The user ran "boot-repair" to produce a boot report, available at

He produced other reports, to show he had performed the modifications
which he had been suggested to do, but these reports would not provide
you with valuable additional pieces of information.

We are in a great confusion on what is happening. We have even not been
able to prove the BIOS released control to grub. For instance, grub did
not display any message on the screen even after the grub.cfg file had
been renamed.

We followed several tracks, which lead nowhere.
