ZorinOS is on Gparted, (/dev/sda4), but is missing from the Grub Menu.


Hey,

I am running a multi-boot of which ZorinOS would be one of them. However, it does not appear on the Grub Menu. It is displayed on Gparted as /dev/sda4.

Now, a week or so before I wanted to clear up that partition and apparently wiped it clean. I remember being asked to select 1 or 0, and like a fool I picked 0, and now that partition still shows on Gparted, but you don't see it on the Grub screen menu. It's there but not there.

My partitions are:

/dev/sda1 swap

/dev/sda2 Extended:

/dev/sda5 Mageia 5
/dev/sda6 PCLinuxOS
/dev/sda7 LinuxMint 17.3

/dev/sda 3 Manjaro Linux

/dev/sda4 Zorin0S 11.

What did I do wrong, and how can I fix it, if it can be fixed?

sorry, but what is the actual problem?
are you unable to boot into zorin? then why did you erase it?
or do you just want to get rid of a superfluous grub menu entry?
what is your main OS, the one that installed your grub menu? from that os, run "sudo update-grub", maybe that's all that's needed.

"Apparently?" Either you did or you didn't. What did you do, format it? That doesn't remove the partition. If formatted, then for all intents and purposes, the system is gone. If you want Zorin, reinstall to the same partition. If that's not it, explain exactly what you do want.

Hey Ondoho;

Initially, I wanted to have a clean/fresh, as it were, partition (/dev/sda4). I did not count on said partition not to show up on the Grub Menu, that is until now. I had not done anything other than reboot when, while using Google Chrome Unstable crashed as I was using Manjaro Linux. When the Grub Menu came up, there was ZorinOS between Manjaro and Mageia.

Manjaro Linux (/dev/sda3) is the main OS.

I did do an update/upgrade of Manjaro whether that had anything to the change I can not say with any certainty.

I can boot into ZorinOS from the Grub Menu. I am having issues with ZorinOS which I will address at the Zorin forum here.

Maybe while Manjaro was updating, Grub was updated as well? It was not something I intentionally did. I will take small welcome circumstances when I get them.

Yancek,

I installed ZorinOS 9.1 on the partition where it was originally located. It was that installation and a subsequent installation of ZorinOS 10, that did not show on the Grub Menu screen. Nor did my installation of ZorinOs 11, until several hours ago?

so everything is ok now?
i think i still didn't understand.
i'm missing the part where you tell us what your problem is; all you do is describe a situation (and confusingly so).
