Configuration options:

  • Scripts in /etc/grub.d
  • Configuration file at /etc/default/grub

Incorporating changes:

  • grub2-mkconfig (or grub-mkconfig for Grub v1) reads configurations and generates a new configuration for /boot/grub2 (or /boot/grub)

Show the grub2 screen

To show the grub2 screen, run sudo nano /etc/default/grub and comment out the line GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 and change the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="". Remember to run 'sudo update-grub' after any change to grub.

    • You can change the "hidden timeout" (no menu)
    • You can force the grub menu to show by commenting out the two GRUB_HIDDEN lines with a # at the beginning of the line
    • set the grub menu timeout (default is 10 seconds)
  3. sudo update-grub

Add a splash image

Follow the instruction at Note that Grub2 will search the image based on some priority and there are also some minor requirements on the images. To test

sudo apt-get install grub2-splashimages
sudo cp /usr/share/images/grub/Moraine_Lake_17092005.tga /boot/grub/
sudo update-grub

Boot into command line

  1. Highlight the first item (default) and press 'e' in the GRUB menu
  2. Navigate to the line that starts with ‘linux’, change the runlevel to 3 (at the end of the line). Level 3 means multi-user, command-line only system
