That is what I did a long time ago to get a custom splash screen. It worked perfectly for me.

ok this didn't actually work for me but i finally realized what i was doing wrong
while every tutorial has the (hd0,1) that didn't work for me instead i had to use
splashimage ()/ubuntu/disks/boot/grub/splashimages/image1.xpm.gz
as the full line for it lol
so anyone who has the same problem might be able to use that
splashimage ()/ubuntu/disks
that in place of the (hd0,1) works but only if it shows that is the root

Glad to see that you were able to work out a fix for it!

Talk to you (hopefully) on Thursday night in IRC.
