On my laptop i have two hard disks and suddenly, i don't know why, i can't boot from linux partitions installed on any of the two hard disk. I don't know if this is grub issue, i tried to use boot-repair but it didn't fix the issue. I installed Windows 10, just for testing, and i was able to boot without issue, so it seems this is happening only with linux installations. I am able to boot from usb though and currently i am posting from MX Linux Live booted from usb. These are my current partitions:

I have MX Linux installed on sda1 (boot) and sda2 (root), and also MX Linux installed on sdb1.
