There are 4 SATA drives. sda and sdb have DOS disk labels, sdc and sdd have GPT disk labels. The selected partition is on sdc which has a GPT label.
GRUB boots any partition on any disk (25 other root partititions are scattered among the drives). Later on I'm going to choose "Do not install boot loader" anyway, because my booting scheme cannot be described in a way that anconda understands.
