    Where do you boot, what HDD?
    Consider disabling fast sartup: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\System Settings
    In Ubuntu increase the time Grub menu is shown:
    Code:
    sudo -i gedit /etc/default/grub
    Set Grub TIMEOUT to 20.
    Code:
    sudo update-grub2
    With Leftshift key you should enter the Grub menu.
    About F9?

    Where do you boot, what HDD?

    Boot from SDA = 512gb SSD.


    Here is /etc/default/grub

    Also, I never see grub when booting up. It goes through to my home screen.

    Install GRUB like I have been explaining to you for a couple of days. It will really help you.

    You need to adjust your GRUB settings in order to enter your BIOS.

    Still no Grub menu? Try adding this then (#):
    Code:
    sudo -i gedit /etc/default/grub
    #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
    #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
    Code:
    sudo update-grub2
    Set the previous one back to 10 and you should see it for 10 seconds now.

    OK, we are getting somewhere. Grub opens with 3 options.
    1. Ubuntu
    2. Advanced settings.
    3. System Setup.

    1 opens ubuntu.
    2. Turns off computer.
    3 Turns off computer then restarts and repeats itself.

    Grub is in bad shape. Advanced setting gives the Kernels list even if you have one. I guess that System Setup is what you're looking at. Reinstalling Grub is an option, boot repair is another.

    Insert the Win Ten flash drive in Ubuntu, restart and press F9 should bring you to the boot sequence (HP), you should see the Windows Installer, but not the BIOS.

    Your SSD seems to boot too fast? I would try the F9 option and scratch Ubuntu to see if you can reach the BIOS. Ubuntu takes 5-7 minutes to install, dual boot after.

    Reinstall Grub via Synaptic? How is boot repair done?

    Do not have W10 flash drive. Have CD. Can not get to CD due to HP logo disappearing too fast.

    Only have an hour or so this am to work on this. Be back the afternoon.
