OpenIndiana multiboot with : LMDE4, Devuan and W10


Hi

Here is the situation :
  1. Tried OpenIndiana liveDVD, I liked it.
  2. Decided to install it on a free partition. Other partitions are occupied by W10, LMDE4, Devuan
  3. Rebooted to try the new install. Worked great.
  4. The other partitions weren't present on the boot menu
  5. Decided to boot a LMDE4 LiveDVD so I can boot-repair. It went well, however, the OpenIndiana partition wasn't there
  6. I tried to seek a solution over the Internet. I saw a Solaris 10 menu entry. I did not implement it because it could be different.

So here the fdisk -l result :

Code:
root@linuxmintdebian:/home/joel# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 447,1 GiB, 480103981056 bytes, 937703088 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x5dd4086d

Device     Boot     Start       End   Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/sda1  *         2048   1126399   1124352   549M  7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2         1126400 526915111 525788712 250,7G  7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda3       526915584 528605183   1689600   825M 27 Hidden NTFS WinRE
/dev/sda4       528609278 937701375 409092098 195,1G  5 Extended
/dev/sda5       528609280 538427391   9818112   4,7G 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6       767168512 937701375 170532864  81,3G 83 Linux
/dev/sda7       651427840 767166463 115738624  55,2G 83 Linux
/dev/sda8       538427455 651427776 113000322  53,9G bf Solaris
I'm not a progrmmer, or a linux geek. My talent is limited to terminal update and grub-update...

Thank you!
