  • How are you doing it "manually"? What does show up, if you don't? – Michal Polovka Oct 16 '16 at 10:52
  • I hold shift when my laptop logo pops up – Naiem da Legend Oct 16 '16 at 10:52
  • And if I don't it just boots into Ubuntu – Naiem da Legend Oct 16 '16 at 10:53
  • Please, execute cat /etc/default/grub and edit your question with output – Michal Polovka Oct 16 '16 at 10:55
  • What you want to do is not to "load GRUB", it is to show the GRUB menu. – fkraiem Oct 16 '16 at 10:55

You'll need to edit your /etc/default/grub file. Open terminal and type: sudo nano /etc/default/grub (or replace by your favourite editor)

Place "#" at the start of line GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0, then simply run sudo update-grub.

  • Ok I'm in terminal I put # in front of GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 now how do I save it – Naiem da Legend Oct 16 '16 at 13:09
  • Never mind I found the solution and thanks a million @Erman – Naiem da Legend Oct 16 '16 at 13:13
