Replace hd0 with the drive whose MBR is being used. (note: hd0 does not follow the same syntax as the linux kernel so sata drives and usb drives are all considered an hd and the number which corresponds to them is the number equal to the order bios detects them.)
Hey few questions... How to I get grub into my MBR? Also, using "setup (hd0,1)" didn't work.
I'm plenty familiar with how grub handles hard-drive partitions. Thanks for the tip though. But yeah. I'd really like to get this problem solved.
