    Debian not displayed on GRUB window

    Hi all,

    Fedora 17 64bit
    Debian 6.0.6 64bit

    On Debian ran;
    # apt-get -t squeeze-backports install linux-image-3.2.0-0.bpo.3-amd64 firmware-linux-free

    New kernel not found on GRUB prompt only old kernel there
    Linux version 2.6.32-5-amd64 (Debian 2.6.32-46)
    Debian still can be booted.

    Then on Fedora ran;
    $ sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

    Rebooted and on GRUB prompt Debian new kernel was still not displayed. The new kernel was found under "Advanced Option" of Debian.

    Started Debian with new kernel a black screen displayed finally. Pressed [Ctrl]+[Alt]+/F1/F2/F4 etc with no action.

    Then forced-rebooted PC and booted Debian new kernel recovery mode. It was dropped to Shell.

    Then I ran;
    # blkid
    found the device of Debian

    # fsck -yf /dev/sda3 (device of Debian)


    Debian is now completely not shown up on GRUB prompt.

    Please help. TIA
