GRUB2 loading message & menu

Two days ago, I installed Fedora 17 GNOME. When I start up my Asus 1015PX nextbook, a message quickly flashes:"GRUB loading. Welcome to GRUB. Error" I cannot read the error due to the flashing being so quick." Then GRUB Boot Menu appears with Fedora's name below. Then a screen quickly flashes "Booting Fedora. Loading Linux. Loading initial RAMdisk." Finally, Fedora starts up.

None of this occurred in Fedora 16 GNOME. Is this normal?

How to slow down the booting to enable reading of the messages?

Re: GRUB2 loading message & menu

As long as GRUB loads and you are not seeing any other problems with your system, you should be fine. To answer your question about the error, it is likely that the error is

error: file `/boot/grub2/locale/en.mo.gz' not found
