As far as i understood, it is correct to a certain extent, because the
GRUB refers to the disks as the BIOS refers to them, not as the correct
layout, so I think that on a single-disked system, that should be
But for example a /dev/hdc disk on linux on a system where there is no
/dev/hdb (i.e. two master disks, no slaves), grub would call it (hd1).
