    If you have already created a boot-repair report, then paste the URL link in this thread.

    Here is some more info https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Info

    You should run boot repair with the Create BootInfo Summary option then post the link you get when it finishes. When you open a thread, you should always post what you are using and the version such as Ubuntu 20.04, Kubuntu `18.04. Also indicate if it is the only OS or if you have a dual or multiboot system, which other OS's do you have. All this info should be in the boot repair output so the suggestion to post that link is the best option.

    Re: no boot linux

    You've got Zorin OS 15.3, which is not Ubuntu, but still based on Ubuntu 20.04. The kernel is a little behind, at 5.4.0-77, whilst Ubuntu 20.04 is at 5.4.0-80.

    As the screen flashes several times, then stays black, my guess is that the system boots, but has some graphics driver problem, causing a black screen. I don't know how Zorin OS handles graphics drivers. Maybe somebody around here knows. In any case, telling us a bit more about your graphics hardware may help.

    Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sda1/EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi file!
    Does this not work?

    Did the system ever work?
