I think you are asking me about audio feedback in grub2. Yes, with grub-pc you can get a beep when the grub menu comes up. On debian unstable, which I am running, you edit /etc/default/grub. Uncomment the line that says 

Also uncomment the line that says:

GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1".
Save the file after making these changes.

Run update-grub.

When you reboot, the graphical interface will be disabled and you will hear a beep when the grub menu comes up.


May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to You, Lord,
my rock and my Redeemer.
(Psalm 19:14 HCSB)
