I had the same issue with Xubuntu and found out that my suggested edit of the /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober file will fix the problem. From what I was able to find out from researching is that Ubuntu had edited 30_os-prober file to fix a flaw in grub2 for hidden the menu, unfortunately it hides the menu to well. This is the fix that I came up with ,and Zorin is based on Ubuntu so I was thing the fix would work for the op also. Oh one other thing, may need to comment out any lines that mention hiddenmenu in /etc/default/grub also before running update-grub.

grub hidden timeout
I think the first thread is best
http://askubuntu.com/questions/14809...ult-boot-entry
http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/g...mozTocId315265
Also if your system is running fine with the kernel that you're booting to I think that you should remove some of the others as all they're doing is consuming space.

Gentlemen, I read your last forum update several times and believe you're asking me to enter the following in a terminal window. Here's the output:


xam200@xam200-EX269AA-ABA-a1514n:~$ sudo cat /etc/default/grub
[sudo] password for xam200:
# If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update
# /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
# For full documentation of the options in this file, see:
# info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

# Uncomment to enable BadRAM filtering, modify to suit your needs
# This works with Linux (no patch required) and with any kernel that obtains
# the memory map information from GRUB (GNU Mach, kernel of FreeBSD ...)
#GRUB_BADRAM="0x01234567,0xfefefefe,0x89abcdef,0xefefefef"

# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
#GRUB_TERMINAL=console

#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true

# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries
#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"

# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start

GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/themes/Zorin/theme.txt
xam200@xam200-EX269AA-ABA-a1514n:~$

I don't understand this data. Do you have any further suggestions?

Thank you! xam200

Change this line
Code:
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
to this
Code:
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
in /etc/default/grub and change the last line of /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober from this
Code:
adjust_timeout
to this
Code:
#adjust_timeout
if it exist and then rerun update-grub.

I'm feeling really stupid asking this question but how do I change wording/edit contents in the terminal window? Typing from the keyboard doesn't change anything... Call me stupid but tell me the secret.

Looks like a solution might be at hand and I'm excited. Thanks again

The 'cat' command displays the contents of a file, no more.
'nano' is a command-line text editor. To move around in the file, use the arrow keys and page up/page down. Since it's in the terminal, clicking with the mouse won't do anything. Nano is fairly basic and lists common commands at the bottom of the terminal. Press CTRL+O to save, and CTRL+X to exit.
'gedit' will open a more familiar-looking text editor. It's basically like Notepad in Windows.

Hope this helps!
