Ubiquity doesn't handle the case of /boot being on a different partition from /

Bug #115406 reported by David Mills on 2007-05-18
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

When I installed ubuntu 7.04 on a laptop, I made /boot a seperate partition, to get arround a possible cylinder 1024 bug.

The install finished fine, but grub wasn't configured correctly, the entries for Ubuntu referenced my / partition, using /boot/... instead of referencing my boot partition, using the path /vmlinuz...

This can be worked arround by tweeking grub on first boot and then fixing /boot/grub/menu.lst but only for an experienced user.
