I install GRML on my USB disk with the grml2usb tool. But when I boot from the USB, it first boots to a blank screen with boot: text on it. I must type the boot options myself to boot the system. I want it to boot to the system automatically.
How can I do it? I am new to GRML, and I checked their wiki, but did not find the solution.

    What are the things you have to type to boot the system?

  • It would be faster to ask the GRML people directly. They are pretty helpful. I'd first give the irc channel on freenode a shot, #grml. Alternatively you could try the mailing lists or issue tracker. Apr 3, 2011 at 13:50

Finally I found the problem is caused by syslinux.
You must have the right version to work with grml2usb. The best bet is to execute the grml2usb from the live system boot from the ISO. It must work, or blame the grml team :)
