Yes, I did that (on Fedora it's: grub2-mkconfig -o /etc/grub2.cfg). I
do have a backup. If it looks right, there must be something else I'm
missing. I've wondered if having the Nvidia drivers installed could
affect things, though I don't see why it should be necessary as long as
I can stop them being loaded. I keep them updated using akmod but even 
uninstalling akmod and the kmod-nvidia rpm it generates doesn't make
any difference, i.e. somehow the modules are still there, which is
weird in in itself. Maybe that's the root of the problem.
