Ubuntu has a routine that builds the grub2 config file
by searching the machine for bootable operating systems.
Booting Ubuntu recovery brings up a menu which includes
rebuilding the grub files.

I keep Ubuntu on a partition in my office machine and let it
do the grubby lifting.   It locates about a dozen boot targets
and puts them in the boot menu.  I have learned to do it this way
so that a failed install of Linux will not leave the
machine unbootable.
