Temporary Method

  1. Boot your computer.
  2. If you normally see a GRUB menu, then wait for it to come up. If you don’t, then press and hold the Shift key while the computer boots, and your GRUB menu will come up.
  3. Use your arrow keys to select the kernel you use.
  4. Press the e key.
  5. Use your arrow keys to move to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line.
  6. Remove quiet from the line.
  7. Press the Ctrl and x keys at the same time to boot the computer.

Permanent Method

  1. Edit your /etc/default/grub file:
    • Kubuntu users type this command in a terminal window and press the Enter key:
    • kdesudo kate /etc/default/grub
    • Ubuntu users type this command in a terminal window and press the Enter key:
    • gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
  2. Find the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line.
    • Example:
    • GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
  3. Remove quiet from that line.
  4. Save and close the file.
  5. Update GRUB by typing this command in a terminal window and pressing the Enter key:
  6. sudo update-grub

  1. Good blog, I will try it on my Ubuntu.
    Will it work on Centos also?

    • Thanks! No idea whether it will work with CentOS. I’m not familiar with how they do things.
