(SOLVED ) Undo the changes done to grub2 by grub customizer?

Post by deepakdeshp » Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:53 pm

I have grub customizer installed. Is there any way to undo the changes done to grub2 by grub customizer?
I have Mint 18.3 and win 10 on a single disk as a dual boot.

That's good discussion. I will stay with GC until there is a grub problem .I will not try fixing something which isn't broken.

Reasonable decision, but you should realize that your bootloader now isn't as stable and reliable as it is by default.... So don't be surprised if a boot problem does arise in the future. Be prepared; backup your data regularly, etc.

I have been fortunate no incidence whatsoever about grub for 3 years.
Very sane advise about the back ups.

I had, also. But then my brother needed to be able to boot to a USB stick on a computer that didn't natively support it. That means he needed PLOP. So, I figured no problem, I'd just try adding PLOP to the boot menu on my computer, then explain to him how to do it. Big mistake. I am going to be moving from 17.3 to 18.3 soon, and will try again adding PLOP to the boot menu, without Grub Customizer!

You don't need PLOP.
I wrote a tutorial which includes instructions for booting a Mint .iso file on a flash drive, using the Grub menu on your hard drive.

I don't think he wanted to boot to a Mint iso on the hard drive. He wanted to boot something he has on a USB stick (maybe Tails). Or maybe several somethings. Nice tutorial though, and I bookmarked it for future reference.
