I think I need to get BIOS recovery USB to buy from HP or download from online? I can not believe hp support doesn't tell me about that now I figure out.

It sounds like your partitions got messed up when you either tried to shrink them or tried to install Linux. I recently installed linux mint without touching the partitions, what you do is choose the option to "install alongside Windows" and the installer will make the Linux partition for you, it will even give you an option to make the partition smaller or larger without messing anything up.

I just bought it from HP from staple last Jan in 2019 also my warranty is expired and expensive to pay cost to fix mine laptop for bios replacement... I hate window for a long time look like the window don't want me do boot Linux on my laptop..

I didn't mean take it to an installer to get it fixed, what I meant was that there is an option when installing linux mint that says "install alongside Windows". If you choose this option the linux partition will automatically be made for you and you don't have to mess with the partitions.

I know you can't do it now because your computer is busted, but when you get it fixed that's the easiest way to install Linux and preserve your Windows OS as well.

Have you tried going to a computer tech forum? There might be someone there able to help, it would be a shame if your laptop ended up in a garbage heap because of a failed installation.

There is a small problem of how you are going to place the download onto the laptop if it won't boot anything. if your lucky and you place the bios firmware onto a usb stick and you reboot and go into bios recovery it might "see" the software on the usb stick. i haven't done any bios updates in a long time (to a certain extent if you have a working computer but the bios software is old ,there is some risk) in your case you have nothing to lose

Yesterday , I check see if the bios need update .. I do it then there is no update. it already update on it. only I think might problem with admin password need enter password .. I try use

put some word in password for admin password if can reset or not. if not then that is possible problem with your hardware .

I tried these ( -nnoy , -vtdag , -e9137vcpe , I_ _ 74082824 are most failed to reset cmos for my hp laptop...

With so many Distros available these days, my advice is try them all and see which one you like.

I personally use Zorin 15. Which is a kind of windows feel but comes free with a good package.

But, use them all it will improve your Linux to ;-)
