    Default BackTrack 5 GRUB2 Title is wrong..

    Hello everyone. I just recently installed BT5, and in GRUB, BT5 is listed as Ubuntu. This is what my grub looks like. BackTrack is on top, real ubuntu is on bottom.

    Code:
    Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38
    Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38 (recovery mode)
    Memory test (memtest86+)
    Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)
    Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)
    Windows Vista (loader) (on /dev/sda2)
    Windows Vista (loader) (on /dev/sda3)
    Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic (on /dev/sda6)
    Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic (recovery mode) (on /dev/sda6)
    I want to change the first ubuntu (backtrack) to say backtrack, and move the real ubuntu above windows 7.

    I did follow this guide: Ubuntu install: GRUB2 title tweaks

    Didn't work.

    You can find the titles in /boot/grub/grub.cfg and change them there.
    However, that file is generated and, hence, your changes will disappear when there is an update of grub. I'm not sure how to change this to remain changed after a grub update. But have a look at /etc/default/grub and the files in /etc/grub.d/

    This page had everything I needed to change my grub:
    http://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2

    I'm running BT5 on encrypted usb so after running grub-update I had to copy the grub.cfg file to my boot volume to take the changes.
