comment Make GRUB take entries for only 1 hard disk
You're right, I was able to deselect the specific lines in GRUB; I'm pretty sure though that when I install a new kernel on the other disk, there will be a new entry in GRUB for that next time an update-grub is issued. I guess I'll just have to manually exclude it each time. Anyway thanks, I think I'll accept this as an answer.

Yeah, I already saw this one; I could have unticked os-prober like in the example above, but that would also remove the Windows from the disc I want. So what I need to do in fact is disallow execution of the os-prober script and modify it a bit to do what I want (telling it to stop after the first disk it finds, for example, if that can be done).

Ah, I think I understand; I just have to disable the default 30_os-prober and write my own; I think I'll do that later. Thanks for the help guys!

I was going through the GRUB 30_os-prober file, and it uses the Linux os-prober program to get the list of devices. Any way to control that?

Thanks for your responses; I had seen the link pointed by Mitch, but it involves manually changing already existing entries, which I'm supposing means that I'll have to do it again after an upgrade of the kernel. What I wanted was some configuration or something like that which would make it permanent. I'm still going through the links given by @hazrpg though; maybe I'll find something.
