os-prober is not returning anything, which is odd...

Post outputs
Code:
# fdisk -l
Code:
# parted -l
Code:
# df -h

Assuming /dev/sdb1 is your win install, mount /dev/sdb1 somewhere then run os-prober && update-grub again

Sorry, theoutputs took so long to get back to you, and is such a mess. I did use the lower case "L" in the above command.

Thanks,

Please use code-tags (see my signature for information about that) for posting code or output of commands.

TobiSDG: Sorry, I didn't mean to step on anybody's toes or rustle their feathers. I'm just a "newbie" on a newbie forum. I will stay off site until I learn
more, enough to ask better questions and understand the answers.

Thanks,

I'm sorry, but I don't know how to execute the commands you asked for, yet.
I am going to try to send a screen shot which I hope will help. I am really a newbie, but I want to learn.

I can't figure nout how to get it to you.

No need to get offended - code tags just make it a lot easier for everyone to understand your posts.

I think you should follow descendant_command's advice next. If you're not sure how to mount your windows partition using ntfs-3g search the forums.

I can't remember having to mount windows in order for os-prober to see it, but it's years since I had a windows partition.
