Bug Description

When the LVPM alters menu.lst it puts the the original wubi install (with loop mounted code removed) into the automagic kernels list. This gives error 17 on default boot. This should be changed to put the dedicated partition install into the automagic kernels list. This may seem trivial but it causes problems when the kernel is updated. I dont know if this has already been resolved by any updates

I also tried to upgrade to grub 2 and it detected correctly my partitions, bu I still don't know what will happen afte a kernel upgrade.

For you question about updates, there was no since 2008 summer and I got LVPM after that with the same issue you have, so I don't think it was solved

Thanks for the follow up

regards
