Force Ubuntu boot after power failure

Hello,

in this blog post I will show a little trick to avoid your Ubuntu installation got stuck on GRUB boot menu waiting for you to choose an option after a power failure.

To force Ubuntu boot you can edit your /etc/default/grub with your favourite text editor, e.g. running this command from your terminal:

nano /etc/default/grub

and then add this line in the file:

GRUB_RECORDFAIL_TIMEOUT=0

Afterwards, remember to run:

sudo update-grub

Next time your pc will have a power failure it will reboot without getting stuck on GRUB!
