Hi Spike,

These ideas of mine really need to be confirmed with a GRUB expert..

GRUB is a programme used to manage booting various operating systems,
including Linux. Its documentation can be found at:-

When you switch your computer on, some built-in software (old computers
have a BIOS for this, newer ones use UEFI) is run. It looks for a suitable
boot device from a list of potential boot drives. When Linux is involved,
the boot drive has GRUB installed on it - so when you switch a Linux
computer on, it runs:-
1. The BIOS/UEFI which then invokes
2. GRUB which in turn then invokes
3. A Linux Kernel

There is a file on your computer, /etc/default/grub and it might be the way
to go..

In particular the line:-
might need to have the word "quiet" removed.

And, to get an audio prompt, remove the '#' character in from of
# Uncomment to get a beep at grub start
#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

Then save the file and, to get your changes applied run:-
sudo update-grub

Note - I am _not_ a GRUB expert so you really need to get these ideas OKed
by someone who knows more than me.
