I am using Windows 10, Ubuntu and Debian 10 in my machine. Everything was fine untill some Debian update (or so as I think). Now when i restart my system only a underscore is displayed on my screen for 2-4 minutes and then the grub list of OSs appears.
I thought something was wrong with my HDD so i booted in windows and installed EasyBCD and wrote the windows MBR over grub, then the system booted perfectly without delay when Windows bootloader took over. Again i booted in Debian using Windows bootloader(EasyBCD), same underscore appeared but this time with following message.
GRUB4DOS 0.4.6a 2018-11-05 root is (0x80,0) Processing the preset-menu... (hd0,4) [Multiboot-kludge, loadaddr=0x10000, text-and-data=0x6591, bss=0x0, entry=0x10098c]

Following are some outputs that might help,
root@providence:~# systemd-analyze Startup finished in 17.873s (kernel) + 36.640s (userspace) = 54.514s graphical.target reached after 36.623s in userspace
Note that Windows 10 is installed in /dev/sda3 and Debian 10 is installed in /dev/sda8, where as the stupid /dev/sda1 is Windows System Reserved.

PS: I got mad and removed Ubuntu. Poor ubuntu.
