There's a question that I haven't figured out yet, and I'm throwing it out to the forum to see if there's an answer that solves this annoyance.
I'm running multiple OS's and Ubuntu was installed last. I terminated installs of the other installs at the bootloader point, and then installed Grub in the Ubuntu install (running Grub in Ubuntu last has always been more reliable in finding and arranging things for me for some odd reason...go figure).
Every distro works, but it's all in verbose. One would think that a simple
in /boot/grub/menu.lst would fix things, but it didn't.
in menu.lst was a no joy as well.
So, I guess my questions are:
1) Did my skipping the bootloader on each install, screw up the respective installs "making" of it's spashscreen?
2) If that's the case, would going back to each distro and finishing the loading of grub, directing it to Ubuntu's grub location get the splashscreens?
