I have just Removed Windows and installed GhostBSD on its place. But whenever I power on my laptop I cant see GhostBSD boot option in bootloader. I am using default grub loader that I was using before installing bsd.

here is output of update-grub command:-

smit@smit-Aspire-5742:~$ sudo update-grub
[sudo] password for smit:

This question came from our site for Ubuntu users and developers.

  • Is this about Ubuntu? I think it actually is. I think you are trying to use Ubuntu's boot loader to boot into GhostBSD. Just as we allow questions about booting Windows from GRUB, I see no reason not to allow this, too. With that said, I do recommend that you clarify the situation, say explicitly that you want the GRUB2 boot loader installed with Ubuntu (and which Ubuntu configures and maintains with updates) to boot GhostBSD (assuming that is what you want), and also provide more information about the Ubuntu system, including what Ubuntu release you are using (lsb_release -d shows this). – Eliah Kagan Dec 7 '17 at 17:20
