I have only ubuntu-gnome 14.04 on my laptop when i am booting into my system some times only show's the grub. Any way I don't need the grub any more but, if I have to get into generic mode to reset my password then what should I do





GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian

    @TaylorBioniks good notice, I missed it when edited it, just re-edited – JoKeR Jun 6 '14 at 6:44

uncomment this line from your grub file:


then change your:





sudo update-grub

sudo reboot


You can backup your old settings from current grub file in case you will change your mind and want to use it again.
