Hi Again,

I found an alternate solution to my problem: I simply disabled the ZISD at startup. I found many post saying that it is not possible but it seems it is (or at least this step resolved my booting problem). That is why I take the liberty to write it here, although not directly related to Grub.

What you have to do is to create the following String Value using regedit:
ZISWIN Disabled
and set it to 1

The exact location of the key and more informations can be found here:

I would still be interested in a Grub update that manage to avoid this stupid ZISD MBR modification.

Thanks !
