I upgraded grub from the mentioned ppa to my Lucid installation. After upgrade was finished I rebooted and went to Windows 7, and started Adobe Photoshop. After reboot, grub2 was still missing. I rebooted from the live CD and restored grub installation (in chroot), and got following message after 'grub-install /dev/sda':

/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: sector 9 is already in use by FlexNet; avoiding it.
Installation finished. No error reported.

I think that I needed to install grub twice in the MBR because I hadn't used any of the offending Adobe software because of this bug and in first install new grub didn't see any trace from the FlexNet. So to get rid of this bug you need to use offending app in windows and then fix grub installation once more using live CD.

I have now started Photoshop few times in Windows 7 and grub is still working and I can select Ubuntu, Windows 7 and MeeGo in the boot time. Thank you very much for your work done to fix this problem.
