So I installed Freya 0.3.2 and it works fine but every time I boot it goes into grub2 command line and I have to type "configfile /efi/grub/grub.cfg" and then select GNU/Linux to boot into Freya. Once I do that it works fine.

Would be much easier for me not to have to type that in every time I boot lol

It seems like your grub configuration is wrong. Open the configuration with:

> sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Compare these lines with your configuration:




If there're differences change them and save the file.

After that procedure update Grub with:

> sudo update-grub

Restart your computer and see the result.

  • The grub terminal=console line was missing so I added it, saved and then updated. Once I restarted it just booted into the blue UEFI key management screen which I cannot get past.

  • "GRUB_TERMINAL=console" needs to be uncommented with "#" like above. Try this: "sudo apt-get install --reinstall grub-efi" and "sudo apt-get update-grub". Look here: link
