  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Question Solved Pop doesn't see the other OS

Hi,
I recently installed PoP and am enjoying it overall. The lack of minimize buttons is kinda weird, but oh well it's ok. I went through the re-install grub article on their site but it didn't help. I have a fairly recent laptop running in BIOS mode, which I don't have to but it just came about. Anyhow, I ran Ubuntu 20.04 for quite a while and never had any bootloader problems. I also have Win10 on the unit which I occasionally have to use ;) For some reason, when I boot the machine I get no boot menu, no key press stops the boot, and it goes straight into Pop OS. The only way I can get into Win is to use the Super GRUB boot memstick. Has anyone else had this problem? The other odd thing is when running 'update-grub' it doesn't even find Win. So I'm a little confused. Ubuntu never had any problem.
Thanks,
Steve

Wow, thank you so much for that info! Sure enough after confirming it was in Legacy mode I ran os-prober and it did indeed add Win10 to GRUB. Now when I boot it brings up the GRUB menu as normal.

Thanks very much for your help!
