Read the output of grub-mkconfig, it should inform you about the fact that it doesn't use os-prober by default and that needs to be explicitly enabled in current GRUB versions.

Thanks.
I have SOLVED adding this on /etc/default/grub:

GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false

Ok, who's the rocket scientist that decide not to have os-prober installed and added to grub?
It's been in grub.cfg since like forever, now you have to install it.   way to go dev's.
