Even though I didn't see any errors in syslog, this solution seems to have worked for me. Thanks!

Now I need to find out why! :)

FWIW, this worked for me too. Curiously, it took a few reboots to take effect.

Re: Update grub2 Without Reconfiguring

Because the way forward seems to come from the ubuntu forum, I've continued my quest there.

Re: Update grub2 Without Reconfiguring

I'm afraid refind is well beyond me. It also wouldn't stop grub2 from hosing sda1 when it upgrades (which, I agree, it shouldn't, but it sometimes does).

Re: Update grub2 Without Reconfiguring

...Is their an Ubuntu folder in the boot folder?... I don't think so; I get this: peter@WhiteElephant /mnt/EFI/Boot $ ls -la total 781 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Oct 26 2016 . drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 1024 Oct 25 2016 .. -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 672640 Nov 20 2010 bkpbootx64.efi.hidden -rwxr-xr-x 1 ro...

Re: Update grub2 Without Reconfiguring

Thank you both very much for your interest! The results of the commands are below (I think; I'm lousy at command-line stuff). It's probably obvious to you, but the 3001GB drive should be for Windows, and the 2000GB drive for Linux. There could be bits of EFI, grub and loaders all over the place as a...

Re: Update grub2 Without Reconfiguring

...Grub should not reinstall to the windows partition. Thanks mr_raider. This is indeed the issue; the only way to get the initial installation going was to physically disconnect the Windows drive. Unfortunately, when grub2 is updated, it seems to go through its installation process again. Last tim...

Re: Update grub2 Without Reconfiguring

Update grub2 Without Reconfiguring

I've got LM18.1 (and grub2) installed on D:, with Windows 7 on C:. I use the motherboard UEFI setup (F12) to select which OS to boot. This way, I figure my Windows and Linux installations are independent of each other; I don't want to start Windows via a Linux component or vice versa. Last time I al...
