Archlinux boot question


I am new to Archlinux, so please bear with me. I have installed the OS onto a Hyper-V virtual machine, I managed to get Nginx and Postgres running, and it works wonderfully - fast, lean and mean!

However, starting the VM yields a splash screen with a bunch of options, of which the correct is: "Boot existing OS". How can I get the boot loader to bypass this option screen and go straight to boot? I assume that there is a *.conf file somewhere that needs to be fixed - but I do not know where.

Many thanks for your help!

This might help: Configure a Hyper-V VM for automatic startup

Not really. The question is not how to start a hyper-v VM. The question is: how to get the archlinux bootloader to boot straight into the OS, rather than offering a bunch of different boot choices.

Look at /etc/grub.d/00_header. At leat on my Arch box, this has parameters that control which boot entry is the default and the timeout for the splash screen. You can adjust the timeout and set a default entry to be automatically booted. I haven't needed to do this myself for Grub2 (only the older Grub), so you might want to check the documentation to make sure I have this right.

I think you need to unmount the iso.

Thanks Eddy. It was as simple as that! Even if this is the newbie forum, I do feel mightily foolish... :-)
