My Fedora WS has 4 drive bays and I access old boot and other HDs in bays 2-4. I just did a clean install of Fedora Sway to /dev/sda - everything is fine and the system boots OK but I am confused:

- cat /etc/os-release

NAME="Fedora Linux"
VERSION="38 (Sway)"
PRETTY_NAME="Fedora Linux 38 (Sway)"

- The install picked up old Fedora boot setups which show up in /boot/grub2/grub.conf like this:

menuentry 'Fedora Linux 37 (KDE Plasma) (on /dev/sde3)' --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'osprober-gnulinux-/boot/vmlinuz-6.0.7-301.fc37.x86_64--f6f43412-e6ed-4dff-808b-fe013691c3b6' {

- but why is there is not a line like this in /boot/grub2/grub.conf for Fedora 38 Sway?

I can see that the appropriate other Sway files are in the /boot tree so I am guessing that grub2 somehow knows the proper, default boot image - even though the default does not have a menuentry in grub.cfg?

A pointer to a link for info would be great . .
