Bug#852653: additional info

I booted using the install disk and used the rescue option

Trying to install grub again from the mounted drive, it reported this error: grub-install: warning: Attempting to install GRUB to a disk with multiple partition labels. This is not supported yet.. grub-install: warning: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and their use is discouraged..
grub-install: error: will not proceed with blocklists.

a quick search yielded this:


The first partition was indeed 2048 so I ran the command as suggested:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX seek=1 count=2047

and then grub successfully installed and it all boots correctly

Not sure if that helps...
