Unable to enter GNU GRUB

HP Recommended

I have an HP machine with only Ubuntu installed. I want to boot into to a different kernel version.

Holding Shift during boot is not effective. Holding ESC however opens up another menu, not the usual GRUB menu with Ubuntu, Advanced Options for Ubuntu, Recovery Mode, etc.

It has options like:

F1 - System Configuration

F10 - ...

F11 - Boot Options

Enter - Default Startup

How do I enter the GNU GRUB Menu?

I also want to avoid modifying the grub file for now

HP does not provide Linux support.


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

Since you are using Ubuntu, go here:

Good Luck
