Follow-up Comment #12, bug #46700 (project grub):

Okay guys, so next time someone comes around with a question about 4KN drives
and BIOS and GRUB, tell him the following:

Booting from 4Kn drives is and will NEVER be supported by BIOS (AKA legacy
BIOS AKA LEGACY). The ONLY solution for 4Kn AF drives is to boot via UEFI.

It's indeed the BIOS' fault and GRUB has nothing to do with it. 
More than that, I propose printing a warning message immediately someone is
trying to boot from such a drive under non-UEFI environment or maybe even if
someone is `ls (hd0)` such a drive. 

And, btw, sadly, I didn't consult supermicro KB initially as they have hell
lot of questions about 4Kn and legacy BIOS.
