Ok, I know the title doesn't make any sense, but it was hard.

Anyways, I have a problem with multiple oses on my pc. This is what I got:

  • Windows 7
  • Fedora 15
  • Ubuntu 11.04

The problem is that when I first start my pc it shows a Fedora only menu which also says something like: 'Press any key to blablabla...'. If I just leave it there for 3 seconds it boots Fedora. When I press a key on my keyboard, it displays a menu with all my oses.

How can I throw the Fedora only menu in the ocean? I just want the menu with all my oses.

Oh, and do you say oses? I ain't that good in english he he.

I'm going with customizing your grub config and reinstalling grub2(not sure if the version issue in if they're using grub or grub2). I know ubuntu uses grub2 for some time now.

Is there a gui for that or do I have to do some super terminal hacking? – tbleckert May 31 '11 at 13:52
a gui exists but I've always done it from the terminal. if it deals with boot or kernel i just don't trust a gui for some reason. maybe I'm paranoid... – RobotHumans May 31 '11 at 14:05
@aking1012 - You're paranoid. :) – Shinrai May 31 '11 at 14:21
@Shinrai - thx for clearing that up :) – RobotHumans May 31 '11 at 16:17
Ok, but how do I do it then? :) – tbleckert May 31 '11 at 18:06
