Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

Hello
My system is composed by two disks:
1-ide master (80 GB) that partman show me as sdb (the disk where i've tested 20110413)
2-sata showed as sda (with another natty install with an older kernel)
On three installations i've got two failure with grub written in sda, but this is not the master and it is not setted in the bios boot order.
This happens not all the times, but many times it fail.
See attached screenshots
