    I don't need Grub2 to probe for other OS(s) as I am chainloading 9.10 from 8.04 (which has 'Legacy Grub').
    The 3 menu entries for 8.04 in the Karmic bootloader are therefore not needed.
    Question: can I just add this line to /etc/default/grub >>>
    GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true
    followed by: sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg (to update grub - required after making changes to /etc/default/grub)

    It works. Now I have only the entries for Karmic.
    BTW there are 2 memtest entries, one of them 'serial console' whatever that means.
