[grub #51] long delay when booting from hard disk

Summary: long delay when booting from hard disk
Version: 0.93
Type: software bug

I get an unusually long delay (about 30 seconds) between loading of the stage2 
and the appearance of the boot menu, when booting from the MBR of the first 
hard drive. 

My setup has Linux on an IDE disk and Windows NT on a scsi drive. GRUB has been 
installed on the MBR of the IDE drive. After the delay, the boot menu appears 
eventually and everything works as it should, I can boot Linux and chainload NT 
as described in the manual. 

When I'm using a grub floppy, the delay is two seconds at most. Interestingly, 
when booting from the floppy the drive identifications have changed their 
place. When I boot from the hard drive, the IDE disk is (hd0) and the SCSI is 
(hd1), with the floppy boot they're the other way around.

Please send followups to <address@hidden>.
