DISCUSSION: Grub2 Introduction

A new la entry has been added:

Grub2 Introduction

Grub2 Introduction

There is a lot of great information on grub2 on this forum.

I wrote this up to give folks a flying start. This will not make you an expert but it will, hopefully, get you headed in the right direction.

Some people have trouble, right after installation, with other OS' being missing from the menu. The first thing to do for this is go to your terminal and;
sudo update-grub
Run this to have /boot/grub/grub.cfg output to your terminal to check it;
sudo grub-mkconfig
Grub2 is completely different from grub-legacy.
