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

Comment 3 Vaclav "sHINOBI" Misek 2009-03-31 10:35:21 UTC
Is it solved by the grub-0.97-44.fc11 package from todays Rawhide?

Matt -- is this in now or do I need to hunt it down?

Comment 5 Matt Domsch 2009-05-04 21:25:39 UTC
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 21:07:42 UTC
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.
