This is caused by device mapping mismatch - I'd say you had a grub update when logged into Linux. Although I'd expect both to still work.
This only seems to happen in a mixed SATA/(E)IDE environment. I've had situations in multi-boot where only one of the Linux systems would successfully boot without intervention. FWIW I'd simply add a grub boot stanza to chainload the Win10 loader, and always just use the Linux disk. If Win10 complains (say during an update), simply change the load order for that update session.
Thank you for this information. This is a 6 year (approx.) old install of PCLinuxOS.
I've kept it updated through their program, Synaptic, one interesting side effect I found. My desktop state-of-the art when I installed the system in 2010.

I actually got to see the new KDE desktop default, applied to the new user. This was pointed out to me when I showed a screen print of my desktop, trying to
'troubleshoot something or other - I got asked why I hadn't kept my system up to date. Of course I had.
If I installed their latest dist. directly, what would I get now? Grub2? Does it work on older hardware? Can I update my existing system, to use it?
