Ok, grub2 devs, I can't figure this out. The splash screen that covers the scrolling text when booting up, no longer works! I've tried several different things, but have not run across a solution yet. What's the trick? Another user mentioned I should use linux16 rather than linux, but that gives me an error when I try it. Grub2 tells me I need to load a kernel first. I am running a 32-bit Linux on a 64-bit machine. When I tried to run the memory test, it gave me an error that I had to use linux16 for it, which indeed did work!

If you want to use the old linux loader with linux16 then you need to
use initrd16 too for the initrd.
Thanks Felix, this fix does work. I guess I don't fully understand what is going on, but certainly some changes have occurred with the two, linux16 & linux. Will linux work again in the future or is that reserved for 64 bit or above? I mean linux works, but just blocks the splash screen. Is it a matter of the splash screen setup needing a change? See, I think I'm confusing things because I don't understand what's going on with all that.

Anyway thanks,
