The drive assignment as seen by the LiveCD isn't important. The Ubuntu
hasn't booted yet. However it is important how the USB drive is see by
Grub, This I can tell you: hd1 (hd0 is the physon ssd)
To be able to boot from it Grub must also know where the /boot (or /
if you do not have a seperate /boot) partition is. Usually this is the
first partition on the disk, so it should be 1.
Therefore the drive assignment you should use to set a grub mbr is: (hd0,1)
I trust you have enough knowledge of Grub to use this?
There are two kinds of people:
1. People who start their arrays with 1.
1. People who start their arrays with 0.
