I hope it is not because you have used the same labelname for your
partitions (without realizing it) or had 'reused' the same labelname and
the grub-device map was looking at the old partition.

No - most definitely not!

At least, Barry, you've got this sorted out and I am glad.

Remember this? :-

menuentry 'PCLOS Live' {
linux (hd0,1)/isolinux/vmlinuz vga=788 livecd=livecd fromusb root=/dev/sda1 acpi=on fstab=rw,noauto
initrd (hd0,1)/isolinux/initrd.gz

(Excuse wrapping) well, in my quest to get rid of sdxx, (hdx,y) and UUIDs, I tried this:-

menuentry 'PCLOS Live test' {
search --no-floppy --label --set maingrub
linux /isolinux/vmlinuz vga=788 livecd=livecd fromusb root=label=maingrub acpi=on fstab=rw,noauto
initrd /isolinux/initrd.gz

...and it works! go figure?

I wonder if grub version has a bearing on this? I am using 1.97 beta4
is that the latest? - and which are you using.

Another odd thing :-
this works also

menuentry 'Ubuntu 10.04' {
search --no-floppy --label --set ubuntu
chainloader +1

So why does Ubuntu's grub2 chainload when my 1.97b4 version won't?

Now I understand why most distros are cautious about moving to grub2 ;-/
