I have a dual boot system...
1. Ide hard drive with WinXP
2. SATA hard drive with swap, an extended partition containing Karmic and Natty.
Windows drive has it's own MBR bootloader. Ubuntu drive has grub2 installed in it's MBR. The bios is set to boot cdrom first, SATA second, and the Win drive last. All drives/partitions boot.
I recently noticed a blurb flash by while booting Natty that said that it was unable to mount the swap partition. It would do this on an irregular basis. After multiple edits of fstab and initramfs-tools' conf.d; updating same; purging and reinstalling grub2; deleting/re-making the swap partition swap finally has been auto-mounted on a regular basis (for the last two days).
What bugs me is that Karmic and Natty STILL show different partition info (both on the same drive). Is there a known bug with grub/upstart/mountall etc. that causes this? I have attached two screenshots to help whoever has an idea about what's going on.
BTW, boot-info-script's Results.txt shows the same goofy info when run on Natty.
