Follow-up Comment #8, bug #35354 (project grub):

Yes, I believe in my case the disk id is taken from the disk, not the BIOS. I
never checked that, really.

My BIOS is dated from 2007.

I'll just have to work around duplicate UUIDs by send the 'tune2fs -U random
/dev/sdXN' command from either a live CD or a bootable disk after each restore
of partition or disk cloning I perform between disks. On the same disk that's
fine, but on a different disk I will have to change the UUID and then possibly
re-run 'grub update' so that the new UUID is copied into the grub config
files. I hope it does!

It will take more time for testing as I have to include these extra steps but
if it's reliable and work nicely I can live with it.

And nothing prevents me from using disk-ID in fstab.
