I have a hp pavilion desktop that had been happy running dual boot ubuntu and win10 and a Dell laptop likewise. Now, they have a gray screen blocking the display. By fumbling around I can usually, finally get one of the systems loaded and they run ok. I would love to have the startup screen return to allow system selection.

I am not, by any means, knowledgeable on a problem like this. I am trying "Boot-Repair-Disk" in the failsafe mode. On the HP, the message is, " Purge kernels the reinstall last kernel sda5(ins). This may require several minutes....

How many minutes?? or hours??. My patience to date has stopped after approx. 30-40 minutes watching the blue bar move back and forth. How long should I wait???

PLz offer advice and help.

I have not yet tried to re-install Grub from scratch for fear of doing more damage.

Thank you,
