P.S.: The root

command is traditionally used instead when GRUB cannot mount the partition. No use making GRUB attempt to mount a partition that it cannot mount. The savedefault
command only works when the default=0
command is set to saved
. It's a neat idea that makes the last chosen OS the new default, but it's doing nothing at the moment. So you can remove that. And the makeactive
command is an archaic command that was only needed by ancient operating systems like DOS. It's never needed by a modern Windows system. You should remove it, too.
