Anyone know how disable the
Grub loading...Welcome to Grub
dialog that appears for a split second before Grub2 loads? I cannot find anything on it and I am usually pretty good with finding things. I would like to shave that useless one second off of my boot if it is not needed.
A PKGBUILD for grub2-bios-ubuntu with no messages ('Welcome to Grub2... etc.' and 'loading') is now in AUR:
this thread seems to be getting a reply per year, so here's mine!
There are a few patches around to do this, but you need to recompile grub, which is unfortunate .
You could also try grub-shusher: it's a bit of a hack, but it basically modifies your grub binary so that the message is not displayed, without patching the source code.
You can find it here: https://github.com/ccontavalli/grub-shusher. I posted a more complete description of how to use it here: http://rabexc.org/posts/grub-shush
