[SOLVED] How to edit boot loader menu?

Postby Ironhorse on Thu Feb 04, 2010 12:47 pm

I'm Running Mint 8, Helena - 64 bit.

I experimented for awhile with dual booting various other distros alongside Mint on my 2nd HDD. Well,I've finally figured out that Mint is the distro I like best, and don't run anything but Mint. However, I still have choices in the boot loader menu which point to programs which are no longer even present on my system. Is there a way I can edit the boot loader menu, and clean those choices out?

Hoping I posted this in the appropriate forum - feel free to relocate it if I didn't.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Oh geeze. That was so simple It's embarrassing. Just did it and rebooted, and voila! Thank you, Jeff!

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go bang my head against the wall for awhile...
