Force Grub menu at boot (resolved)

Hi, is it possible to force the display of the Grub menu at boot? I am using Mint 13 64bit.

Normally you’d just hit and hold the SHIFT key at boot time (immediately after the BIOS POST screen) to display the GRUB menu, but if you want it displayed at EVERY boot without user intervention …

OK, to display the GRUB menu at every boot … run:

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

Find the line that reads:-


and comment it out … so it now reads:-


SAVE the file, and run:

sudo update-grub

The above edit to /etc/default/grub will have made the GRUB menu display at each boot … BUT … the countdown timer to booting the default OS will still be governed by the line:-


If you want to stop the countdown timer completely … change that lines value to “-1” … so it now reads:-


SAVE the file, and run:

sudo update-grub

Thanks for the info…
