Managing/recovering boot system

Recommended Posts

Hi all, got a bit of a funny problem. It's been ages since my last install (still running 2010.0, it's been brilliant) and I can't remember how I set my boot menus :(

 

When I boot, I got through two GRUB menu's. And, I think my first grub menu isn't on the MBR IIRC.

 

Anyway, I know where the last GRUB menu files are, is there anyway I can determine where the first GRUB set up is?

 

For the new install I'm going to clean out my OS HDD, as I have my data on separate discs, and my OS disc is a mess, with like 6 distros on it, but I only ever use 2010.0 :thumbs:

 

Any help most appreciated

Hi

 

if you want to know where did you install GRUB... I normally just cat it's map

 

$cat /boot/grub/device.map

 

I don't know if this is any help for you,

 

Or I don't know if you meant to find the grub menu list and modify it?

Demonseth17, thanks for the reply. I'm not very good at explaining what I'm trying to do.

 

I think what I mean is, I know where the menu list is for the second grub menu, but I have no idea where it is for the first. I assume it's on one of my partitions, but I don't know which.

 

Does that help? Possibly not, I could have this whole idea messed up :wall:
