My guess is the bogus entries would remain and a "DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST" section would be added

Warren's been busy, in the course of less than one day mepis-config has gone from 8.0.11 to 8.0.12 and is now up to 8.0.14 .

8.0.12 is no longer available from the repo, reload the repo lists in Synaptic or run apt-get update again to install the 8.0.14 version (if thats still the current version)

or...you could try booting with the GRUB command line cheats autox or xdrvr=vesa . Autox tries to automatically determine the video card, xdrvr=vesa forces use of the VESA driver. Let us know if either one works. On an actual harddrive install I've never been able to get xdrvr=* (where * = nv, vesa...
