not strictly a grub2 issue, but os-prober creates unbootable menu's
when you have dual boot systems with same /boot.

Even during a new installation if the system already have another
GNU/Linux it will create unbootable entries for that. See #580736

Earlier with grub I remember these are correctly configured. Plus
without a single configuration file, it is much more difficult to get
it to work as you like.
