Hello, all. I've been fighting this issue for the last couple of days. I'm at the point where google is no longer showing me useful new information, so I thought I come and see if I could get answers from the good folks here. Here's my situation:
I was fighting a different boot issue, and commented out the grub theme from /etc/default/grub and built a new grub config.
I am trying to re-install GRUB, so my system will dual boot either Windows 8 or Kubuntu 12.04. I have rEFInd to override Windows and let me choose Kubuntu to boot up. I would prefer GRUB handle my bootup options. What does this error mean?
ron@ron-Lenovo-H430:~$ grub-install /dev/sda
/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/sda2.

The best guide I've found to manually configuring grub is the Good Doctor's thread: Manage multiple distros with grub2. The main thing to note there is to remove the executable bit (chmod -x) from 30_os-prober after it has written all the distros to your grub file.

I install win8 in my first /dev/sda1.#2. my arch / mnt to /dev/sda11 and /homt mnt to /dev/sda10.#3. after isntall.#4.
I have created an entry in /etc/grub.d/40_custom. I then ran grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg. The entries are there, but when I boot, they don't show up in the menu. Am I missing a step for adding a menuentry to grub?
