When updating Karmic alpha2 to alpha3, grub2 was modified and grub 
legacy removed. However configfile grub.cfg was rendered unusable and 
was unable to launch any OS in it.

Made a bug report.


Public bug reported:

karmic 64
linux 2.6.30-9

Grub2 fails to launch any OS.
Rectified by modifying grub.cfg of the lines
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 4afcadf1-b2a6-..........
search  --fs-uuid --set 4afcadf1-b2a6-..........
ie., by removing "--no-floppy"

Note: this was done by launching my hardy partition through a dedicated 
boot partition(grub legacy)
and modifying the grub.cfg of the karmic partition.
