Some searching at the grub command line show the correct value is actually (hd1,0).
What's going on? How should I fix this? Thanks.
The Ubuntu installer assumes that youŕe boot device is (HD0,0) unless
you change it.
After deciding on with drive to install it comes with a next window
one of the option there is called Advance or something like that here
you can change the boot device.
If have you more HD it is important how the HDs order where during installation.
If you have change it we now have to change the drive mapping too so
what is the outcome of the command Fdisk -l (L lower case)
