comment Can't clean a full /boot because of unmet dependencies
I edited the answer, because of a typo. You need to remove the package. The abi-3.13.0-32-generic is not the package name. Instead use linux-image-3.13.0-32-generic . Use the same naming for other images.

comment Is there any method to download all the content of etc directory
Correct. For that reason is better to reinstall the Operating System, rather than copy it from the live CD(imho).

Probably this is because the UEFI implementation as @oldfred said above. Maybe you can't boot from the other HDD because of "Secure Boot" ? that's my guess.

And how you managed to show grub in first place ? Maybe you need to change the boot order in BIOS/UEFI ?

comment Why won't my USB headset show up in `lsusb` or `dmesg`?
Yes, but power only for what ? If that's the case, then look at sound settings and see if any "headphones" device is listed there.

Unplug the USB headset and run this command watch -n1 "dmesg | tail -n 30" . Keep the terminal open and plug the headset. Then copy-paste here the any messages.

If you have GPT, you can use gdisk instead. Also you must change other entries as well, insmod part_msdos to insmod part_gpt . Above example code is for MBR, not GPT. You can edit your question and add the results of parted command and also you can try both NTFS and msftres types with separate entries in 40_custom and see what is work.

The code goes to /etc/grub.d/40_custom , then sudo update-grub, but first try the automatic discover by mounting the Windows partition and running sudo update-grub. In any case, do not copy-paste the code from here, this is just an example (of my system). You should change the /dev/sda4 partition with yours.
