Comment 92 for bug 8497

I believe that this situation still exists with 8.04 (which as LTS I'm trying to install). I don't have a CD drive, so i'm installing from a USB key. The BIOS on the Sun x2200 sees the usb key as a type of hard disk. During install it is registered as /dev/sda, with the (single) SATA disk as /dev/hdb.

Of course after I remove the USB key the order of the disks changes in the BIOS (since the usb key is not present). This results in the Grub Error 22. Rescue mode grub reinstall does nothing to fix this.

Will the fix discussed in #90 be backported to 8.04?
