Is it possible to create something more sleek? So like all you see is two boxes, one with the Ubuntu logo and one with the Windows logo?

Any software for this or anything? Would it be something about the BIOS or what?

a relatively easy way is to use BURG, based on GRUB 2 but that's more of a superuser answer. If you actually want to delve into writing your own bootloader you should take a look at the grub and burg sources

I believe BRUG is what I want – FabianCook Jun 14 '12 at 11:19

Write own bootloader. See Grub source code or ReactOS Free loader.

How would I go about that? – FabianCook Jun 14 '12 at 10:53
This isn't a very feasible option for the OP. – bwDraco Jul 10 '12 at 0:17

depending on the version of grub you have, you might be able to use themes.

It is an experimental feature but it should be able to do what you want.

You will have to do quite a bit of googling though.

good luck :)

EDIT: If you just want to reduce the number of choices, that is fairly simple.

But again that depends on the version of grub you have.

you just need to make some changes to configuration files
