    Re: Welcome to Grub!

    I am also noticing a Loading 'Ubuntu' message while the Grub background image is still on screen. It appears before the sparse file error message (which we get when using btrfs). I take this Loading Ubuntu message as an indication that Grub has located its grub.cfg file and has read it. I think that the loading Grub message would stay on screen longer if Grub could not locate grub.cfg. I wonder what message we would get if Grub could not find the partition the kernel was on or the kernel. I am not about to deliberately break a working install to find out. Perhaps this is all to do with Grub being more informative when things go wrong other than a Grub Rescue message.

    Regards.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Anyone else?

    I know it's not much but maybe there is still more fireworks to come LOL
    That's normal behavior, back when 7.04, 8.04 were released it did the same thing so it's nothing to worry about.

    It will drop you to the grub terminal.

    I had two installs where I had to use the grub rescue disk so far. I am not sure if it is due to the new Grub updates and those were on installs of ext4 + btrfs partitions, of course, btrfs getting bumped.
