Yeah, I'll let him know he can just copy it over the os:-

If the 3 operating systems are each on their own disk, have you tried just setting the drive on which MX is installed to first boot priority? This would work if each system installed Grub to the MBR of its drive which is not always going to happen. Usually it will install to the MBR of the first drive. Of course, it this is an EFI boot, that changes all. Since you have Mint installed on one drive, you should be able to get this information by going to the boot repair site below, using the 2nd option listed on that page to download using the ppa as it is kept more current, then select the Create BootInfo Summary option and look at the output.

No, I haven't but that is a good idea. Thanks yancek:-

The boot is set to /dev/sdc which Mint is on. MX-18 is on /dev/sdb:-
No, it's not an EFI boot.

Anyway, I'm not so sure that the owner wants to change the boot priority in the BIOS. He set it to /dev/sdc for a reason he told me.
Thanks for the link to the bootinfo summary:-

I found Grub Customizer here:

https://launchpad.net/~danielrichter...rub-customizer

However the owner of the machine doesn't want to add a repo via a ppa to his Mint 19.1 system.

Is there another application similar to Grub Customizer that he could use?

Grub Customizer is downloaded in the owners Programs directory.
Since it's late I'll help the owner install it tomorrow-

I haven't forgotten about this thread.

At the moment I have a bigger problem with Debian not booting correctly and have to help the owner fix that first.

Just have to have the time to find a good picture for the Grub Menu.
