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

Linux Mint 12 RC comes with two option of desktop environment: One built with GNOME 3.2 and MGSE and other with GNOME 2.3 and MATE. In this post we will show how to Gnome shell extenstion Mate for LinuxMint in Ubuntu11.10.
First if you didn hear about ‘Mate”, it is a fork of Gnome 2 which is compatible with Gnome 3. Thanks to MATE, you can run both versions of Gnome on the same system.MATE is brand new, it’s not completely stable yet, and it’s missing a few parts. It’s being actively maintained and with close collaboration between the MATE developers and Linux Mint. With time the project will gain maturity and provide users with a traditional and solid desktop experience.(1)
For “MGSE” (Mint Gnome Shell Extensions) is a desktop layer on top of Gnome 3 that makes it possible for you to use Gnome 3 in a traditional way. You can disable all components within MGSE to get a pure Gnome 3 experience, or you can enable all of them to get a Gnome 3 desktop that is similar to what you’ve been using before. Of course you can also pick and only enable the components you like to design your own desktop.(1) Continue reading Install LinuxMint12 extensions Mate & MGSE in Ubuntu 11.10
