Hi, St├ęphane,

This has been reported to me before. GRUB uses a third-party tool called
os-prober to create entries for other operating systems. At the time we
released 016, that tool was quite broken and didn't work out of the box. I
have fixed the most obvious issues so that multiple installations of
GoboLinux would be properly detected, but it looks like other OSs are not
properly handled yet.

I will look into getting that fixed at some point -- thanks for the

Best regards,
