Can't get to BIOS

I installed 15.2 last night and now I can’t get to my BIOS. When I restart or shutdown and power on again it boots directly into grub 2, without a chance to press Fn+F2 to get into my BIOS. Not sure what’s happening here. Any thoughts? Fn+F2 does seem to switch to a more verbose logging during boot, not sure if that’s what’s conflicting?

If this is a UEFI booting system, you can try increasing the timeout:

efibootmgr -t 30

For traditional MBR booting, best consult your computer documentation.

Ok, so that definitely made a change, but the screen just stays black and doesn’t seem to respond to the key presses. When the timeout expires it just heads right into the grub menu.

Does the firmware give you a key you can use to get to the BIOS boot menu? Many computers use F12 for that. If you know the key, give it a try during that timeout.

Looks like I might need to edit the boot order?

BootCurrent: 0000
Timeout: 30 seconds
BootOrder: 0000,0019,001A,0013,001B,0014,0015,0016,0017,0018

Yes, it’s usually Fn+F2 to get into BIOS.

As root:

efibootmgr -n 10

That should take you to setup for the next boot. The “-n” only affects the next boot.

According to efibootmgr output, options 10 through 12 are inactive, so it likely won’t have any effect. It may also be the reason why setup is not offered (just guessing).
