GRUB boots into CLI instead of menu

I have two OSes on two different hard disks. On my 256GB SSD I am running Manjaro KDE and on my 1TB SSD Windows 10. In BIOS, the first device in the boot order is the M2 256 SSD/Manjaro KDE.

I have edited the /etc/default/grub file to:

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Manjaro"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash resume=UUID=5d178c61-fac8-46ec-8b66-37f2b97fce07 udev.log_priority=3"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

Output when I run sudo update-grub:

Yet whenever I restart the PC, the GRUB loader always open first. I want Manjaro to begin booting directly and not having to manually write exit every time the GRUB starts up.

If I understand you correctly, then you are looking to reverse the order of the items in the UEFI boot menu, is that correct? If so, please read… :arrow_down:

man efibootmgr

As an aside, you cannot disable GRUB except by removing it, but in that case, you’ll need another boot loader, and — no offense — setting that up is probably beyond your skill level.

Oh I forgot to include the actual question: No, I am looking for a way to skip the GRUB screen so that I don’t have to write exit every single time the PC boots up. When I turn on the PC, Manjaro should load up every time.

When GRUB opens, is it a menu that you can select different entries from or is it like a command line?

It’s command line and pressing enter does not do anything. I have to write exit to load up Manjaro.

The settings you have in your /etc/default/grub should cause you to automatically boot into Manjaro without interruption. The fact that you are seeing a CLI means that something has gone wrong with GRUB, that is your real issue here.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the knowledge required to help you further with this, but I have gone ahead and edited your title to make it easier for someone who does to find this thread.

Then you probably need to reinstall Grub2.

I think I have read (here in the forum, too) that setting the
GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
will have no effect when you have OS_PROBER enabled and have more than just one system that Grub is supposed to boot.
The menu will always be shown (hearsay, not knowledge or experience, as noted)

But your issue is not (just) the timeout setting.

Did you include all enabled options in /etc/default/grub ?

grep -v ^# /etc/default/grub

Strange behavior - that Grub apparently ends up in edit mode
Normally, one needs to press “E” at the Grub menu to even get there.
(if I understood your description correctly)

Can you post your complete /etc/default/grub.

Here’s my complete GRUB: View paste 4MEOO

Is some setting set wrong?

I’d first revert the change you made to GRUB_TIMEOUT and set it to 5 again (what it was)
update-grub
and see whether that has some effect

The file looks ok otherwise.



just FYI:

you uncommented
GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false
the original was:
#GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false

this had no effect because
this is the default already - you did not need to uncomment that - only if you wanted to change it to “true

I’d first revert the change you made to GRUB_TIMEOUT and set it to 5 again (what it was)
update-grub
and see whether that has some effect

The file looks ok otherwise.

No change after a grub-update and restart. Still need to manually write exit.

just FYI:

you uncommented
GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false
the original was:
#GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false

this had no effect because
this is the default already - you did not need to uncomment that - only if you wanted to change it to “true

I did not comment or uncomment any part of this file. I only changed the numbers of the first two lines.


Then you probably need to reinstall Grub2.

How do I do that?

mkay - for me (and in the .pacnew file I have) it is commented out
but I did not check this one with Manjaro - I’m at Arch (EOS) at the moment

doesn’t matter - was just some info and the line is ok in any case

so: please disregard/ignore what I said about that

This is what I get when I run the sudo update-grub command if it’s any help:

This is what I see every time I boot my PC:

Pressing keys won’t exit it. I need to write exit.

thats strange - it does not jive with what is in the config file you posted

but I can’t help - I only have one system and no experience with two or why os_prober would not work

So is there a specific way to fix the os_prober issue? Again I don’t know if it’s related to BIOS setting but considering the fact that this hard disk has only one OS I would imagine the existence of other OSes on other hard disks shouldn’t matter one bit to Manjaro.

Perhaps the system info and GRUB screen picture that I posted may help.

it’s not even sure that that is the issue
in fact it’s likely not

I think already said that I’m not even sure that I understood your description of the problem you have.

Why would you end up, without so much as a keystroke, in the grub rescue/edit mode
is the question I’d have.



ps:

perhaps try taking the picture of your monitor without a flash -
so there is actually something to see in the picture :grimacing:

the screen is bright enough by itself - the camera flash does not help … quite the contrary - as you can (not) see :grimacing:

and use an external service for the pic and link it here
just as you did with your grub config

I recommend to delete the one in your post above
it’s rather useless anyway

I am out of my depth here, so this is just speculation, but with so many drives (including a mix of MBR and GPT), I wonder if there are multiple copies of GRUB installed. That could explain why your GRUB doesn’t seem consistent with your settings.

Try setting it to 1 so it times out immediately or -1 to wait for a selection(multiboot etc). Being set to 0 may be why your sent to a shell.

Of course

update-grub
