your losing me
exactly what appears at boot?
a timer?

type in "linux0"
without the quotes
at the bootline, before it boots
meaning set the timeout back to 5 or 10
which would be 50 or 100

I don't understand what your saying. What I can say is that the blue boot menu appears. Then sometimes it only gets to 1 and then freezes, or if I press enter then choose an option it freezes, how do I stop this is my question

I don't think it's freezing
it may be booting

does the little light start blinking in the usb
when you think it's freezing at boot?

It blinks a green light,yes. But does the 0 in Linux0 mean anything like the timeout is 0?

it should look similar to this

label linux0
menu label Boot
kernel /syslinux/vmlinuz0
append initrd=/syslinux/initrd0.img root=UUID=8836-09F7 rootfstype=vfat rw liveimg overlay=UUID=8836-09F7 quiet rhgb

I don't exactly know what you mean by the "First Entry" since the lines you put aren't what I'd consider the "first entry".So,I'll paste the whole thing.
