The default grub loader is always runing 10 second countdown before launching Ubuntu 14.04.
This is how it looks in etc/default/grub:
GRUB_DEFAULT=0 #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=$GRUB_TIMEOUT GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
The RECORDFAIL line was added in an atempt to fix this problem. It did not help.
After making any change
sudo update-grub is executed.
What could be causing this?
