Follow-up Comment #9, bug #15048 (project grub):

I can confirm that it comes from the Microsoft dynamic disk partitioning
scheme activation.
Because I've just changed the scheme from basic to dynamic on a working dual
boot WinXP/Ubuntu and it does not work anymore.

I've booted with a Gentoo LiveCD, chrooted into my Ubuntu Linux, reinstalled
grub [setup (hd0)], then I could use GRUB again.
But, since I've been once again in WinXP, GRUB is broken by XP again, and I
have to do it all over.

Does grub-ldm can really solve this problem as XP seems to be deleting the
Is there a "grub-ldm" binary version that I could directly download and use
for Ubuntu (or other x86 distrib) ?

Extra Note : my config is the following :
HD1 (IDE) Part 1 : C:> ntfs  (Dynamic volume) WinXP
          Part 2 : D:> ntfs
HD2 (SATA) Part 1 : E:> ntfs
           Part 2 : Linux swap /dev/sda2
           Part 3 : Linux Ubuntu root /dev/sda3
