    Hard Disk not booting

    I have bought a new 250GB sata HD.I partitioned it with gparted with /boot as primary and remaining in extended type.I installed feisty fawn.The problem is the hard disk is not booting directly.
    I hav to put the CD and select "Boot from first hard disk" option to boot.I want to know whether i hav made a mistake or the problem is with the hard disk.
    Thaks in advance.

    Did you install GRUB to the MBR or to the /boot partition ?

    Thanks for ur reply Dave2k6. I solved it by giving the boot flag to my extended partition using GParted.
