My laptop screen broke, and I am having difficulty using an external monitor until my replacement lcd arrives. My HP Pavilion will not display to an external monitor until I am running an OS, but because of my grub2 loader I cannot get to an OS without seeing what I am doing.
My solution so far has been to connect my HD to an external enclosure and edit the grub on a friend's linux system. I cannot just use update-grub to change what I need because of this ad hoc rig. I lack the know-how to edit the grub files beyond editing the default/grub file and then updating, but I know this is possible.
Can anyone point me in the direction I must go next?
Thank you very much,
