Easy does not recognize partition table of sata drive containing linux distros
I have vista installed on two striped disks, the vista bootloader on an IDE disk and three linux distros (ubuntu,fedora, suse) on a sata disk. Ubuntu's grub contains the other two distros and is installed in the MBR of the sata disk. At this moment I boot from the sata disk using grub, but I'd prefer to boot from the IDE disk using Easy BCD 1.72. I have tried it with grub not installed in the boot sector and with neo grub. I copied the ubuntu bootloader into neo grub and now I get the ubuntu grub bootloader on screen when I start from the IDE disk and opt for neo grub.
But when I try to start any of the operating systems I get the following warning twice:
Warning: Unrecognized partition table for drive 80. Please rebuild it using a Microsoft compatible FDISK tool (error=23) Current C/H/S= 16383/253/633
In between the the repeated warning it says: root= (hd0,5)
(hd0,5) is the boot partition of fedora. When I start ubuntu or suse it gives of coaurse the partition belonging to these distros.
