My understanding, as a user of GRUB, was that GRUB relied on the system BIOS to perform any disk I/O, thunk to RM to invoke INT 0x13 for all disk accesses.

Is the disk controller visible for the system BIOS? Can you boot off of it? Is there a bios disk number assigned to it? Does it play nice with the BIOS Boot Specification or does hook INT 19?

I am having a problem with GRUB 1 and 2. It seems that neither version correctly works with my IDE controller. I have 2 hdds but grub (both versions) only recognize the first. From what I can determine, I am unique in having this problem and the only way to get it fixed is to do it myself. So, here is my request - can someone point me to the module that would determine the type of IDE controller installed where I would have to insert some code to have the controller report the correct number of hdds attached? I have downloaded the source code for grub2.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
