I've just updated again the kernel and the update-grub bug is still happens.
Today (07/06/08) I've updated the system through update manager and the kernel was updated to 126.96.36.199.20.
Then ucf ask for an option about what to do with menu.lst option, and i selected 1st ("used the new proposed" or something similar).
So update-grub updates the kernel list, but changes disk id:
root=hd(0,5) -> root=hd(0,0)
I've to say that is a partition with winxp, but it hasn't to be a cause for such a bug.
In a new user, it means a broken system and could be hard to fix. For experienced user, a simple livecd boot will help to access to the filesystem and fix it.
I've installed ubuntu 8.04 in a fresh install and every kernel update
i've the same bug. (2 kernel updates from ubuntu release at 21/04/08).
