I think I hold down the esc key when booting up to enter BIOS- is that right?
Each desktop is different so I'm not sure which key will get you into the BIOS.
On my desktop it's the delete key but yours may be different.

Try the esc key and see what happens or refer to your motherboard book to find out how to get into the BIOS.

What exact make and model is your desktop?

Be back in a little while. I have to cook dinner.

My desktop is a Lenovo 310S 08ASR running Windows 10, with a useless Mint on a separate partition.

Looks like you would press the F1 or F2 key to get into the BIOS.If that doesn't work try holding down the FN + F2 after the Lenovo logo shows.

Once the Ubuntu install starts you can either install Ubuntu alongside of Windows if that's an option.

OR> you will have to choose 'something else' and delete the Mint partition.
Than from that free space from the old Mint partition make a new partition for your Ubuntu installation.

That sounds good.
I hate salmon with fresh spinach, tomatoes and carrots topped with swiss cheese and ranch dressing.

Let me see if I got this right.
I restart the computer. When the Lenovo logo appears I press and hold F1 or F2? Neither worked. Next I will try the FN + F1
None of that worked. It just goes to the startup for Mint. Mint is the automatic choice for the computer.

I know.. I was teasing you. Pacific salmon or atlantic? Farmed or wild caught. Salmon are a huge part of life in the Pacific Northwest... has been for thousands of years. Farmed salmon are messing up the ecosystem.

You mention in this other thread that you used Esc to successfully access your BIOS. Is that the same machine?

Yes it's the same machine. That is the first thing I tried but it didn't work this time. I'll try that again.

I again just tried holding the esc key after the Lenovo logo showed up and a GNU GRUB window opens.. whatever that is.. with lots of grub>'s. One for every time I kept holding esc?? I somehow remembered to type exit to get out of it.
