Is There A Way Or Means To Stop The GRUB Boot Screen Window From Appearing Frequently Since It Appears Often Now Since I Have Did A Ubuntu Distribution Upgrade?
Posted on 2012-03-28
Hello. I have a question to ask you regarding my Linux Ubuntu v.11.04 64-bit operating system.
A few days ago, I performed a distribution upgrade for my Ubuntu v.11.04 64-bit to v.11.10 64-bit successfully. It seems very strange since I have done this upgrade that in more instances than not (It is completely random too.) that “GRU GRUB version 1.99-12ubuntuS” window screen appears frequently as my Ubuntu is booting/loading prior to the Ubuntu login screen. While I did a clean install from a homemade DVD-ROM of Ubuntu v.11.04 64-bit, I never had the GRUB boot screen window appear when booting/loading into Ubuntu v.11.04 64-bit as I recall. Obviously, something is now triggering the GRUB boot screen window to appear often which to my understanding is not normal. I just select the first highlighted entry in the GRUB boot screen window (already highlighted/selected by default), and Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit boots and loads fine tot he Ubuntu login screen.
1. Why do you think this is happening regardless if you think or not the distribution upgrade may be the cause?
2. Is there a way or means to NOT have the “GRU GRUB version 1.99-12ubuntuS” window screen appear frequently? Please explain.
