I have a dual-boot system with Linux 12.04 and Windows 7. I use Windows Boot Manager, which I configured with EasyBCD through Windows.

Now, when I start up Ubuntu, GRUB appears, making me choose Ubuntu again. How can I disable GRUB?

I would like to disable Plymouth as well, because my resolution (1366x768) is not supported at all, and I already gave up trying to fix it.

Thank you very much!

Get grub customizer, go to Preferences, disable show menu, and click save.

You can't remove plymouth, but you can disable the splash. Remove the package "plymouth-label".

Can I unistall grub customizer after that? Is there another way? – m4nr Aug 24 '12 at 23:27
Yes, you can remove grub customizer after that. The other way is to manually edit /etc/grub/default, change GRUB_TIMEOUT to 0, and sudo update-grub. I usually recommend grub customizer bceause it is generally handy :) – Christopher Monsanto Aug 24 '12 at 23:44
If this works for you, could you accept my answer? – Christopher Monsanto Aug 25 '12 at 23:58
