Grub2 is the new bootloader found on many recent Linux distributions. It is more difficult to configure than the old Grub where you can just edit /boot/grub/menu.lst. In Grub2 a couple of scripts are executed in order to create a configuration.
The file /etc/default/grub contains general settings for the menu. By default no menu is shown if only 1 operating system is installed, even if this operating system has more than 1 kernel to choose from. To display a menu anyway, comment out GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT (insert a # at the beginning of the line).

set menu_color_normal=white/black set menu_color_highlight=black/light-gray
set menu_color_normal=white/blue set menu_color_highlight=blue/white
