is out of warranty now.

I'm sorry that no one has replied to your post for so long -- but that's probably because HP does not provide Linux support.

 

IF you replace that with a Linux distro, or add a Linux distro, then you assume full responsibility for maintaining that -- including solving any problems with booting the other OS and/or installing the other OS.

Modern PCs with UEFI, instead of the older BIOS, are especially difficult to install because you have to go into the UEFI settings and make several changes before you can even boot from a USB stick -- and we are unable to assist in that work.

Your best bet for support with issues with Linux is to contact the support forum of the distro you are using.

 

Good Luck
