Grub customization

Post by Rtep » Sun Jun 30, 2019 11:14 am

Hello, I need some help. After LM 19.1 Cinnamon installation on my dual boot computer, I customized GRUB2. I put image in it, resized fonts and resolution. I have two questions: How to position Windows OS to second position in grub boot order? Second: When booting and manually choosing OS to boot on, image I inserted to grub is sitting there for 9 second before next step. Just image, not whole grub. I like to eliminate that extra 9 seconds of waiting.Do any1 have any idea how to fix bought these things? Thanx for any help in advance.

How did you customize Grub? Did you use Grub Customizer or by other means?

No, I'm done with Grub Customizer. Now I'm doing it manually. Thanx for your reply.

I take it you hadn't used Grub Customizer after your 19.1 installation?

I wanted to ask that because after using Grub Customizer, it's very difficult to customize grub manually.

Unfortunately, I don't know much about grub customization.

Thanx a lot for your link. I'll definitely try every step from that tutorial...but what is missing is...I already have Linux as default on first line and I do not want to change it. What I want to change it is put Windows from #4 line to line #2. Did I missed that how-to there? Also that 9 second delay with image sitting there after I choose default is still BIG question. Thanx again. Do any1 know answer for my questions? Thanx.

Lots of those links are about 10 years old, most of them did not open. I'm reading and reading, but lots of settings/suggestions are clearly not applicable to LM 19.1 Cinnamon. Do any one already know how to fix my "problems"? Again, thanx for any info in advance.
