The installation goes fine, but when it comes to the GRUB installation, the installer tries to put it on the USB drive. For some reason, the usb drive is detected as /dev/sda and the HDD is at /dev/sdb.
I tried answering "no" to the "Install GRUB boot loader to the master boot record".

Scroll down the the line that starts "linux /boot/" and add to the end "mem=4096MB" and hit ctrl+x to boot with the modified settings.Once booted "free -m" should show if the missing memory is now recognized.
Around kernel version 3.14 my old linux system (fedora 19, P5B MB with Intel Core duo), which had been booting reliably for years, hung while booting at the "booting linux...." line. Nothing in log files. While debugging, I removed the "quiet" tag from the grub.cfg linux line, and voila it started booting normally again.
debian wheezy is only one OS on my an old netbook.
so I don't want grub appears at boot but I want a key like "Shift" or any to force grub show at boot.
how can I configur for it.
I know it is easy task but I messed up my /etc/default/grub and a bit confused with many posts mostly on ubuntu forums.
I did like this
i'm just new with linux and basically what i need to do is that I have an installer (an application) that supports CentOS 6.0-6.1. I really don't know what to do . my boss asked me to install this installer to CentOS 6.3 and it appears always platform is not supported etc etc. Our installer is depended on kernel it reads the current kernel used when boot.
