GRUB2 not seeing old distro when new distro is installed
I have an old debian distro installed on hard disk. The distro is on sda1 partition. I also have Win7 on a seperate hard disk which is on sdb1.
When I boot up, GRUB bootloader opens up and gives me the option to select either OS.
So I recently installed a new debian distro and put into my sda2 partition.
But now when I boot up, GRUB only sees the new distro in sda2 and I can't access the distro in sda1 or Win7 in sdb1.
On one thread someone said mounting the partitions and then using 'update-grub' will resolve the problem.
I tried it and re-booted, but GRUB still only offers the newly installed distro in sda2.
Can someone help please?
