Sorry for asking this question again, asked it here a long time ago but didn't get any answers.

Since I setted up dual boot with Ubuntu and Windows 8 I have this "problem", grub menu shows up, if I press any key, everything freezes for about 2-5 seconds, after that everything works fine.

It's kind of annoying if I just want to select to boot windows and have to wait for "so long"

I couldn't find any answers, maybe someone knows how to fix this

  • I've never heard of that problem. You might try another EFI boot manager, at least to see if the problem persists with a different boot manager. Most EFIs provide a built-in boot manager you can access by pressing a function key at boot (which one varies between computers). There are also several other EFI boot loaders and managers for Linux, as noted on this page of mine. Most will require you to disable Secure Boot, but that might be worth it for a test. – Rod Smith Jul 30 '15 at 1:30
  • Same problem here with Linux Mint 17.3 and 18, except there's no need to press a key to freeze everything. – Clément Jul 15 '16 at 0:49

I believe this to be a Grub bug. I reported it at https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/1603261.
