Follow-up Comment #10, bug #35354 (project grub):

Ok. I see disk-IDs are not reliable in some situations. I just happen to work
differently with grub-legacy. I just started using grub2, so I am still
learning new ways I guess.

Well for updating disk-ids that's the best part. I use 2 versions of fstab
files from grub-legacy (cuz I use grub-legacy at the moment) that I just swap
part of my image restore script, so I only need to do the setup once, I keep 2
files, one for disk1 disk-ids and one for disk2 disk-ids and they just get
renamed accordingly, part of the restore script. Since I don't need to
regenerate a disk-id and the way I work with it they are reliable on my setup,
I never end up manually updating disk-ids.

But you know I could modify my script and include regenerating a UUID and
updating grub on the drive I restore it to, I'm sure I can work out something.

I'll learn how to use UUIDs correctly for my setup.
