I have a Win8.1 laptop. I installed Ubuntu, and had the installer put it on it's own 50MB partition. I installed Zorin and did the same.
I installed Grub Customizer on Zorin, and changed the list order.
When I rebooted, The order wasn't what I set it to.
So, I installed Grub Customizer on Ubuntu and did the same thing.
The header says "GNU Grub Version 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1.7"
The list items are in this order:
- Windows Boot Manager (on /dev/sda2)
- Advanced Options for Zorin
- Advanced Options for Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS (14.04) (on /dev/sda6)
- System Settings
- Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS (14.04) (on /dev/sda6)
When I go back into Zorin and launch Grub Customizer, it agrees with this order. If I edit the order, save and re-boot, the order reverts to this.
I set my preferred order in Ubuntu and it seems to save, and it worked before I installed Zorin. But, the actual boot menu does not reflect the changes. If you follow my shorthand, I want the boot order to be W,Z,U,AOZ,AOU,SYSTEM. I also set a background image for GRUB in both customizers and neither one made the image display.
How can I verify which distro is actually in control of grub? How can I customize the boot order and appearance?
side note: All 3 OSs load correctly when selected.
