    Please go to the site below and download the boot script. This will give you a zip file which should be extracted in the same directory as it was downloaded. This produces a folder which contains the script and a changelog file.
    You then need to cd to that directory in the terminal (for example
     cd Downloads/boot_info_script060
    if you downloaded it to your Downloads folder). You don't need to do that if you downloaded it to your home folder.
    Then enter
    sudo bash
    This will produce a results.txt file in the same directory as the downloaded boot script. Please copy the contents of that file and paste them in your next post between CODE tags. For CODE tags click on New Reply (not quick reply)and then click on the # symbol in the toolbar.
    This will give a full overview of your current system.
