I installed pop os recently and it works but i no longer have the option to boot back to Linux in bios. The boot partition is still there but it doesnt show up in my boot order. I've downloaded linux in another computer before and i didnt have this problem. I think it may have to do something with the fact that the pc is one of those hp office prebuilts and i dont think it was ment to duel boot but im not sure and i would rather not delete windows. Is there any way i can save it?

Switch off, then switch on holding shift key, this should bring up the grub menu, scroll down to pop [might say Ubuntu] advanced settings, and open, scroll down to fix broken packages and let it run [this fixes most problems]

in my advanced settings, it only gives me the option to boot into recovery mode. There is no option to fix broken packages. Do i need to update my grub or something?

I feel kind of dumb now - i went into recovery mode and i fixed the broken packages so i think that worked. Thanks so much

Just checked my boot options and windows still isnt there so i guess it didnt work?
