So, I just finished installing Fedora 21 along with my existing Windows 8.1 installation. At first I had an issue loading Windows but I was able to resolve it using this site. At the moment this is my boot screen.

I have two questions, why are there 4 options being thrown when only 2 operating systems are installed? Secondly how can I edit it so only two options come up?

I edited /boot/grub2/grub.cfg but that failed because the file changes revert.

Here is my current grub file.

!/bin/sh exec tail -n +3 $0

This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries. Simply type


menu entries you want to add after this comment. Be careful not to


the 'exec tail' line above. menuentry 'Microsoft Windows 8.1' {

search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root '52ef222e-fe2a-4a87-9329-10960c102995'
chainloader /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi
boot }

Hello: You have two entries for Fedora, standard and safe boot. Once you update it you should have two more for past kernels (up to 3 by default, see /etc/dnf/dnf.conf installonly_limit). The other two are related to Windows. To edit your grub contents the easiest way is to use grub-customizer.

sudo dnf install -y grub-customizer

And use it to delete the Windows one.

Kind regards
