Default Bug#488466: linux-image-2.6-686: Post-install script creates bad /boot/grub/menu.lst "hd" entries

Package: linux-image-2.6-686
Version: 2.6.24+13
Severity: important


After an upgrade to the latest kernel and restarting the computer Grub failed to boot. It turned out that the menu entries in
/boot/grub/menu.lst were pointing to an invalid disk, that is, I got

root (hd1,0)

instead of the correct

root (hd0,0)


After editing the boot command Linux booted fine.

My system has the following disk configuration:

/dev/sda (SATA HDD):
/dev/sda1 / ext3
/dev/sda5 swap

/dev/hda (IDE CD-ROM)

/dev/fd0 Floppy
