You need to edit your syslinux.cfg file and add/edit a line with a timeout parameter
This would give you a timeout of 20 seconds, the value is in 1/10ths of a second.
(please mark helpful/correct if it is)
well, try another solution.
Modify rc.local or local.sh (e.g. by WinSCP) adding this command:
where X specifies number of seconds for sleep...
Info about modify rc.local or local.sh find here:
Just to clarify, are you talking about the recovery/edit options when you boot from an installation ISO?
Are you able to get a screenshot or photo of the screen you mean?
I misunderstood your original post thinking you were still on ESX which had a Linux service console.
I just rebooted my virtual ESXi 5.1 host and don't see any option to edit boot options it goes straight into the kernel load.
