    stuck booting from HDD


    my laptop is not reading my keystrokes until I get to the GRUB menu. I have plugged in two different keyboards and I cant get into the BIOS. I am using a Dell Inspiron 5100.

    I want to change distros but im stuck booting from the HDD so if someone could point me to a grub entry to allow me to boot from a cd or usb stick i would appreciate it.

    Hi!

    Welcome to LF!

    Is the present distro working fine?
    We can try to repair or clear your HD from there if it does. What is it please?
