I don't know only one what i know after update Zorin 16 Pro my grub always changing. This grub was 2021/08/20

Do you want see my grub?

Only if you update it first.

If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update

info -f grub -n 'Simple configuration'

What is the terminal output of lsb_release -a?

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Zorin OS 16
Release: 20.04
Codename: focal

You just ran the normal updater on Zorin OS 16? Do you also have Zorin OS 12 installed? When was the last time you booted Zorin 12?

I don't used Zorin 12 long time ago. Never on this hard disk. I get this changing grub always when Zorin 16 Pro was updated. With grub I take once modification when I get black screen. Another distribution only using in vmware.neofetch

If it was me, I would reinstall grub.
Your grub file looks normal (including your modifications) and it lists the Zorin Theme for it, too.

Reinstalling GRUB 2 from a Working System

I taken some modification yesterday about some file when cannot install amd drivers from amd webside.

Could have said that in your O.P. :expressionless:

I still recommend reinstalling Grub to see if that resolves the issue- install it from the terminal to ensure you get the Zorin OS package.

GNU nano 4.8 /etc/os-release
NAME="Zorin OS"
HOME_URL="Zorin OS - Make your computer better."
SUPPORT_URL="Help - Zorin"
BUG_REPORT_URL="Send Feedback - Zorin OS"
PRIVACY_POLICY_URL="Privacy Policy - Zorin"

Ok. Fixed this problem without any drastic things.
1 Start a PC computer - then you see a boot menu.
2 Click E to edit grub. On top paramet 'ubuntu' I changed on 'zorin'. Then I boot to Zorin button F10 and used a command sudo update-grub.
Everything back on place and after reboot I see again Zorin sign.

I do not see how a Zorin Update could change your grub file to say "Ubuntu."

Next time when I get some problems before and after I will create a photo.
You want sayed someone hacking a Zorin? I don't changed a grub when my graphic card working. It will be soon a month.

I wouldn't jump to those conclusions; but my question remains valid. I've installed the latest updates, too.
I think hacking or you going in and changing it are both as unlikely as Zorin Update doing it.
As to what caused it- I do not know.

Nobody hacking my pc but working on pc experimetal testing you can get some weird things.

This is very true - and the story of my first 6 months on Zorin OS :smiley:

Zorin after changed grub very slowly.
Games in steam not loading. Everything loading very slowly. Temperature graphic card from 65 go to 55 and my pcu processor now is 88%.
Recovery mode help all this problems and back before update?
