GRUB should now show you a survey of you drives and their names, which should allow you to figure out the proper name of the device in question.
I'm booting GrUB from a usb stick and the method results in :
Possible disk are : hd0, hd1, hd2, hd3, hd4, hd5, hd6, hd7
Since I've only a harddisk, this seems a bit strange.
Anyway, they doesn't work. :-(
