heh, i just posted about this.  read this doc:


essentially, you have GRUB loaded on one disk but not on the other.   
you need go into the GRUB console and manually install it on the  
other disk.  it's described in the doc.


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an  
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
