    You have windows too? I thought you didn't. If so, leave the 8 lines in 40_custom and save it as 06_custom and yes leave the default as 2.
    But do everything else I mentioned.

    Hah, that's an interesting misunderstanding.

    Yes, sorry I thought you didn't have Windows 7!
    Just copy exactly what you have back into the bottom of 06_custom

    Code:
    echo "Windows 7 (loader)" >&2 
    cat << EOF
    menuentry "Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)" {
        insmod ntfs
        set root='(hd0,1)'
        search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 01cb2416e6305a00
        chainloader +1
    }
    EOF
    Sorry for the confusion!

    Oh, and don't forget sudo update-grub

    It's alright, I'll keep the extra stuff on the bottom, just in case. Everything works just as it should. Thank you for the great tutorial.

    This is off topic, but do you know "Plymouth"? I'm interested in operating it. Can you point me in the correct direction?

    Is there a way to make the font bigger?

    I found this, but have not tried it. I am going to though.

    Code:
    grub-mkfont --help
    Usage: grub-mkfont [OPTIONS] FONT_FILES
    
    Options:
      -o, --output=FILE_NAME    set output file name
      --ascii-bitmaps           save only the ASCII bitmaps
      -i, --index=N             set face index
      -r, --range=A-B[,C-D]     set font range
      -n, --name=S              set font family name
      -s, --size=N              set font size
      -d, --desc=N              set font descent
      -c, --asce=N              set font ascent
      -b, --bold                convert to bold font
      -a, --force-autohint      force autohint
      --no-hinting              disable hinting
      --no-bitmap               ignore bitmap strikes when loading
      -h, --help                display this message and exit
      -V, --version             print version information and exit
      -v, --verbose             print verbose messages

    I was able to change the font and the size, but I am still learning about what is the best manner to do this.
    I changed the font to Comic_Sans_MS and that didn't work too well.

    I didn't really believe there was a way, but now I see how to do it, I just need some more time to perfect it.

    This will be added to the bottom of the tutorial as soon as I get it done.
