Ubuntu – Only show GRUB when requested

grub2

Can the GRUB be set to operate like Os X, where by it only shows when specifically requested by a start up key or command before retart?

Best Answer

Holding down SHIFT after your bios logo appears makes grub menu appear if it's hidden. To make it hidden you need to edit /etc/default/grub with your favourite editor and add the following or remove the # if already exists

GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true

save and quit, then run sudo update-grub
