Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub

Here are some of my gusses. Yet I'm not a technical person. Gparted lists this partition as /dev/sda2 and in Grub it is HDD0,2. It is an NTFS partition. Didn't resize it. Gets mounted in Nautilus without a problem. What's the problem with it, then!?

Could it be 'cause it is ont the #one partition? On my other computer it works without a problem. The bootable ntfs partition is the first one on disk.

It's a GREAT problem. Need it solved.
