Follow-up Comment #1, bug #29464 (project grub):


I've noticed that the workaround gives an incorrect set of options for using
dd to write to the disk. Please DO NOT use that command as it will try to
truncate the output.

It should read:

4. Write the nops into the boot sector (replace /dev/sda if necessary with
the boot device name on *your* system):

 sudo dd if=/tmp/nop.bin of=/dev/sda conv=notrunc bs=2 count=1 seek=102
