Is there a way to prevent grub4 from listing pages of data on the screen when loading an OS?
It does not respond to the BIOS setting of 'quick', only Windows responds to this.

That data is not the boot loader, it is the OS in its initial stages of boot.

Edit the file "grub" in /etc/default (you will need to do this as 'root') ... I think this should work in your Mint install: "gksu gedit /etc/default/grub"

Look for the line--
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=

Add the following to the end of the line--
"quiet splash"

so it looks like this--
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

You may have other commands on that line so just add the "quiet splash" to the end of it. The quotes should enclose all the commands.

After editing the file you will need to run "sudo update-grub" to make it permanent.

Cinnamon uses xed as it's graphical editor. If something fails in start up it will make a noise so do correct any start up issues you may have.
