There are several OS on my 2HDs Mint19.1, Mint19.3, Win7. I used Grub-customizer to edit boot menu in Mint19.1, but after upgrading Grub2 everything died. I installed Mint19.3 with Grub2 and everything was ok till kernel updating of old Mint19.1 - new kernel was not activated. So, I removed Grub-customizer and installed Grub2 on good old Mint19.1. Booting was fine but with no menu nor other OS. After installing os-prober I got doubled entries in boot menu - both another linux and Wins. I searched a lot and found there is no solution of the problem. In 2010s people just refused Grub2 and came back to Grub. Editing grub.cfg manually till next update-grub is stupid.
