Hi Michael,

Adding more patches to GRUB Legacy just makes it harder to maintain,
since upstream won't accept them.

If GRUB 2 has a bug, why don't you try to fix that instead?

For what I can see in your report to upstream, it could be a bug that we
fixed in the package (I fixed a few that look like this one).  Have you
tried with the debian package?  If so, please do file a bug report.

It could also be because of the numbering scheme transition.  Partitions
now count from 1 instead of 0 (drives still count from 0).  This would
explain this error:

  datadump:~# grub-setup --root-device='(hd0,0)' '(hd0)'
  grub-setup: error: unknown device
