Re: Grub2 menu customisation[SOLVED]

OK, I will not "update-grub". And will stop trying to improve my existing grub menu which already gives me access to ten working OSs (including MSWindows). The phantom OSs I have somehow generated are harmless and will be ignored. When MX19 is released I shall put it on a fresh drive with its own MB...

Re: Grub2 menu customisation

Thanks.
One more question: if I don't manage to remove them will they be resuscitated when I update-grub?
Or if I install another OS?

Re: Grub2 menu customisation

That's probably because, you have not disabled within the other Linux' grub-menu's the os-prober, and you might have a large number multiple entries for the identical boot-menu with different titles, though. You might quickly check the number of menuentries of your "controlling" grubmenu /boot/grub...

[SOLVED]Grub2 menu customisation

Discovered grub-customizer today (seems to be installed by default) and used it to remove 3 defunct entries from my grub menu :happy: .
Grub-customizer works very well - although it does take a long time.

Next problem: some of the menu entries are wrong - how can I edit them?

Re: Grub2 Menu.

Thanks, guys. I am now doing everything from the top menu item, but I have ended up with my main MX18 not appearing on the menu after reboot! Update: managed to get back in my normal MX18 by booting from the super grub2 disk - hope this is not the only way I can get back in :confused: ! fehlix, than...

Re: Grub2 Menu.

Editing grub.cfg as root and saving changes seems to work but then rebooting brings up the old menu unchanged.
