    Using the GRUB menu you can easily enter into your BIOS.

    How is the grub menu opened?

    You do not open the GRUB menu, it is a separate partition that boots up automatically when you turn on your computer.

    When booting up, the HP logo comes on and goes off so quickly, no key can be pressed quickly enough to get into the bios. Supergirl couldn't even do it. If pressing any key prior to the HP logo appearing, nothing happens. You stare at a black screen forever.

    When Ubuntu is up and running, gparted shows all settings. Changes can not be made due to all the HD's are running. See the following:

    Install GRUB then use the GRUB menu to enter into your BIOS.

    Confused.

    Grub is already installed.

    Then what does the GRUB menu show? One of the options besides Ubuntu, advanced Ubuntu, MEMTEST and the different kernels should be BIOS settings.

    Whar are all of the entries listed in the GRUB menu?

    Of course what you said about GPARTED is incorrect, I use GPARTED to modify my hard drives all the time, that is the purpose of GPARTED. Also consider adding a GRUB customizer to your Ubuntu installation to give you more booting options.

    You are correct, Rocky; I am wrong. I meant the HD you boot up on.
    Also, I never see grub when booting up. It goes through to my home screen.
