I’m not sure if these instructions are distribution specific.   Currently I’m testing this with LinuxMint13 with Cinnamon.

To probe disks on the system for other operating systems:

# os-probe

Search the new kernel images and update the grub configuration

# update-grub

But in fact, kernel make install will automatically run update-grub..

# cd LINUX_SOURCE_TREE
# cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config
# make menuconfig
# make -j4
# make modules
# make modules_install
# make install

Reboot! (Don’t blame me if your machine doesn’t boot!)
