    Default grub2 boot menu didn't change on install of 13.1

    grub2 boot menu didn't change on install of 13.1, 13.1 is installed, but
    I can't get into it yet

    I have installed openSUSE 13.1 on my laptop and box #2 below, and was
    able to get them going.

    On my #1 box, I installed 13.1, and everything looked good during the
    install. Then when it rebooted, the grub2 boot menu was exactly as it
    was before - it showed 12.3 as the number 1 selection, and 12.2 from
    before as the 2nd selection.

    Here is my hard drive configuration. I am running RAID-1 on several drives.

    Code:
    # cat /proc/mdstat
    Personalities : [raid1] [raid0] [raid10] [raid6] [raid5] [raid4]
    md0 : active (auto-read-only) raid1 sda2[1] sdc2[2]

    As you can see, sda and sdc are partitioned the same, and sdb and sdd
    are partitioned the same.

    sda and sdd are the drives I have the OS on, while sdb and sdd are for
    data only.

    I have raided the drives as I noted above.

    when I run os_prober out of 12.3, I get the following:

    So you can see that the 13.1 is detected.

    I don't remember which drive, sda or sdc, has grub 2 installed on it.
    Perhaps both.

    Any suggestions on what I should do next? I was thinking I would run the
    rescue system of 13.1, change the root over and reinstall grub2 on each
    of the drives /dev/sda and /dev/sdc.

    Default Re: grub2 boot menu didn't change on install of 13.1

    Check the kernel version that is running when you boot the first option.

    It might be running 13.1 in spite of what the title of the menu option says.

    I ran the installation twice, thinking maybe there was just some kind of
    error the first time. But no, the same thing both times. The grub2 menu
    shows up just like before.

    I tried to boot in the other partition, where I used to have 12.2
    installed and now have 13.1, but it would not boot because the grub line
    is looking for the 12.2 kernel, and 13.1 is installed in that partition.

    It was a new installation in a partition that I previously had 12.2
    running on.

    Yes, thank you, that did bring 13.1 into the grub boot menu. However, it
    is the 2nd option, having taken the place of 12.2 that I had there. In
    order to make it the default option, with 12.3 as my 2nd option instead
    of the first, what do you suggest I do? Perhaps run the same script, but
    do it now from 13.1?

    Another question I have is, should I also install grub on /dev/sdc? That
    is the device that I have raided with sda on all partitions. Or is it
    better to wait until I have a hard drive failure, and boot into the
    rescue system and install grub at that time?

    Thanks for your help.

    But if you can now boot to 13.1?

    Run exactly the same code from 13.1

    Code:
    su -
    grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
    Code:
    grub2-install /dev/sda
    This should put 13.1 in control and first with 12.3 following

    Thanks! that worked, although, there was something quirky, perhapse
    someone can explain...

    I ran both those commands, and 12.3 was still in control. So then I ran

    Code:
    # grub2-install /dev/sdc
    which is the drive I have raided with /dev/sda, and when I rebooted it
    had 13.1 in control now.

    So for some reason my system was looking at /dev/sdc to boot up instead
    of /dev/sda. Why would it do that?

    You tell me
    I have no idea how your system is setup
    From what I have read though, it already sounds unconventional
