These are the instructions I followedgrub-mkconfig -o boot/grub/grub.cfg grub-mkstandalone -o boot.efi -d usr/lib/grub/x86_64-efi -O x86_64-efi -C xz boot/grub/grub.cfgThen in osx:sudo bless --device /dev/disk0s4 --setBootI think that on initial installation I ran the command above as one and then last night ran it as two.

I seem to remember that some Live ISOs and USB installs are (or used to be) able to recognize installed operating systems on whatever PC they're used on, giving you the option to boot to the internal HD from GRUB on the Live ISO or USB. I seem to remember there was some small code that worked with GRUB Legacy. Is there a way to do this in GRUB 2?
Whenever I boot on Ubuntu, I see the entire GRUB menu by default. Is there a way I could make it simply auto-boot if uninterrupted within X seconds? I remember that this was the case on previous releases of Ubuntu, it would only show the GRUB menu if you held down a button during the boot.
How can I make GRUB do this by default and just get on with the boot process?
I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a friend's laptop, but I'm having problems during installation. I downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 and loaded it onto a USB drive and booted it successfully on the laptop. The installer seemed to work fine, but stops with an error when it tries to install GRUB.
Going through LFS 7.3 and about ready to make it bootable but Fedora's grub is giving me issue.
The plan was to share /boot between LFS and Fedora 18 as I have done in the past (been awhile since I ran LFS - LFS 4.something last time). Hell, I've shared /boot between Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu, and LFS.
