I built a new box yesterday, and one of the things I'm seeing is about a
10 second lag between the bios clearing the screen after doing its thing,
and the "Loading Grub stage 2", which stays on screen for several seconds,
then its blanked for another 10 secs or so, and finally the grub 'choice'
menu comes up.

This is with the new grub.  One thing I had done on the previous mobo was
to have just one entry in /boot/grub/devices, but I see that has been
reset by something from /dev/sdb to /dev/sda, presumably by upgrading grub
this morning.

The bios is set to boot from the first ide, which is (hd0,0) I believe.

What can I post that might be of interest?, just ask.


Cheers, Gene
What new grub? As far as I am aware there has been no update to grub.

The one that's been sitting in updates for 2-3 months, scared to install it because my drive mapping was fubar on that biostar mobo with its outboard sata controller. Now on this asus, it seems like hd0,0 is indeed /dev/sda1, aka /boot in the label. Anyway, it worked.

I built a new computer this past spring using an ASUS MB and I had all kinds of issues. I checked and found that the MB didn't have the latest BIOS. In fact it was a few versions out of date.

Check the ASUS site for BIOS updates and see if that fixes this issue. It fixed almost all my issues. I am running F8.
