Update of bug #28149 (project grub):

                  Status:                    None => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

GRUB2 supports hybrid GPT. It has even a tool gptsync for manipulating MBR of
hybrid GPT. However Hybrid GPT has to have protective entry in MBR as its
first entry and I see no reason to break this rule, especially that hybrid GPT
is just a kludge for legacy systems and often is worse as either GPT or MSDOS.
So your partition table is just invalid. Contact the developpers of whatever
tool created it and say that protective entry has to be the first one
