View Full Version : [ubuntu] Password Files, no grub menu

February 8th, 2010, 02:41 PM

When I turned on my Ubuntu box today the automatic login would not authenticate. It will not authenticate with the password that I have been using either. I know I should be able to run recover at the GRUB menu but the Grub Menu never comes up, never has, my system boots off of the hard drive and immediately goes into Ubuntu without showing me the Grub Menu.

So what can I do short of a full reinstall?

Reboot your computer, immediately after POST hold down the Shift key. This should show you the grub menu.
