Default Invisable Grub

What about your /etc/default/grub?

Am 12.10.2011 22:03 schrieb Paul van der Vlis:

Hello,

I've installed Debian Squeeze on a new Supermicro server with X8DTU-F
mainboard. But Grub2 gives just a black screen. Only when I press the
arrow down key on the right moment and I wait a bit, I see Grub.

Somebody an idea what I could do to see Grub just the normal way?

With regards,
Paul.

Boot the system. Log in as root, and issue the command
$ update-grub
This should regenerate the boot menu and its configuration.

If this wouldn't work, Repeat the login as root, and try the following:
$ dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc

If it is not working with this method either, post the grub
configuration files here or on pastebin.

I allready tried both, but it does not help.

With files do you want?

I will add /boot/grub/grub.cfg and /etc/default/grub.

With regards,
Paul.

I did not change anything. Only tried
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480

But that did not fix te problem.

With regards,
Paul
