Follow-up Comment #40, bug #29977 (project grub):

It seems a friend of mine also could not dual boot Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows
XP, which like myself have these installed on two drives, with the Windows XP
install being on the primary drive, and Ubuntu on the other.
Although like me, he doesn't know why, although he suspects it's something to
do with the BIOS trying to detect the drive with the boot loader as the
primary drive, even though the boot partition is on the second drive.
But it seems that Grub can deal with this issue, just not Grub2?
It's best guess I'm afraid as this is not my area of expertise, but maybe
someone with more knowledge of hardware and boot loaders will make more sense
of it?
