There may be times that a user must add a specialized grub parameter in order to overcome an issue.
The purpose of this guide is not to provide parameters, as that would be a case by case basis. It is to provide a guide on how to add one.
To add a parameter, in a terminal (TTY, Recovery Prompt or Terminal Emulator) run:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
Arrow key down to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" and place your parameter within the quotation tags. For example if you are adding the
nomodeset parameter, it would look like:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
Once the parameter is added, tap
ctrl+x to exit the nano editor.
Then tap the
y key to say yes to save.
Finally, tap the
enter key to save the current configuration of the file.
With Grub, once this is done, you must update grub in order for the parameter to be used.
Run in terminal:
At this point, the new parameter is added and grub is updated. Job complete.
