Follow-up Comment #8, bug #43062 (project grub):

I'm sure my disk is using 4K sectors.

My BIOS seems to consider the Western Digital disk to be (potentially)
bootable -- the drive is offered as one of the options when booting
non-secure, non-UEFI.

I understand that the current code written to the boot sector, and the current
code in core.img, may not work when the disk has 4K sectors.  I'm mildly
interested in the possibility that the code could be changed to work when
sectors are 4K.

Can anyone tell me:

Is the core.img that's copied to sector 1 of the boot device the same as the
core.img that ends up in ${boot-directory}/grub/i386-pc?

Should I be able to find the string "/boot/grub" in core.img?
