How to switch from ONIE Install Mode to Existing Cumulus Linux Boot Image 2.5.8?
I am using Quanta LB9 Management Switch.
Switch when it boots, it is not showing any boot option (GRUB,ONIE) when we press up arrow or down arrow

I am not sure I understand. Did you install the 2.5.8 binary via ONIE install mode?
The LB9 is a powerpc switch, and does not have GRUB. It uses uBoot, and the link shows.
Install mode is sticky, meaning if you boot into install mode, it wants to install a NOS. For troubleshooting from ONIE, it is better to enter rescue mode.
-> setenv onie_boot_reason rescue   -> run bootcmd
Depending on what version of ONIE you have installed, you can try this command to get out of onie install mode:
ONIE:/ # onie-boot-mode -o none  ONIE:/ # reboot
Thanks Jason. Let me try and get back if any issues
