Using GRUB 2 is harder than GRUB 1 for these use cases:
- It looks like if I want to reorder GRUB 2 menu entries appear in the selection window, I have to rename the files in "/etc/grub.d/" directory.
- If I have to change boot order, I first have to look in "/boot/grub/grub.cfg", check when the entry I want to be default appears, then set the
GRUB_DEFAULTparameter in "/etc/default/grub" to match it (counting from 0).
The old GRUB used to allow me to do all of this by just moving text entries in "/boot/grub/menu.lst" around. This much-simpler way kept me using GRUB 1 for a while. This makes me wonder if there's a specialized tool to make all of this easier.
