  3. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    So that is a negative. The result was a frozen kind-of-backlighted-obviously-funtioning black screen and nothing more.
  4. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    Apologies to you also tea for one for disappearing, I still have never been able to get to or even see any trace of the grub menu EVER. I will try your command/code and post the results.
  5. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    Apologies for disappearing oldfrend, I became so frustrated that I abandoned the 'recovery operation'. I am going to try to digest and act upon your suggestions and will keep you informed.
  6. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    Sorry for not getting back to you about the power supply. It is an external brick putting out 19v @3.42A.

    It's running, as I type this, the PC with an internal SATA HDD.

    @oldfred @MAFoElffen @tea for one

    Good morning/afternoon/evening to you sirs,

    I have salvaged a SATA 1 Tb HDD which is installed in my wonderful Chinese mini PC.

    I have installed Ubuntu...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    I'm losing hope ladies and/or gentlemen. I can't thank you enough for all the help that you've proffered.

    I'm backing up all that I have on a 1 TB SATA external HDD to anything that's lying around...

    I have yes, that and a thousand other variations of key combinations.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    I just tried the live USB supergrubstick and it wouldn't boot up for some reason. I tried 2 different pen drives and burning the image with both Rufus and Etcher and no go :(
  11. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    I'm trying to digest the information on the supergrubdisk site. It looks scary although very intersting.

  13. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    I have never seen either the vendor's UEFI screen or the grub menu. When I booted the computer up for the first time it was already installed with Ubuntu 19.1 and I immediately tried to upgrade the...

    That is a dialog box saying that the screeen resolution is wrong; but it is. Yeah sorry for the quality of the videos.



    No, I have never seen the grub menu since these shenanigans started. The...

    The exact machine that I bought with the 8GB DDR4 512GB NVMe option and the Ryzen 5 3550H processor is in the link below. I asked for Ubuntu to be preinstalled and they put on version 19.1

  17. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    The command that you guys asked me to run in terminal came back absolutely as "EUFI".

    I made a couple of videos and I apologise for the poor lighting and quality (my wife and granddaughter are...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    I would have already done this if I could beg, borrow or steal an adapter such as you show. Alas.
  19. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    Yes I did some research also and found what appears to be the same SSD as I have. I wonder why they felt like they had to rebadge it though?
    ...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    The result is UEFI

    The link below goes to a video of what happens when I 'catch' DELETE when booting from a 20.04 USB drive. This is only possible when I have removed the SSD from the computer.

    @oldfred there is nothing that I have found on this page that is identical to what I have

  25. [ubuntu] Re: How to enter BIOS on a mini PC with AMD processor?

    I never saw the code that you mention above. I'm not sure how to recognise whether or not the live session was Legacy or UEFI ..... all I can say is that the PC boots OK with a live 20.04 USB key...
