Bootscreen after installation and now

Postby freedrivers on Sat Jan 26, 2008 12:08 pm

When i installed Mint 4 and boot for the 1st time a very cool boot screen appeared where you can see its linux Mint and choose the OS you want to start now... then i edited the grub menu.lst because i dont want to see memtest and recoverymode.. and i want an other timeout etc.
But after reboot the cool looking bootloader was gone and an old normal bland grub in blue with white text appeared.
WHOW DO I GET MY BOOTLOADER BACK?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Go to your home folder, open boot, open grub, select menu.lst (plain text file) - double-click to open. This gives a lot of advice and references, all commented-out from the script which (presumably!) controls the boot process.

Also see The Linux Documentation Project at: http://tldp.org/guides.html - and from that:
see Introduction to Linux - a Hands-on-Guide at: http://tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/index.html
which at Chapter 4 includes The Boot process - with a lot of description of Grub.

Hope this helps!
Yours hopefully -

Just found it via Grub Wiki.

We don't know what your menu.lst looked like before you edited it. Please post back here what your menu.lst looks like now after you edited it, and someone should be able to help you.

Just a reminder, please always do a back-up of any system files before you edit them.

cheers,
