I recently updated my device to use SSD and it is booting so fast, but I have this one annoying issue the press ESC key for startup menu.., this option is configured by default to 5 sec, and I want to minimize it to at least 2 sec. I used to know how to do this back when I was using Windows, but I didn't know how to do this here in Linux! I found this answer by @fossfreedom to configure the grub file and change the GRUB_TIMEOUT value to 2 or 3, but it was already 0 in my system!

This issue is caused by your bios. Your boot disc order may not be specified. So, you must manually select a boot disc to set the boot order on your bios settings.

make sure you select your new SSD on the boot option.
