Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Systems Management How can I prevent the second menu (grub) appearing in Ubuntu 14.04 (Timeout =0 doesn't do it)?
  • Starting with Windows 7 and 8, there must be a separate section used for the bootloader of the those systems. When you install a Linux OS, another section or partition is used for Grub. Both bootloaders are stored in something called a bios boot partition. These bootloaders are kept separate to keep one from overwriting the other. Windows has its own boot loader and linux has Grub.

    When installing linux on a windows 7 or 8 system, you are asked to create a separate bios bootloader partition for grub. You don't have to. Yet do not place any additional bootloaders in the bios partition used to boot windows. I would leave the boot setup as is.
