It's up to you. View for instance :-


Boris, I don't even know why pygrub is having such a problem with the partitioning. There is only one 83 partition and it contains /boot. Why can't pygrub see this? It's a normal Linux partition, not LVM or anything exotic. It is apparently because pygrub cannot even read extended partitions. And how long have extended partition reading algorithms been around? 20 years?
