Changing Grub menu entries

Post by russellz »

Hi,
Just bought a new laptop. It had Windoze 7 on it so I installed my usual Linux distro, however there were some problems with the wifi so I installed Mint 14 Mate 64 bit and that works flawlessly.

I now have a triple boot system and the Grub menu is a little complicated with too many options and I have to go to the advanced option to boot my other distro. Is there any way to alter the boot options? I can't find a menu.lst file to edit.

Thanks in advance and appologies if I have missed something obvious.

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

Thanks,
Looks like I have lots of reading to do. I'm used to Grub rather than Grub2.

The easy way... :wink:

Grub Customizer is a graphical settings manager for GRUB2 and BURG.

Among the Grub Customizer features are:
edit the menu entries (reorder, rename, add or remove entries)
change the default boot entry
change menu visibility and timeout
disable recovery entries
change GRUB resolution, menu colors or background image
GRUB repair & configuration using a Live CD
Advanced options like booting an ISO, changing kernel parameters and lots more

A new Grub Customizer version has been released today: 3.0, which brings the following new features:
entries can be moved free now
integrated settings dialog
new partition chooser
context menu
multi selection
trash instead of checkboxes
entry editor
graphical error handling
reset functionality
warning when trying to remove script - or system entries

Grub Customizer is considered a stable application, but be very careful when using it and make sure you know what you're doing! Messing with GRUB2/BURG can cause the system not to boot!

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
