Hi,

A system had trouble booting which used to boot fine. It was having trouble
mounting root disk and changing hda1 to sda1 in the grub config menu.1st
fixed the problem. My question is this, since menu.1st itself resides on
hard disk. How does the system manage to read this before hard disk is
mounted?
