Restoring pretty Grub screen in Fedora 19.

If, like me, you were an early adopter of Fedora 19, you may have upgraded from Fedora 18. If so, you might be seeing a black text screen for the grub 2 boot loader. It’s actually quite easy to get the pretty themed screen back if you want it. Just run this command:

yum install grub2-starfield-theme

This will restore the theme and you’ll see it at the next reboot. There is a bug that addresses this issue, but if you’re an early upgrader, you may have to bring in the fix manually.
