Solution for error: hd0 out of disk

I’ve installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a USB pendrive and it booted fine. But when I put it into my new PC I got the grub error: “hd0 out of disk”.
I could boot manually by typing
ls (hd0,msdos1)/
insmod (hd0,msdos1)/boot/grub/linux.mod

But I couldn’t get grub to automatically do this.

The solution was simply updating the BIOS of the motherboard (MSI 890FXA-GD70).

Hope this helps someone :)

  1. [...] The only thing that bothered me with this setup is the USB drive. It’s noticeable slower compared to a normal disk and I had to flash the mainboard bios to get it to boot. [...]
