Recently i installed GRUB2, everything is working fine. When my system is started my monitor is showing something like the following

"Minimal BASH-Like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible completions of a device/filename."

Press "Esc" key to enter the menu. Boot windows...

and when i press the Esc key it then shows the GRUB2 menu showing list of operating systems installed on my system

How the remove "Minimal BASH-Like line editing ...." text. I only need this line

Press "Esc" key to enter the menu. Boot windows...

Note: Both my WindowsXP and Fedora12 are working fine and loading with no problem.


That's not something configurable in the GRUB configuration files. You would need to recompile GRUB2. This string is defined in normal/main.c (the msg variable; see line 539 in the Ubuntu version; the Fedora version should be near but may not be on exactly the same line). Altering it might be as simple as changing that line and recompiling.

I highly recommend creating your own RPM package(s) with your modified source. That way you can still use your package manager to handle updates. See for example Packaging software with RPM.
