To simulate brain damage of your BIOS
*shrug* I wonder how you can manage to simulate _that_ severe damage.

echo '(hd0)  /dev/loop0'>  /boot/grub/
D'oh, didn't think of hardcoding it, I thought GRUB detects it properly.

However, phcoder, there were some crackheads back in January taking some time with that matter and I tried almost every hack discussed on the net. And out of nothing comes you, applying yet another hack and it just seems to work. You're a true hero. :D However when doing "ls (hd0)" in the GRUB rescue shell that fires up, I'm getting "Partition table". I guess this is part of the hack? Is it possible to apply this workaround in the codebase so that others with that broken BIOS (remember I have another MBR file of a guy who reported identical behaviour) or is this something that should be left to people with broken BIOS? All in all, thank you very much, now that I have a rescue shell, I can start playing.

If you still don't like it, that's ok: that's why I'm boss. I simply know better than you do.
