    Anyway, I err um, stumbled upon the fact that if I pressed the ESC key the menu would show. Figured out why that was in /etc/default/grub:
    Just needed to change this:
    Code:
    GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
    to this:
    Code:
    GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu
    Then everything worked like it should.
    Turns out my 18.04 install had this same issue. That should solve it and I updated the Wiki.
    If anyone has any problem on any version let me know.

    Hi Cavsfan - my old frankenbox finally fell over so I bit the bullet and went all new. This combo should last a week before obsolescence, it's that cutting edge

    Anyway, upon plugging in HDDs and booting I saw the same thing in the GRUB menu, very truncated. Luckily I remembered your post!

    Keep up the good work!

    Newer is always nice. Mine is a beast but, it's a few years old with a 4th gen i7.

    Glad I could help!
