while following this  link: :
to read more about GRUB 2 I found I did not have grub-pc
However after installing grub-pc tools booting  got stuck
 menu page; any selection ended up in :
"ERROR 11: unrecognized device".
However after editing first line of GRUB 2, which was:
root  <disk hardware no.>
root (hd0,5)
I could boot into Linux partition and run 'upgrade-from-grub-legacy'
which made booting normal with new look booting menu page.
Is this normal behaviour?
