    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!

    Grub on Bionic Beaver 18.04.5.

    Imgur changed, after clicking on the picture you have to right click on the next picture and right click view image in new tab to see it full size.
