I assume that it is querying (just accessing a file)data and that this data is stored in the first stage.
grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
This out put looks like grub stage1 is not on my first partition which is what XP is on. I thought stage1 natively was installed on the MBR of the first drive at the start of it and not on a partition at all.
Thanks in advance!
