I've been doing some research and comparing with another laptop with linux mint 19.2 and something catch my attention in grub config file (/boot/grub/grub.cfg) this is something that I saw when grub menu shows up and press "e" to edit boot parameters but I know it's in grub.cfg file. 

linux   /boot/vmlinuz-5.0.0-25-generic root=UUID=3ed55e6c-6270-4510-89dc-68976a693ba7 ro ignore_bootid live-media-path=/multibootusb/Peppermint-10-20190514-amd64/casper floppy.allowed_drive_mask=0 ignore_uuid root=UUID=7993-DCCB quiet splash $vt_handoff
      initrd   /boot/initrd.img-5.0.0-25-generic

after edited grub parameters in next boot and delete all marked system was able to boot normally. the point is how this arguments get there.

regards

Hi, yes I did. I burn peppermint 10 to my USB sitck with multibootusb. I have several distros loaded in my USB stick and I use very often and never have an issue installing any linux distro. I'm been busy last days but last night I solved the issue. the line that appear in /boot/grub.cfg also appear in /etc/default/grub in GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="ignore_bootid live-media-path=/multibootusb/Peppermint-10-20190514-amd64/casper floppy.allowed_drive_mask=0 ignore_uuid root=UUID=7993-DCCB"
I edited /etc/default/grub as well as /boot/grub.cfg removed the same line in several places of grub.cfg file and updated grub and now system boot as it should.

Multiboot worked fairly well for me in the 14.04 and 16.04 versions but started giving me problems once the 18.04 versions came out. I avoid it now.
What was I thinking?
