Fedora 15 Grub2 Graphical Menu "Invisible" yet there
First, Hello! this is my first post/question/plea for guidance.
Ok, my issue is this. I have Fedora 15 x64 with Gnome-shell installed on a Toshiba Satelite L505 Laptop alongside Windows 7, and Ubuntu 11.04. Fedora was the last installation so it currently has the controls of the grub installation which is what I was going for. I upgraded to Grub2 (1.98 and then some). I did some hunting and found this guide:
I followed the instructions to the T (or atleast I thought I did) for writing and installing the demo theme on "Fedora 14" which worked without errors on 15. When I rebooted I got:
Welcome to Grub!
for about 1.5 seconds and then the background image for the theme showed up but no menu! I tried shift & Esc, nothing. I pressed enter and it booted fedora 15. this is where i got my first bright idea (First i should mention that the loading box images showed up after i hit enter but still no text). I rebooted again (knowing the order of what the grub menu would be if it were visible) and this time i hit the down arrow 5 times then hit enter, sure enough, and it booted windows. So I can interact with the menu but not "see" it. I checked the fonts they are all there and as much as i can tell they are not corrupted (being .pf2 and all). I'm out of ideas.
flash image is booting over the Text.... Need the image to go behind the text.... I really don't care what my boot image or grub2 screen looks like......
Burg --- this is a site that lists comments on users that didn't have success and what some did to make the Decorative Grub 2 boot loader to work...
Good Luck :)
PS Got away from changing boot loader images and even Grub images... When I installed Arch Linux... Comments when I can get Arch Linux to boot in 15 seconds from cold boot to desktop there is no reason to stair at a Grub Image all day... Since this has nothing to do with making my computer faster...
Do you know what the process is to do that? I've looked around and cannot find any solutions.
