pjones, I know we worked out a patch for this.  Where did it go?

Matt -- is this in now or do I need to hunt it down?
Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2009-05-04 17:25:39 EDT
not sure, looks like it from the changelog.  Stuart has been doing the EFI testing, so reassigning NEEDINFO to him. :-)
Comment 6 Stuart Hayes 2009-05-05 17:07:42 EDT
I just used grub (0.97-47) to boot to a disk that an MBR partition table, with one partition of type 0xEF, and it worked, so I guess this is fixed.
