View Full Version : [ubuntu] grub 'mislabels' windows partitions
May 10th, 2010, 01:17 PM
I have upgraded to 10.04. Everything works but unfortunately
in grub the vista loader is shown as sda1 and the windows recovery environment as sda2 - in fact they are the other way around. As this is a computer shared by the family and I'd like to fix that.
Thanks in advance

I noticed a similar effect when I installed 10.04, but haven't got round to dealing with it yet.

thanks for your reply, hadn't noticed but the issue had been raised in an earlier thread here (http://georgia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1469755&page=1) but not really solved there either.

Put just the one windows entry in 40_custom and turn off osprober so it does not find you windows. You can turn it back on later if you want to:
I used drs305's command to limit ubuntu entries to two, turned off os_prober so it does not look for other systems and totally customized my 40_custom.
includes line to limit display to two

In /etc/default/grub I added this:
If you put your menu entry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom it will not be over written and will be at the end of your menu. Or you can copy it to 09_custom and make it executable and it will be at the top of your menu.
