Package: installation-reports
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

[ I'm reporting the problem on behalf of my friend. ]

Tried 6.0.5 CD1 and the current testing snapshot (August 20).

There were two hard drives (/dev/sda and /dev/sdb), Debian was installed
to the logical partition of the second drive (something like /dev/sdb6),
everything (except swap) was installed to a single partition.

Everything was fine on the installation stage, but after the reboot the
user was greeted with the Grub command line, i.e. boot failed.
Apparently because the Grub was installed to the /dev/sda
unconditionally. After we managed to install (manually, using the rescue
disk) Grub to the MBR of second hard drive (i.e. 'grub-install
/dev/sdb'), boot succeeded.

This is unfortunate. I wonder if we did something wrong or installer
should have some more code for handling multi-disk installations.

thank you for submitting installation reports, much appreciated.

I read through all the bugs mentioned here (and I'm sure they were read by 
several people at the time they were submitted) and am closing them now as/if
- they (finally) indicated success and/or
- I know from first hand experience that the functionality is working in 
Wheezy and/or
- they only contained very little information and/or
- they contained user errors and/or
- they were caused by broken hardware and/or
- they have been from a development phase where things were not stable and/or
- they are quite old (and thus likely fixed today) and/or
- moreinfo was asked and not given.

If I've closed a bug incorrectly please do reply (it's easy to reopen and I'll 
do if requested) or just file a new one - thats often better, as the bug log 
will be clearer and shorter and not contain cruft.
