Re: Modifying GRUB2

menu.lst only applies to the original grub (legacy). For better or worse Ubuntu have elected to go with Grub2. All the above discourse stems from that decision.

Re: Modifying GRUB2

I don't think I'm going to be pushed into doing anything I don't want to. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a correct way that will keep the OS's I want updated but will eliminate the one I don't want. Meanwhile changing the .cfg file appears to be the simplest method. I understand that it's no...

Re: Modifying GRUB2

The easiest way might be to change the cfg file. I'll have to redo it every time grub2 gets updated - but that's not too hard compared to some accidentally hitting the MS back up and getting the whole system put back to square one.

Re: Modifying GRUB2

Good point, Viking. The only other OS I want available at the moment is Win7, so it may not be important. Another possibility is to change the name of the file or folder in the Image Storage partition and restore it using Live CD in the event that I need to restore. Unfortunately I'm not sure what O...

Re: Modifying GRUB2

I am beginning, slowly, to grasp Grub2, however I am going to proceed cautiously. It seems that if I make 30_os-prober non-executable I will only get Helena in the boot menu. (if there were no menu entries I could recover using the Live CD) If works out then I can put the Windows 7 entry in 40_custo...

Re: Modifying GRUB2

I'm not saying that I won't adopt Breaker's suggestion - just that i want to get a better feel for what I am doing before I do it! Perhaps if anybody has the ear of the authorities on Grub2, the point of this thread could be put to them.

Re: Modifying GRUB2

Thank you, Breaker. Unfortunately I don't have your expertise so I'll have to study this for a time before I venture in. There must be hundreds of others with the HP Pavilion who have the same problem that I have. In the past I thought that altering menu.lst was quite daring but in time it became ea...

Re: Modifying GRUB2

One other solution, which might seem a bit drastic, would be to delete the SYTEM_IMAGE partition. I have made copies already and tucked them safely away. I'm not sure what happens if somebody selects the 'Vista' option - would it proceed to reformat the entire disk and replace the original Win7/HP s...

Re: Modifying GRUB2

You have shown me where to find a very useful guide to Grub2. I have used an earlier version to change the menu colour and to eliminate 'Recovery Mode' and Memtest from the boot menu. However I can't find the option to remove other OS entries which was easily done in menu.lst. Any suggestions would ...

Re: Modifying GRUB2

I have an HP Pavilion and this appears to be the recovery partition of the HD. I've no idea why it's labelled 'Vista', however I don't want casual users to try to load it.

Modifying GRUB2

I get entries for Win7 and Vista on the boot menu. Does anyone know how to remove the Vista entry?

grub2

Gloria 7 works like a charm for my old Intel 845. However I have recently installed GRUB2. I can't see any advantages, though there are probably many, but since it is going to be a default in future, I thought I had better try it. initially there are no problems even though i preferred the look of t...

Re: Epson Printers, All In Ones, etc...check here!!!

I managed to get myCX8400 printing in Daryna by going to localhost:631 and downloading pipslite-1.0.2. unfortunately this does not work in Elyssa. However there is now a pipslite-1.0.3 which does the trick.
