I'm dual booting and have always installed the boot loader into the
MBR. I haven't had problems with that. Also, on my Dell notebook, the
recovery, media, and utility (advanced BIOS/diagnosing partition)
partitions were all correctly identified and were present in the boot
Also, you can check the UUIDs on your local machine (even from a live
cd!) by issuing the following command
ls -la /dev/disk/by-uuid/
or the respective mounted directory when using a live cd.
Your first problem might be related to the PATA and SATA hdds in your
PC, I allways had either PATA or SATA. But blaming those UUIDs isn't
the answer. I've repartitioned myself and only had to edit the entry
for my swap space.
