After reverting back from BURG to GNU GRUB2, I noticed that the purple Plymouth loading screen wasn't appearing until the very end of the boot-up process, when it flashed up for about a second.

Before this, the purple screen loaded with the Ubuntu logo and the dots at the bottom changing colour one by one. Now, after selecting Ubuntu on the GRUB2 menu, I see a black screen for a long time (probably while Ubuntu is booting in the background), and then the purple screen shows up for a second and the dots change colour all at once. Then, it takes me to the log-in screen.

This is really bugging me, and I'd be grateful if anyone could help. Thanks!

  • take a look here if you do everything right as instructed it will work. – JoKeR Jun 7 '14 at 12:34
  • @JohnnyEnglish I have the same problem but instructions you posted are 4 years old. Are those instructions valid for Ubuntu 14.04 too? – Alen Jun 7 '14 at 12:39
  • @Alen I've done it myself on 14.04 it worked for me :-) – JoKeR Jun 7 '14 at 12:45
  • the only thing is vbeinfo in provided script will not work anymore you'll have to enter dimensions blindly but that's not a big deal just enter e.g. 1024x768-24 it depends on your display parameters. – JoKeR Jun 7 '14 at 12:50

After a tiresome internet-searching session, I finally managed to find my answer here: https://askubuntu.com/a/79959/289337 Thanks for the replies though. (By the way, JohnnyEnglish's method didn't work for me).
