You don't say the contents of grub.cfg.  Mine is:

set default=2
set timeout=5

insmod part_gpt
insmod ext2

set root='hd0,gpt1'

menuentry 'Linux Mint 17.2 Xfce 64-bit' {
    insmod gzio
    linux /vmlinuz-3.16.0-38-generic 
root=UUID=3b35b7db-f76b-4a32-baa7-814538d95ee1 ro
    initrd   /initrd.img-3.16.0-38-generic

menuentry 'LFS SVN-20160104' {
    linux   /vmlinuz-4.3.3-SVN-20160104 root=/dev/sda4 ro raid=noautodetect

menuentry 'LFS SVN-20160111 kernel 4.4' {
    linux   /vmlinuz-4.4-SVN-20160112 root=/dev/sda4 ro raid=noautodetect

menuentry "GNU/Linux, vmlinuz-4.4.2-lfs-7.9-rc2 (/dev/sda3)" {
         linux /vmlinuz-4.4.2-lfs-7.9-rc2 root=/dev/sda3 ro
