  1. Run: sudo mkdir /usr/share/grub/themes (IF DONE SKIP TO TWO.)

  2. Run: sudo cp --recursive ./surface /usr/share/grub/themes

  3. Add the following line to /etc/default/grub:

  4. Make the repair title and icon for kernel repair.

    Open /etc/grub.d/10_linux and search for (towards bottom):

    echo "submenu '$(gettext_printf "Advanced options for %s" "${OS}" | grub_quote)'

    Insert the following immediatly after:

    --class recovery --class repair

    (note: edit "Advanced options for %s" to "Repair %s" or something to your liking)

  5. Make the Secure Boot title and icon.

    Open /etc/grub.d/30_uefi-firmware and search for (towards the bottom) :

    menuentry '$LABEL'

    Insert the following immediatly after:

    --class secure --class recovery

    (note: replace LABEL=System Setup with LABEL=Secure Boot)

  6. Make the Windows title and icon for Windows launch.

    If you have run boot-repair, open /etc/grub.d/25_custom and you will see the following:

    menuentry "Windows UEFI bkpbootmgfw.efi" { 
      search --fs-uuid --no-floppy --set=root BE36-A896 
      chainloader (${root})/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bkpbootmgfw.efi 
    menuentry "Windows Boot UEFI loader" { 
      search --fs-uuid --no-floppy --set=root BE36-A896 
      chainloader (${root})/EFI/Boot/bkpbootx64.efi 

    Delete one of the menuentry settings then insert --class windows after the ":
    (note: edit title as desired.)

    If not, open /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober and search for :

    '$(echo "${LONGNAME} $onstr" | grub_quote)' --class windows

    Replace ${LONGNAME} $onstr with Windows (note: edit title as desired.)
