Ubuntu – How to remove/ignore most recent kernel


After the most recent kernel upgrade, my system hangs during boot. Since my machine seems especially persnickety about pulling up the grub menu*, what is the best way to set the previous kernel as the default until the next upgrade?

*I have to hit ESC at exactly the right moment, which usually means rebooting several times until I get it.

Choose the Kernel you wish to default to in the drop-down list and then click Close to complete.
