Hello everyone, after following the long procedure of installing Ubuntu in your PC, you might be getting relief.

Oops! It’s not showing Grub Menu. Seriously you might feeling like hell but don’t worry it’s not that much difficult.


Now, I am going to tell you how to show Grub Menu during booting time if Ubuntu is only installed on your PC.

GNU GRUB (short for GNU GRand Unified Bootloader) is a boot loader package from the GNU Project. GRUB is the reference implementation of the Free Software Foundation’s Multiboot Specification, which provides a user the choice to boot one of multiple operating systems installed on a computer or select a specific kernel configuration available on a particular operating system’s partitions.

Now, write a command to open the file named “grub” in the editor “gedit” as I like it the most.

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub


# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`

Modify the line highlighted with the bold red.

After that, to update the Grub write a command.

sudo update-grub

and then reboot your computer.


Isn’t it so easy. 😉
