Re: Dual Boot on Two Drives
I didn't realize that there was a problem with booting with GRUB installed into the MBR. What happens to GRUB that causes problems if it is located in the MBR? I need to know before a problem comes up. The installer always recognizes the other installed OS(s) and always tells me that there shouldn't be any problems if it puts GRUB into the MBR of sda.
GRUB updates the config when a kernel is updated which is handy, I think.
Nothing bad happens, it's just that there are a few machines that grub has trouble automatically configuring itself in, and if the user doesn't know how to configure Grub, and is too shy to ask for help, they become distressed and sometimes angry.
Grub can easily be configured most of the time if the user gets help, or does a little reading and learns how to use Grub.
