Yesterday i received my Dell bios update from software app . I updated it and it was successful but now when i started my laptop. It gets stuck at the Dell logo and does nothing
As shown above. But the intresting fact is that that i was playing games before all this happen today. After Playing i shuttedown the laptop and after an small break i came back and to my surprise i was not able to boot . So i tired getting in bios same issue gets stuck at preparing one time boot menu and i somehow entered bios menu and another shocking thing i saw . Leaving my SSD no opreting system was detected. I even reseted my bios settings.. after all this i waited for sometime and few mins latter i saw the zorin os in bios but named Ubuntu. I clicked on it and was booted in zorin os . Just for testing i switched off my laptop again and started it same no is booting . Same old Dell logo . With no sigh of Zorin OS after a min zorin logo comes up and boots but why is there a dely and why all this happened ?
I used to have a Dell laptop a few years ago but stopped using it because I became suspicious of too many firmware updates. Frequent firmware updates should not be done because they can cause new problems.
I guess same happened with me
That is normal mine always shows Zorin as Ubuntu in my BIOS menu ....
But whats the solution to the problems
Do you have access to Dell support?
I was merely replying to his statement that Zorin shows up as Ubuntu and not Zorn .... I didn't want him to be concerned abut Zorin not showing up in his BIOS
I don't have a Dell .... mine are Asus and Acer .... so I have no solution for Dell
Why are you so sure that it was a BIOS update and not some GRUB issue ?
Correlation does not mean causation.
I will close the topic as zorin os started creating many issues like
1: software app shows unable to install or uninstall but the apps getting installed.
2: zorin started to glitch up like after playing a game the display was not able to go to it's original resulution
And much more . The current update is that i am using win 11 now on that laptop and zorin is on another laptop as i want a Linux os tooo.
