You should update the screen shots to remove all doubt.

Hi Stephen,

Grub 1 versions was 0.9.xx and Grub 2 versions are currently 1.99 and 2.00. You can check Grub 2 original packages from here.

But yes I can update this image too, if it’s problem. :)

I’ve tried this with Fedora 20 and this absolutely does NOT work.

I tried this just with Fedora 20 too and it works normally.

I don’t know how. I’m was trying to get Fedora Scientific to work: http://spins.fedoraproject.org/scientific-kde/

Hi Ed,

You can always boot Single user mode (runlevel 1) too. Then you shouldn’t have anything graphical loaded.
