How to switch kernel on VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently using Azure VM with Ubuntu16. I have my own new Ubuntu 16 kernel installed with additional function added. However I am not able to switch to that kernel through changing the default setting in /etc/default/grub. However, when I start the machine I am not able to get the chance to enter the page for kernel selection. I wonder how can I switch the kernel in Azure VM.

  • You can switch kernels by installing another one (or the one you want is already installed), and change the Grub bootloader configuration.

    Here a link how to change the kernel selection while booting from GRUB:
