Removing useless Grub entries?

Hi, all. I’m an Ubuntu user, New to openSuse.

I have 3 entries for Windows in my dual-boot setup. Grub shows openSuse, openSuse failsafe, Windows 1, Windows 2 and Windows 3.

Windows 1 is my Windows 7 install which I can boot into without issue. How can I delete the other 2 as they mean nothing and are not bootable.

Thanks in advance for any help.

kdesu kwrite /boot/grub/menu.lst


gnomesu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

One of the above for kde or gnome and edit the entries you don’t want. Be careful.

Thanks. Off to work, Ill attempt when I get home.

Will I be commenting the entries with a “#” or removing them all together?

Thanks again.!

Remove them.

You can also do it the easier way:

Goto YaST -> System -> Bootloader

Definitely prefer the BootLoader in YaST for a new user. The Boot loader seems to be somewhat stuborn if you edit /boot/grub/menu.lst yourself in 11.2, I have had phantom extra entries appearing as a result.

The expert should unddoubtely turn Perl Bootloader off, and just have a “Latest” entry, and a known good fallback kernel, which won’t get updated.

Others should best, edit the sections and adjust so you just have one called “Windows”, I found it offered to boot things like Restore partitions which would try to wind back Win’s C: to it’s OEM pristine condition.
