I have recently installed ubuntu 9.10 desktop edition. I had to do manual shutdown pressing the power & reset button 2-3 times. So when ever I power on the system, the system waits at the boot menu till I hit enter. I think there may be some tricks so that I can skip the boot option and directly boot the system without needing to hit enter at the boot option?. Any help...
Install startup manager by running this command:
Then run startupmanager, and change the timeout to 0. This should work. HOWEVER!!! BE WARNED THAT THIS CAN MAKE IT HARD TO RECOVER FROM A DISASTER!!! The best way is to press enter before you boot, so then you can rescue your system easier, but you lose some convenience.
