    Re: HOWTO: Grub Menu Kernel Display Options

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I managed to get it up by renaming a backed up copy of menu.lst to grub.cfg.

    However, I don't have any options in the default operating systems box.

    I was originally doing some maintenance, and was going to use it to delete some old kernels from the list - I got sidetracked trying to solve why it wouldn't work.

    I can edit menu.lst manually, but it is definitely easier and safer if the startupmanager is a goer.

    Hi, does anyone reading this have a suggestion to remove what seems to be a duplicating process when i login to ubtunu.

    Basically after the ubuntu logo with the status bar completing its length, I am then told blow by blow what is happening to the laptop and the OS?

    This does seem to be an issue with the grum menu and kernel display?

    I think it's a matter of editing the "ro quiet" dialogue in the GRUB menu.lst to remove the "quiet" parameter.

    Back up the file before you do this.

    You may want to mention that you can install startupmanager from Synaptic Package Manager (much easier for those -- like me -- who don't like using command lines).

    I have a small question. It's not important, but I am curious:

    After installing Ubuntu, I installed and used startupmanager easily and successfully.

    Interestingly, my Vista system doesn't see Ubuntu (it did when I experimented with WUBI). Thus, I can't change the bootup options from Windows whether with msconfig or EasyBCD.

    It's not a problem, because I can do it from startupmanager in Ubuntu. I'm just curious as to why this is?
    To get windows to recognize your Linux partitions, you need to install a driver, depending on what file system you used EXT2, EXT3 or EXT4. Take a look at
    HTML Code:
    http://www.fs-driver.org/
    this file only works with EXT2. I'm not sure if their has been updates to the file for EXT3, or EXT4. I remember a file like this that allowed reading/writing EXT3 don't remember the name tho.

    Side note, doing this can cause problems, if you reboot windows because of what ever reason(BSOD). It will not safely unmount those partitions we all know what that means. It will cause increased fragmentation, at least this is what I experienced while using this method.
    Good luck

    Ext2Fsd supports ext2 and ext3.

    As far as I know, no Windows driver exists for ext4.

    Kudos to drs305! Many thanks for the great tutorial! It should become part of the howto, like Seisen said!

    Vector721,

    Thanks for the kind words. Even though I still maintain this thread there is a new GUI app for Grub 2 that is very comprehensive. It's called Grub Customizer.

    I wrote a guide for it as well, linked in my signature line. If StartUp-Manager isn't able to do what you want in Grub 2, Grub Customizer probably can.
