2006-05-03 12:09:46 Simon Law description I have nforce4 motherboard, sata and pata HD primary HD is sata and it is configured via bios as boot disk, but installer writed GRUB to MBR off PATA disk so I needed to change in bios primary disk in order to boot ubuntu. The user has an nForce4 motherboard with both SATA and ATA drives attached. He set the SATA drive to be the first boot disk, but the installer installed GRUB on to the ATA drive instead.

He set the SATA drive to be the first boot disk in the BIOS, but the installer installed GRUB on to the PATA drive instead. Linux recognizes the PATA as /dev/sda and the SATA as /dev/sdb. To work around the problem, he has set the first boot disk to the PATA drive.

Some with PATA present, some without. I do not have enough technical understanding to find exact duplicates. Bug #8497 #75676 #32357 #110292
