Changing the Timeout in Grub 2

Hi All,

This post explains how to change the timeout from the default 10 seconds in Grub2 to some higher value.

Follow these steps:

1. sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
Find the Timeout field which is set to 10 and change it to some higher value like 500.

2. Save the file and run sudo update-grub

3. Finally reload the grub by the command sudo grub-install /dev/sda

Thats it...

Have a great day and tc,
Ananth S Gouri
