Grub graphics file missing - press a key to continue...

Postby Forestarius on Wed Sep 26, 2007 1:57 am

I just installed Celena on my old Dell 4100.

I partitioned the HD into /boot, /var, /usr, etc., in case that makes any difference for this problem.

On bootup it stalls with the following message:

"Grub Loading Stage 1.5.

GRUB loading, please wait...
graphics file "/etc/grub/message.mint" missing, press a key to continue..."

I can press the space key and then it boots fine, but would like to fix the error if possible.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thanks! It works now!

In my case I copied the message.mint file from /etc/grub to /boot/grub and edited down the menu.lst file there to read gfxmenu=/grub/message.mint and it worked.

Curiously when I first tried editing it to gfxmenu=/boot/grub/message.mint it did not work. The little details mean a lot. :lol:
