I believe that Grub will automatically detect the second drive. Boot into Xubuntu and run sudo update-grub.

You want to install GRUB on whichever disk your motherboard (BIOS/UEFI) is configured to boot to. That's probably the first hard drive, /dev/sda. Often the BIOS will just be configured to boot to "hard drives," and will boot to the first bootable disk. In that case, as long as the other two disks aren't bootable, it wouldn't matter on which disk you ...

I use this command line, that is just a parsing of /boot/grub/grub.cfg, in order to show numbered entries, one per line: sed ':again;$!N;$!b again; :b; s/{[^{}]*}//g; t b' /boot/grub/grub.cfg | cut -c -60 | grep -e "^menuentry" -e "submenu" | nl -v 0 | grep -e "menuentry" -e "submenu" --color that results (not the same example as the graphic before, ...

So in the end what I did is to go into grub command prompt and run the start-up commands for windows from /boot/grub/grub.cfg line by line. This is the menu item code in the grub.cfg menuentry 'Windows 8 (loader) (on /dev/sda3)' --class windows --class os $menuentry_id_option 'osprober-chain-A6A4F8AFA4F882DB' { insmod part_msdos insmod ...

The obvious answer is this is happening because grub can not find the windows boot loader. The less obvious answer is because the grub configuration file does not properly specify the root for the windows bootloader. The default operation seems to leave that line out. While it would be somewhat complicated to fix the default Windows Bootloader, the ...

From what I've seen, I don't believe this is possible. I was in a similar situation where I setup a GRUB entry to boot from a USB. If I didn't have a USB stick in before startup, the boot option fails. If I boot with the USB stick already connected, the option would boot from the USB. Using GRUB 0.97, I've scanned the manual and tried many commands but I ...

Looks like somehow Debian installer screws up the partition table. The "bios_grub" flag gets removed and becomes "raid" flag. The fix is to rework the partition table again with parted and set it back. parted /dev/sda set 1 bios_grub on quit Same for /dev/sdb, and then chrooting and installing grub with answer from this question: How can I ...

The splash (which eventually ends up in your /boot/grub/grub.cfg ) causes the splash screen to be shown. At the same time you want the boot process to be quiet, as otherwise all kinds of messages would disrupt that splash screen. Although specified in GRUB these are kernel parameters influencing the loading of the kernel or its modules, not something that ...
