After installing Windows 10, every time I get a kernel update or I run the
update-grub2 it always shows
Windows 7 instead of
Windows 10. How do I fix this permanently?
The reason why it still shows
Windows 7 instead of
Windows 10 is that the file
/usr/lib/os-probes/mounted/20microsoft does not contain the label for
Windows 10, so during the
os-prober detection of the OS it falls back to
To correct this, you need to make the following changes to the
NOTE: Always make a backup of the file before modifying it!
if item_in_dir -q bootmgr "$2"; then
# there might be different boot directories in different case as:
# boot Boot BOOT
for boot in $(item_in_dir boot "$2"); do
bcd=$(item_in_dir bcd "$2/$boot")
if [ -n "$bcd" ]; then
if grep -qs "W.i.n.d.o.w.s. .1.0" "$2/$boot/$bcd"; then
long="Windows 10 (loader)"
elif grep -qs "W.i.n.d.o.w.s. .8" "$2/$boot/$bcd"; then
long="Windows 8 (loader)"
elif grep -qs "W.i.n.d.o.w.s. .7" "$2/$boot/$bcd"; then
long="Windows 7 (loader)"
the changes above are changing the line
if grep -qs "W.i.n.d.o.w.s. .8" "$2/$boot/$bcd"; then to
elif grep -qs "W.i.n.d.o.w.s. .8" "$2/$boot/$bcd"; then, and adding
if grep -qs "W.i.n.d.o.w.s. .1.0" "$2/$boot/$bcd"; then and
long="Windows 10 (loader)" above that line and saving it.
Once saved, then running
os-prober now looks like this:
terrance@terrance-ubuntu:~$ sudo os-prober
[sudo] password for terrance:
/dev/sdf1:Windows 10 (loader):Windows:chain
update-grub2 it will now make the updates to your
/boot/grub/grub.cfgpermanent anytime you get a kernel update so it will show the correct version of Windows now (example below):
terrance@terrance-ubuntu:~$ sudo update-grub

Although probably not recommended just yet (early doors and all that) the Xubuntu Development PPA contains pre-release builds of Xfce 4.12 for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and 14.10 users to install from at their own risk.
Add the Xubuntu Dev PPA to Ubuntu’s Software Sources using a Terminal and the following commands (assuming the Xfce desktop is already installed):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
To remove the PPA and downgrade to the version of PPA in the main Ubuntu repos/other installed PPAs the ‘ppa-purge’ utility should be installed and used:
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:xubuntu-dev/xfce-4.12
