Re: [patch] search for partition using GPT GUID

My mail is actually a reply to the request for a use case from grub2
developers for for the gpt_guid.diff patch ( patch - and
question -
). This is a very nice feature and should definitely be integrated
into grub2 trunk.

If FS-UUIDs are sufficient then why does Microsoft use the Unique GUID
of a GPT partition in its Boot Configuration Data (equivalent to
grub.cfg, for Windows Boot Manager) instead of the part's NTFS
filesystem UUID for booting Windows (for example)?
