Ubuntu Grub not showing up on boot

andrew97andrew97 Posts: 1Member

Hello so I just got the acer swift 3 and I managed to install ubuntu on it. However whenever I start up the computer goes straight to the acer screen and doesn't load the grub boot menu. Also when I hit f12 to change my boot setting the only thing that shows up is the HDD(SSD). Does anyone know how to get the grub boot menu on this computer?

    Here's what I did (I don't have your computer model).

     

    I went in to UEFI settings and created a supervisor password.

    I made sure secure boot was enabled.

    I added Grub (grubx64.efi) to the trusted secure boot settings.

     

    I've tried to help about 6 different people but am 0h for 6.  So am not sure if my suggestion will help.

    this worked perfectly. Did exactly as you said and when I booted the grub loader worked. Was able to choose ubuntu to boot into. Thank you so much. You sir are a genius
