BUG: 10.10 Beta1: MAJOR GRUB ISSUE
Grub does not detect all partitions possibly because a
system has both a rescue partition and a main partition for
Windows. Happened to me on 2 Vista machines. Reinsalling
Vista did not fix the problem. Also tried to reinstall GRUB
and update it without success. Also tried and failed with
the Vista bootrec commands.
For newbies and many Linux users, this is a worst case
horror scenario. People are going to be furious, installing
side-by-side and loosing access to Windows totally. Many
will never come back to Linux... meaning also less support...
I finally added an entry to grub.cfg (which will be deleted
at the next update) but most newbies and many Linux users
will not know how to do this. The partition and boot info
was there, all GRUB had to do was list it!
THIS ABSOLUTELY NEED TO BE FIXED... BETTER ONE ADDITIONAL
ENTRY THAN A MAIN ONE MISSING!
Thanks. Great Work!
