[Solved] GNU Grub menu on boot

Post by robards on Thu May 28, 2015 10:23 pm

I have done multiple installs after writing zero's to my hard drive and still seem to get the GNU Grub menu during boot, it gives me the ubuntu option, then ubuntu safe mode (or something of the like, I am not in front of it), then two different memtest options. There isn't any other OS on this system because I have wiped it. I have done a direct install from my boot usb and also installed from the live desktop. Each time I have wiped the drive before install. Any ideas? I am wiping the drive again with boot and nuke with 3 passes this time just to be sure. Had ElementaryOS on this before with no boot issues but my wife hated it so she wants a more widows like environment, so here I am. Thanks by the way!

How to install ChaletOS using btrfs file system?

Post by xyis1 on Thu May 28, 2015 10:55 pm

How to install ChaletOS using btrfs file system?



Grub doesn't recognize btrfs so create a 350 MB ext4 partition with label  [[  /boot  ]] and then create additional btrfs partitions as root [[[ / ]]] or root and home partitions [[[[ /     and  /home ]]]] Also if you want to backup data then you can create additional partition... If you backup data then if you install new ChaletOS - latest ... then you don't format the data partition or boot partition. Also create 4 GB swap file

partition    label         space

sda1          /boot         350 MB

sda2          /root          20-30 GB

sda3          /home        rest of the harddisk - 4 gb for swap GB

sda4          linux-swap    4 GB

Would you recommend the direct install or live?

I did as you stated and I still get the GNU Grub. In doing an upgrade I did see this in the terminal during the upgrade, again I did zero the drive 3 times before this latest install, these are the options that I see that are listed images:

Maybe I am confused. It does boot after the 5-10 seconds or so just fine on the first "ubuntu" option. I just wanted to to go directly to the desktop on boot without the extra time or having to hit a key.

I have the solution, it works for me, providing ChaletOS is the only operating system on your hard drive.

Firstly download gedit (text editor) from the Ubuntu software centre.

Once downloaded.

Open terminal, type or copy and paste the next line.

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

Enter your password.

Then find..

#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT="0"

Remove # from the beginning of the line to this.

GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT="0"


Then change.. GRUB_TIMEOUT=10

to

GRUB_TIMEOUT=0

click save at the top and exit.

then in the terminal type.

sudo update-grub

Reboot and your desktop should boot straight in. Smile

I did exactly as you instructed and when I did the update this happened:

Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
Searching for default file ... Generating /boot/grub/default file and setting the default boot entry to 0
Searching for GRUB installation directory ... found: /boot/grub
Testing for an existing GRUB menu.lst file ...

Could not find /boot/grub/menu.lst file. Would you like /boot/grub/menu.lst generated for you? (y/N) y
Searching for splash image ... none found, skipping ...
Found kernel: /memtest86+.bin
Found kernel: /vmlinuz-3.13.0-53-generic
Found kernel: /vmlinuz-3.13.0-48-generic
Found kernel: /memtest86+.bin
Updating /boot/grub/menu.lst ... done

Don't know if I should have created the menu.lst but did. Still did the same thing. I did the process again and still a no go. It really isn't that big of a deal but I don't have any other os on here and it would be cool just to boot to desktop or at least reduce the time of the grub.

Thanks Guys for all the suggestions and quick replies. I am sure this will get solved one way or another.

That's strange, i did the above instructions on 2 separate pc's and it worked fine. Is there something not right with your current installation perhaps?

It is very possible but I did re-download the iso and this is the fourth time I have installed. Zeroing the drive each time 3 passes with darik's boot and nuke. I don't mind wiping the drive again and trying something new? The os works just fine this is the only thing I can't seem to fix.

When you open the grub menu via terminal, it should look like this after you have made the alterations.

Thanks xyis1 I did copy and paste your grub but it still did the same thing. Thanks again guys for all the help. Is there a way to disable the Advanced Ubuntu option along with the two different mem test options in this menu? Or could the problem be elsewhere?

Re: [Solved] GNU Grub menu on boot

Post by robards on Mon Jun 01, 2015 10:37 pm

It seem to work changing this grub. I happen to stumble on this by browsing the files and found another grub. The one above must be the one the system is using because when I changed both time outs from 10 to 0 it worked. The only problem I have is that a quick error that shows but doesn't stop boot says, error can't find "?#". I will have to poke around a bit to see what is going on there. Thanks for all the help.

Installed on a dell laptop last night with no problems following Dits 1 instructions, booted perfectly, not sure what went down with the HP laptop. I think I somehow got confused with the /boot/grub vs the /etc/default/grub. Thanks to everyone!
