You still aren't listening, Bruce.
If you wish to send a meaningful technical report, you must include
diagnostic _data_ -- data gathered in real time, jotted down, and then
posted in chronological order. Posting offhand speculation about the
root cause of whatever your problems is, _that_ is not diagnostic data.
You keep doing that, and not getting help. Clue: That behaviour causes
the undesired outcome described, as an immediate and logical result.
Over and over.
> I suppose the other bug , you covered it very well
The fact that I was reduced to speculation about what the hell problem
you are trying to solve, _that alone_ should demonstrate to you just how
asstastic your technical report was, and now still is. It's not making
things a whole lot better for you to tell me I did an excellent job
detailing the problem I guessed you had, but that my guess was wrong.
Hell, you are not currently even bothering to tell us whether you're
trying to boot from GRUB2 in a filesystem or (as I recommended) in the MBR.
Nor do you provide the Debian bug URL, nor do you bother to quote any
diagnostic output you received. Not even one word of that output. Do
you _enjoy_ getting no help? If this just performance art?
And I don't believe there's anything about 'the first 500 bits of data'.
Perhaps 512 bytes -- but I'm wasting my time attempting to guess what
the hell problem you're talking about, and it's time to quit wasting it.
