sorry for my english
im new to linux and decided to start with garuda
i want to try another garuda system and
i do not know how to enter boot menu

If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post.

Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.


IDK where is the problem. Boot menu, it opens by itself.


its a common question
i don't think you need inxi info..
to answer my question :disappointed:

do you even know what's a boot menu
i mean
if you have installed garuda properly the the boot menu will appear
boot menu is a screen opens up when you turn on ur computer to select which OS u wanna boot in
ok @William ?

You post your inxi, please edit your post.
It's a pain on cell phones and tablets to scroll the long inxi if the format is not correct.

Grub boot menu is



let's imagine you have dragonized edition
on dell laptop

what setups you should follow to do that

What's a "home" edition?

Last time, please edit your first post.

Everytime you take your vehicle in for engine work the first thing they request is to read your diagnostic codes from your cars electonic module. This is standard procedure for diagnosing any engine problems and they charge a pretty penny for this simple diagnostic step.

We request diagnostic outputs and do not charge hundreds of dollars to review the information. Simply put, we request this info to make support on the forum quicker for everyone involved.


Noted from inxi output: 2016 BIOS date

My personal bugaboo. :wink:
