grub suddenly drops all options but LMDE (solved)

Postby mfs2 on Thu Apr 28, 2011 6:00 am

have two hd's with LMDE on on and Ubuntu meerkat on the other. the grub menu was showing both options till yesterday when it had dropped the ubuntu options off the menu leaving LMDE. The other hd is there and can be mounted, but to boot it I'd have to change the boot sequence. I think everything is okay, but just wanted to report this curiosity.

LMDE just updated grub and this new v. has some issues viewtopic.php?f=141&t=67502&start=340#p414088

anyway while in LMDE you can try
Code: Select all
sudo os-prober

and see if grub picks the other install and after that
Code: Select all
sudo update-grub

with the other hdd plugged in and tells us the results
