I just installed win10 + ubuntu on my Lenovo laptop. Windows is installed on SSD and Ubuntu is installed on HDD. sda1 is win recovery and sda2 is windows 10. Ubuntu is installed on sdb. Bootloader was instaled in sda.

Still, GRUB2 shows only win recovery on sda1. I already tried updating grub and os-prober as it was suggested in other asks (where windows was not found at al), but it only finds sda1. I read somewhere that it may be Lenovo fault, but i'm not sure about it.

Can i fix it any other way than manualy adding win10 in grub files? Various threads says that for win 8.1 and 10 can be buggy to add them manualy.

  • try boot-repair 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair' – Ashu Apr 17 '16 at 18:45
  • Done that. Ran recommended repair... but it didnt work. Everything is exacly as it was before. I dont know if anyone can help by looking at this: paste.ubuntu.com/15904934 If not, i'll go to boot repair forum. – Figorix Apr 17 '16 at 21:45

There is nothing wrong if Windows boots correctly when you select the Windows Recovery entry. GRUB detects all boot loaders and the first Windows boot loader detected is the one that points to the Windows Recovery Environment. The complete Windows Boot Environment starts when you select the Windows Recovery Environment entry from the GRUB boot menu entries list.
So this is absolutely nothing you should worry about ... it is just a misleading wrong name.
