I have a laptop (Dell E6520) with a second SSD installed in a drive caddy. Windows 7 is installed on the primary drive (legacy boot). The second drive has Ubuntu installed (ubuntu-13.10-desktop-amd64) along with an NTFS partition. I used bootRepair to repair common problems. The BIOS is set to boot from the primary drive. It boots to the selection window and allows selection of either the Linux or Windows, both of which boot normally.
HOWEVER, I if I pull the drive caddy and put the DVD device back in the system will not boot (grub rescue). From the bootRepair summary, I think the boot process it pointing to grub.cfg on the second drive and thus won't boot when that is pulled. http://paste.ubuntu.com/6733690/
Is it possible to put the boot files (grub.cfg) on the primary drive and set up the boot process to look there so that I can boot to Windows when the DVD device is installed and otherwise select Linux or Windows when the drive caddy is in?
