Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458536
Initial grub screen stays black, only appears when touching a key
Last modified: 2009-01-11 07:44:12 EST
Description of problem:
At boot, grub does not show "Booting <default OS> in xx seconds" but stays black. Also does not say "Grub loading" before that. When touching any key, the menu becomes visible and the countdown stops (as expected)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. See nothing appear, press any key to get menu
3. Select OS to boot from menu
Can boot, boot works correctly but if you're not fast enough you forgot grub is counting down.
Screen showing "Booting <default OS> in xx seconds" and counting down
Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTS 320 MB. 2 SATA HD. MBR is on /dev/sda, /boot and / are on /dev/sdb.
I have this bug but, press any key not appeared GRUB, and boot in the default kernel. The screen is black with an gray underscore.
To change the OS in boot, I have to change the OS default in grub.conf, I can't choice the OS in boot.
Uncomment the hiddenmenu in /etc/grub.conf. Works fine here.
I think that is "works as intended". See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats#GRUB
Wim, if you agree then please close this issue.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
