> Took your advice. I'll just update Grub2 when I move past 9.10 which does seem easier. One problem, I'm getting some warning about my swap file unable to mount&  something about fstat? I'm gunna look into it but if anyone can offer advice, thanks.

when installing, there should be a swap activated and should be in your 
fstab. But, never mind, at terminal, type
sudo swapoff -a

sudo swapon -a

First command closes (deactivates?) all swap and second activates it back.

You may want to check your fstab at /etc/fstab before and after the 
operations to see if there are any changes.
