Please do this to get the grub menu visible (and un-blobby) again:


gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub

and change this line:

#GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480

to this:

GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480

Then save and exit the document.


Then do:


sudo update-grub

Thanks Hedge,

I will give this a try and see the end result and will post back again when I get the result.

Plus anyone who can help more than 1 user in a single post should receive a reward or something. Lol

This solution works great! However, I have to do 'sudo update-grub' after every kernel update. Does anyone know what the root cause of the issue is? And is there a fix to resolve this?

Thanks for the help everyone!

this sounds as if the grub isn't updating itself upon new kernel upgrades, try this command and tell me if this does the job.


sudo update-initramfs -u

and REBOOT


p.s. which tutorial did you use???
