    I just noticed that Windows & Ubuntu are on the same hard drive, therefore you don't need the map lines e.g.:
    Code:
    title Windows XP
    root (hd0,0)
    makeactive
    chainloader +1

    Hi Confused,

    With those people with so many drives or with bad detected drives I have written a kind of howto on the hard disk boot order.

    Please feel free to use it in your answers.

    And if you want to improve it by adding an actual example (about ubuntu not generating a valid menu.lst) you are also welcomed to do so.

    Thanks Adrian,
    Your howto looks very helpful, I have bookmarked the link and I know it will definitely help users with multiple hard drives. I have one pc with 3 hard drives & have had 2 different distros(Mepis & Sabayon) incorrectly assign the grub boot order compared to bios boot order. I was able to modify the grub menu of the 2 distros, but Super Grub Disk would have made it easier.
