I have used linux mint 10 and 11 before and i loved it right up to the point where my last comps motherboard went poof. This time around I wanted to try linux mint debian. I still need windows for school for programs such as Autodesk Inventor, Matlab, and others...With this site i was able to successful dual-boot

Everything went well, (i had to change where the update source were coming from debian sources to linux mint debian source. but now updates flow easily) however after updating, there in a new addition to my GRUB 2 list (after windows bootloader)
"LinuxMint GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.0.0-1-amd64"and "LinuxMint GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.0.0-1-amd64 (recovery mode)" ...with the non-recovery mode being set as default, while it is booting it doesn't throw any apparent errors but once it is done "populating the dev list..." the screen blacks out and nothing pursues...(same happens with recovery mode). However I also have the options of "LinuxMint GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.39-2-amd64" and its recovery mode which work fine.
I was just wondering how i can go about fixing 3.0.0-1 or it I should just change it so 2.6.39-2 to be default (as it works)...and if i should do that how to do it...
I kinda don't like having to babysit my computer through its boot up to press the arrow key as a certain time so it would be nice to fix.
This may belong in the boot issues forum, I just posted here as I am a newbie.
So you guys have any ways i can fix this issue?
