  grub refuses to display at all, but still runs

Status in grub2 package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  From when I've installed the 9/9/2011 daily build of Oneiric in a
  dual-boot setup alongside Natty on my desktop, I could not get grub to
  display at all for me. During the time when it should be showing, my
  monitor instead shows a blank screen with an "Input Not Supported"
  error box (see http://i.stack.imgur.com/RWNmV.jpg).

  When I don't do anything, Oneiric continues to boot as normal (with
  the exception of Plymouth not showing either, as described in Bug
  #850895). If I hold down the Shift key during boot, I still get the
  error screen and no grub, but boot won't continue until I press Enter,
  which suggests to me that grub is still running even if I can't see

  If this were a single-OS computer like it was before when I was only
  running Natty, this might not be a huge problem, but it is now that I
  am dual-booting with Oneiric, and I imagine it would also tick off a
  lot of people who dual-boot with Windows. I can't get into my Natty
  install anymore because of this.
