I'd like to make grub by default load it's command line instead of automatically booting from it's list of options generated by update-grub.

How can I do this?

@richard How can I explain further? I want grub to by default to load it's command line instead of a set list of boot options. – user133987 Jul 16 '14 at 9:39
I didn't say I wanted grub to terminate and I have described what I wanted grub to in in the question, simply load it's command line by default. – user133987 Jul 16 '14 at 12:24
I do not understand what is wrong with "simply load the command line by default". – user133987 Jul 16 '14 at 17:03
@user133987 Don't pay attention to richard, he doesn't understand much. Your question was well phrased, but there may not be a good answer. One option for you might be to load grub as usual, but with no timeout. – Sepero Jul 16 '14 at 18:53
