update-grub doesn't update grub
I installed 11.04 on a Thinkpad T61 that already had Windows installed. I installed using the Live CD and I did everything very standard and followed all the default recommendations. I shrank the existing Windows partition and installed Ubuntu alongside it as recommended.
Now I would like the computer to boot into Ubuntu without prompting me to choose the OS and without showing the grub menu.
There are two problems:
1. I cannot find clear instructions for grub 1.99 for disabling the grub menu with multiple-OSes
2. any changes I make either by editing the grub config file or by using grub-customerizer are ignored. None of my changes have any effect -- and I am running grub-update.
Anyone know what is going on, especially with issue #2? Thanks
