If i ignore it, it will load Mint by default. This does get me into Mint without having to choose from grub.. but I didnt want to even see this grub boot loader at all. Cant i get rid of it since it's useless?
can i re-configure it to only count down for one second before it loads Mint?

I dont need such a system installed from Mint because I already have one that i prefer. i can simply add Mint and it's install partition to the software and Poof i will see the option to load mint along with my other OS's on startup.
I cannot find an option in the Mint 13 installer not to add the boot loader.

If you neglect this, you may end up with an unbootable system after a couple of upgrades, if the installer deletes older kernels.
