Not sure if this is or still an issue for multibooters but p32 of the
Grub2 manual states this.

5.3 Multi-boot manual config

Currently autogenerating config files for multi-boot environments
depends on os-prober and has several shortcomings. While fixing it is
scheduled for the next release, meanwhile you can make use of the power
of GRUB syntax and do it yourself. A possible configuration is detailed
here, feel free to adjust to your needs.

p.s. I believe an alternative is to stick to Grub until it is fixed?


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
