View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual Boot Menu

January 3rd, 2011, 07:29 PM

I have rebuilt my laptop to a dual boot of Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7 - if only iTunes would work under wine I wouldn't even have to worry about Windows, but that is the penalty for using an Apple iPod!

Anyway how do I go about about editing the boot options menu? Following the kernel upgrade in the Ubuntu updates I now have two entries for Ubuntu and would like to just tidy it up.

If it is risky let me know because I have the systems working just nice, and really wouldn't want to trash them just for something cosmetic.

As always thanks in advance to everyone who can point me in the right direction.

It is not a bad idea to keep two kernels because it offers another boot option if you encounter a problem. Some users would recommend this. The best way I have found to to remove old kernels is the the package cleaner application in Ubuntu Tweak.

Thanks for your advice. I think I will keep both kernals, like I said the system is running nicely.
