View Full Version : [SOLVED] I see no GRUB menu

I installed a fresh 10.04 and did a dist-upgrade so I have 2 kernels now.
The problem is I don't see (and have never seen) the GRUB menu when I boot.
There is only a black screen with a blinking cursor... then the bootsplash-image, and Ubuntu with the newest kernel comes up.
This is a problem because I want to see the GRUB menu for booting into an older kernel, recovery console etc.

I have /boot on a separate partition. And installed GRUB to the MBR during the Ubuntu installation.

My grub.cfg:

#

# It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
#

save_env saved_entry
set prev_saved_entry=
save_env prev_saved_entry
set boot_once=true
fi

function savedefault {
if [ -z ${boot_once} ]; then
saved_entry=${chosen}
save_env saved_entry
fi
}

function recordfail {
set recordfail=1
if [ -n ${have_grubenv} ]; then if [ -z ${boot_once} ]; then save_env recordfail; fi; fi
