    Ubuntu only boots at the second attempt

    Hi, i just started to use ubuntu, so forgive me for being noob

    I installed ubuntu in my desktop in a secondary disk. To do that i disconnected the main disk with windows 10 and successfully installed ubuntu.
    The thing is that now i can boot into windows normally only by powering the desktop, but when i try to boot ubuntu this happens:

    My steps:

    Turn desktop on;
    Press F2 to load bios;
    Choose the disk with ubuntu (only ubuntu);
    Grub 2.0 appears;
    Choose ubuntu;
    The purple screen shows up with the ubuntu logo but it stays in here. Sometimes the screen goes black but the logo get's back after a few seconds or by pressing Esc;
    Press the reset button and repeat the same process.

    But at the second attempt ubuntu will boot with no issues.

    May someone help me with this? Thank you

    Why do you have Grub? If the Win disc was disconnected, then there should be no Grub. I have the same set up here: turn on, hit F11 for boot order, choose correct disk, Xubuntu boots up (or Win10 depending on what I chose).

    I wouldn't bother removing grub; even if it doesn't get used, you may still come to grief removing it. It'll do no harm not to uninstall it, and it's a tiny program anyway.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    Audodave, is correct you should not have grub if you disconnected the main drive. F-11 should allow you to choose which drive you want to boot I also have the same setup
