Location: Asheville, North Carolina
Class: Bootloader tutorial
Difficulty: Advanced: User's risk
Time: About half an hour
Desirability: If the bootloader is working, recommend leaving this alone. Necessary to fix or customize Grub for some systems.

Now that we have rebooted the system we should see Grub2 and see our Peppermint install but where is our XP partition? Not to worry that is what we are going to address next. Boot into our installed Peppermint partition and open up a terminal using the following key combo.

Code:
Ctrl+Alt+T


Next run the following two commands.

Code:
sudo update-grub

Code:
sudo grub-install /dev/sda


Then when you reboot you should see the option to boot into Windows. You can follow the same procedure no matter what other operating system that you may have installed on your system. When you run update-grub and grub-install it will find the other installations and they should appear in the menu the next time you boot.
