I am running an AMD 3 core Phenom with 8gig of RAM and Ubuntu 11.10. Ever since I upgraded from 10.04 I have been unable to see GRUB at boot. My NVIDIA driver is installed and all my video, save the GRUB screen, is perfect. As a member of Geeks for Christ at my church I need to solve this issue before I install Ubuntu on another unit.
I did a fresh install of 10.04 on one unit I refurbed for a student and I found the, now lost, solution, but just like a Nubee, I did not record it in my notebook. I do recall that I did something to the xorg.conf but, at 66, I? having a senior moment and cannot recall the cure nor the syntax used.
Have you solved your problem by now ? Because I think it's happening to me now
