At the command prompt (either logged in as root or using sudo), try:

update-initramfs -u



That might fix your grub configuration problem. Of course, you don't want anything to go wrong, so make sure you are backed up first. Murphy's Law states that if you are fully backed up, then you won't need it.

If the command update-initramfs isn't found, you may need to install the package "initramfs-tools".
