Dell Mini 9 Boot Hang
Dell Mini 9 Boot Hang

Running Ubuntu 10.04 UNR (Ubuntu Netbook Release) on my Dell Mini 9. Every time I booted up, Grub2 would hang right before the logon screen and I had to hit "Enter" to continue.

I found the following fixed this issue. "Boot Problems:recordfail"

Open the Grub file 00_header via

gksudo gedit /etc/grub.d/00_header

Look for

if [ ${recordfail} = 1 ]; then
set timeout=-1
set timeout=${GRUB_TIMEOUT}

Change it to

#if [ \${recordfail} = 1 ]; then
# set timeout=-1
set timeout=${GRUB_TIMEOUT}

Save the file and run

Code: sudo update-grub

Thanks for the fix!
