Generally, it's a matter of re-installing grub2 and making sure that the
MBR is where it's located; I had this issue with a few "Green" drives
from Western Digital - initially, I had to resolve the issue by removing
the drive from the machine and dealing with it as an external - then it
was smooth after that.
