I installed Linux on a spare hard drive to use in another pc, but now I can’t get into the bios to switch back to my old hard drive with windows on it. Sometimes it just gives me a black screen, other times it has weird colourful graphics glitches all over the screen, and it sometimes has a screen with GNU something on it.

I can boot into linux perfectly fine from the hard drive I installed it on, but I’m kind of stuck in it

Thanks for confirming but for future reference can I ask that before you start any new thread that you first conclude any previous thread/s, it helps us keep the boards tidy + it frees up helpers time by them not having to ask for an update.

I don’t know what you mean by ”conclude”

Let the person who has been helping you know that you no longer need help and as a courtesy share the information of how the issue was resolved.
