Woot! Community contributions under a useful license :-)

Painless installation - thanks!

The delay "loading boot menu" seems longer than it used to be. Perhaps
this is because I never paid attention or maybe because the "progress
bar" with the dots draws attention to it. Regardless this loader makes
a lot more sense to me than the original. I've always wanted to be
able to be into SUM && verbose logging or other combinations.

I tested this on a Lenovo G530 laptop and it seems to work fine with a
few different combinations as well as at the prompt.

Thanks for your work!
