So today I tried installing Ubuntu 17.10.1 alongside Windows, using the free tool called Wubi.
During the installation, my PC just randomly crashed, and booted into this GRUB-like shell.
And here are three problems that cause me to drive insane:
- The BIOS won't read my USB keyboard until Windows is booted, I've tried USB 2.0 keyboards, USB 3.0 keyboards, nothing works. Even the DELETE and Esc buttons don't work so I have no ability to enter the BIOS menu.
- Also, generic USB Flash Drives aren't being recognized, so there is no way for me to boot into an operating or Live Disk stored on the USB drive.
- I have no PS/2 keyboard, not even a PS/2 port.
My question is: How do I enter the BIOS without a keyboard or USB device? Though, the trouble actually started when I disabled the Secure Boot option in the BIOS, but since I have no way to enter the BIOS, I cannot re-enable this feature.
I know that my hard drives are still intact, because I created a partition on my Data drive, which is NOT my normal boot drive (C:). So my files should be intact.
I hope there is a solution suitable for my problem.
P.S.: I also have no ability to type into the
grub > prompt.
