    Disabling live USB boot menu


    Does anyone know how, with image customization or anything at all really, how to set up a USB installation of Ubuntu to bypass that screen which asks if you want to "Try" or "install" and go straight to the desktop or login screen?

    Assume this is for a situation in which the user wouldn't ever be installing, but only running from USB.

    i think you just need to set the default kernel/boot entry (represented by an integer) and a timeout value of 0 in the Grub config file. grub legacy and grub 2.0 differ on how to do this, and where their config files are located, but the documentation for them should spell it out clearly.

    Thanks atreyu, I'll give that a try. Normally this is the type of thing I'd just google, but I didn't know what to google until now.
