[SOLVED] Howto get rid of GRUB bootmenu?
I am trying to make my system automatically boot beyond the GRUB menu.
The system will function as a server, but i have not manage to get it automatically boot Linux.
I have configured the default=0 and timeout=5, but still no luck.
I have also tried different distro's (Debian Lenny, Centos 5.4), always the same problem. (So probably a hardware configuration problem?)
The system is a AMD XP 6000+ with 1GB memory.
The system contains 1 SATA disk (500 GB) and 1 SATA DVD writer.
The system boots & runs without problems after hitting the enter key in the GRUB menu, but since it is meant to automatically restart after reboot this is not the desired behaviour.
I have read about some problems with GRUB:
Anyone knows how to skip the GRUB bootmenu or point me in the right direction of configuring another boot loader.
Only thing i need is autostart into my distro.
Thanks & Regards

It should boot with out pressing any key, so must ask did you remove any # sign in frount of the default and timeout entries ?
If it still does not work post menu., we might see some error.

# timeout will disable timeout and GRUB will not any OS unless User selects it manually.
Set timeout value to 0 and GRUB will load it instantly. In case it doesn't work, post the contents of grub.conf file here. There could be a typo in that file which is not letting timeout to take effect.

thank you all for your suggestions.
Unfortunately i could not response earlier because i was at the office and this is my personal server at home.
Yes i did. I also tried totally commenting out the timeout setting, all with no luck.
See my menu here after.
Here is my current menu:
default=0 timeout=0 splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz hiddenmenu title CentOS (2.6.18-164.10.1.el5) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.10.1.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet initrd /initrd-2.6.18-164.10.1.el5.img title CentOS (2.6.18-164.el5) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet initrd /initrd-2.6.18-164.el5.img

I have installed Ubuntu Server.
No problems with booting automatically into the system.
No idea what caused the problem with Debian & Centos, but for now i'm sticking with this distro.
Thanks for willing to help.
