I've personally never used update-grub before, so unless the command was 
given by an update, no.

I run Windows 7 and Ubuntu Gnome on separate hard drives. I had 
unplugged the Windows 7 HDD for the boot-repair.

Don't think so since it happens when restarting from Ubuntu Gnome and 
never from Windows 7 to Ubuntu Gnome if the option was there before 
restarting Ubuntu Gnome.

If it matters any, I get a duplicate UEFI entry for Ubuntu, named after 
the hard drive model(Model: ST3750528AS). If i select it, the screen 
flashes blue and enters grub as normal(or looks normal, anyway).

Good to know. I had read this:

and assumed that i was suppose to just link it.

Alright, thanks!
