Follow-up Comment #2, bug #34965 (project grub):

Executing "ls -l" at the grub command line produces a list of the 6 disks
(hd0-hd5). The UUIDs match the UUIDS in "blkid" id.

The WinXP partition is on hd5,msdos1 and the Linux partition is on

If I "search --label SATA_01_Csys_10k" grub returns hd5,msdos1, the Windows

If I "search --fs-uuid 6258C1DF8F242D86" grub returns hd5,msdos1, the Windows

Adding the --no-floppy option to each produces the same result.

In /boot/grub/grub.cfg, the line "set root='(hd2,msdos1)'" is shown.  This
partition is "Not a known filesystem"

Grub is installed on hd0.  hd0 is PATA Maxtor 6L300R0 listed in the BIOS as
SCSI-1 and is connected to the mainboard by a PCI Raid card, Raid not
enabled-to allow PATA drives to be used on SATA mainboard.

hd5 is a WDC WD740GD SATA drive.

After the above tests, I retested GRUB and it inexplicably boot both system

I reviewed /var/log/dpkg.log from 11-26 thru 12-1 and found no grub updates.

I suppose the bug can be closed.
