Grub and boot broken after latest updates

KDE Neon used to work perfectly until the latest updates which broke grub. I do not see any grub screen anymore so i can’t access my Windows system. Laptop automatically boots to KDE Neon however, now it takes forever to start. It used to start pretty fast before.

These are not just minor regressions, they are major issues. Updates should be checked very carefully before being released like that.

I see, thanks for sharing.

I didn’t have problems, but if you need support, don’t hesitate to ask.

Same here no issues with kde neon.

In the meantime, if you need to access to windows just start your laptop with the bios/uefi button (which is dependant on your laptop manufacturer - my p/c is dell so it is f12) and start that way.

In Kubuntu, does /etc/default/grub have the line



If the line with GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER is commented out (with a # at the beginning) or it is set to true, the grub menu will only have one entry and the menu will be skipped. If that’s the case, make it set that to false and run sudo update-grub.

I suggest also setting GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu and GRUB_TIMEOUT=5 to avoid being left in the dark.

got back the grub and windows however, kde neon is still slower. is it because i used “sudo apt update” to update the system. i mean this is a debian derivative anyway so it shouldn’t be a problem right?
