    Re: Dual boot Fedora 29 alongside with Windows 10

    OK, I understand the "many moving parts" thing. It maybe also that your Windows grub2 menu entry is in a submenu. That does complicate things. Here is snippet from GNU Grub 2.02 Documentation:
    15.1.10 default
    If this variable is set, it identifies a menu entry that should be selected by default, possibly after a timeout (see timeout).
    The entry may be identified by number (starting from 0 at each level of the hierarchy), by title, or by id.
    For example, if you have:
    menuentry 'Example GNU/Linux distribution' --class gnu-linux --id example-gnu-linux {
    then you can make this the default using:
    If the entry is in a submenu, then it must be identified using the number, title, or id of each of the submenus starting from the
    top level, followed by the number, title, or id of the menu entry itself, with each element separated by ‘>’.
    For example, take the following menu structure:
    GNU/Hurd --id gnu-hurd
      Standard Boot --id=gnu-hurd-std
      Rescue shell --id=gnu-hurd-rescue
    Other platforms --id=other
      Minix --id=minix
        Version 3.4.0 --id=minix-3.4.0
        Version 3.3.0 --id=minix-3.3.0
      GRUB Invaders --id=grub-invaders
    The more recent release of Minix would then be identified as ‘Other platforms>Minix>Version 3.4.0’, or as ‘1>0>0’, or as ‘other>minix>minix-3.4.0
    I highlighted in bold beginning that discussion. Perhaps if you could post the output of:
    sudo egrep  -i -A2 "menuentry|submenu" /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg
    I, or someone else could help in sorting this out. I personally dislike the submenu system and have that disabled for my grub, so I'm not even up to date just what it looks like nowadays (maybe under an "Advanced options" item?).

    You could do "sudo cat /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg" in a terminal to get the whole picture of the menu entry segment.

    And if you wanted to uncomplicate things by eliminating submenus', just add GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU="true" to your /etc/default/grub file and then rebuild grub.cfg with "sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg".
