Package: grub-installer
Version: 1.22

Hello, my computer has 2 hdd's, one serial ATA behind a Silicon Image 3112 chipset and one IDE as a secondary slave. I chose to install Etch (stable) on a partition in the serial ata drive (sda), which went on without problems. My motherboard, ABIT NF7-S rev 1.1 has an option in BIOS to boot from serial ATA, so naturally I assumed grub would be installed on the boot sector of sda. This wasn't the case, as grub was installed on the PATA (IDE) drive hdb. I was able to overcome this by simply choosing to boot from the IDE drive in BIOS, but I think this behavior warrants a fix.

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from debian installer version
which isn't supported anymore.
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.


Melhores cumprimentos/Best regards,

Miguel Figueiredo
