Bug#394963: installation-reports: damaging winxp installation

Package: installation-reports
Followup-For: Bug #394963

Hi all!

I just wanted to add that I had the exact same stuff just today:

1: winxp fat32
2: swap
3: ext3

At first there was only the 1. partition, winxp installed without
problems, rebooting worked, everything.

then installation of debian/etch amd64
manual partitioning, I added partition 2 and 3 and didn't change
anything on partition 1.

finished installation of etch, installed grub into mbr,

rebooting linux works,

rebooting winxp gives the same "cannot mount root..."
