Comment 20 for bug 496435

The problem is that Grub doesn't identify SATA drives in the same order as the
BIOS. It is really easy to see if you have 3 SATA drives and each have
different sizes.

I have argued and argued and argued and argued, but I keep hitting a stone
wall. FreeDOS and Windows both manage to identify hardware in the same order
as the BIOS, they even honor BIOS overrides which change drive ordering, but
Grub....not so much.
