fedora does not appear on grub

asked 2016-07-16 09:55:03 -0500

I have installed kali linux alongside fedora, but now grub does not show the option for fedora.

dev/sda1 is the fedora partition.

sudo parted -l:

Model: ATA ST500LT012-9WS14 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 500GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: msdos

When you run the GRUB updater (example: update-grub) mount the fedora partition in your file manager (/dev/sda1). Then run the updater script in terminal. It is

sudo update-grub

for ubuntu based distros and

sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

for fedora based distros
