That's the old installation method, it doesn't work any more. You should follow the steps here:

First, you can open config file /boot/burg/burg.cfg and see which class it detects for your mint os, for example, this is an entry for Debian:

menuentry "Debian GNU/Linux ..." --class Debian {
}

Then, for sora theme, go to /boot/burg/themes/sora/icons directory, there are two icon for each os, one is normal state, one is hover state. Add the two icons for mint, for example, button-mint.png and button-mint-hover.png. Then, edit icons.txt, add a line for mint, for example:

class {
  Ubuntu { image = "${theme_dir}/icons/button-ubuntu.png:${theme_dir}/icons/button-ubuntu-hover.png" }
  Linux { image = "${theme_dir}/icons/button-linux.png:${theme_dir}/icons/button-linux-hover.png" }
  MacOSX { image = "${theme_dir}/icons/button-osx.png:${theme_dir}/icons/button-osx-hover.png" }
  Windows { image = "${theme_dir}/icons/button-windows.png:${theme_dir}/icons/button-windows-hover.png" }
  Unknown { image = "${theme_dir}/icons/button-unknown.png:${theme_dir}/icons/button-unknown-hover.png" }
  CLASS_LABEL { image = "${theme_dir}/icons/button-mint.png:${theme_dir}/icons/button-mint-hover.png" }
}

Replace CLASS_LABEL which the class label you find out in the previous step.

For refit theme, go to /boot/burg/themes/refit

Add the icon here, then edit theme.txt, add a something like this before the final closing }:

  MacOSX {
    image = "${theme_dir}/os_osx.png"
  }

  image {
    image = "${theme_dir}/os_unknown.png"
  }

   CLASS_LABEL {
     image = "${theme_dir}/os_mint.png"
   }
}

Thanks a lot for your effort. BTW, that document is a little outdated, it doesn't include latest features like folding and theme selection menu. I'd update it when I have spare time.
