    Hey friends,

    I have just installed Linux Mint 17 Qiana Cinnamon on my Samsung RV509, i3, 3GB RAM, 300GB HDD Laptop. I have two OSs in dual boot on this system. The other one is Windows 7. Now I would like to reduce the timeout in dual boot options to micro seconds or less than a second, may be to 1/10th of a second, during startup. I have LM as the default OS.

    Can this be done?

    I would greatly appreciate any help in this regard.

    Thank you.

    The minimum Grub menu timeout is 1 second or just disable the menu.
