The method how you edit the file is irrelevant. You need write access to the file you want to alter and this is a must.
Since your /boot is a separate partition you have to check how it is mounted (or if it is mounted at all). Type mount and look at output, is /boot mounted rw?


boot, debian, grub, multibooting
