Hello, all. It was discovered that on macs sometimes firmware defines
ghost disks with vendor suffix. E.g.
is a normal disks with partitions presented with HD(...) but then
is a ghost disk. It has as suffix a vendor path with empty vendor data.
This is a problem because when chainloading on such disks GRUB can't
find handle of partition as none is defined. I propose to dkip ghosts
completely. This should be safe as the skip happens only for empty Apple
vendor suffix and if the parent is already a known disk.
Did anyone see anything similar?
