I don't agree. Clearly, his BIOS could boot up the CD itself, and GRUB failed 
in recognizing the drive.

That sounds about right.  It can boot from the CD (and other install CDs) but GRUB doesn't seem to want to find it.

I always doubt that the drive detection code for CD 
drives in GRUB is buggy. Unfortunately, I don't have such a drive or BIOS 
which does not work with GRUB, so I cannot debug it myself.

Is there any debugging I can start to do?
