How it did it is simple enough, probably via assembler and a BIOS
call, and what it did was change the boot order of my SATA disks. To
be precise, it moved the disk with Ubuntu aboard (/dev/sdb) to the
top of the pile. I normally boot via /dev/sdc which contains my
work-a-day Kubuntu system and I get to Ubuntu (and Windows 7 on
/dev/sda) when necessary via grub.
BIOS can't it?
The boot order, as stored in the BIOS, was altered *during* the distribution upgrade. Cause and effect seem fairly simple to deduce. ;-)
