genhdlist doing something funny!



Perhaps someone can explain what is going on here because I can't see
how this can't be a bug.

1. Take Fedora Core test 1 disk 1 and copy the contents to a tree on
your hard disk.
2. Burn a cd from that tree in the normal way and boot from it.
3. Select a custom install and then untick all packages (this will make
it install from just this one disk and not require any of the other
three).
4. You will notice that everything works fine, it installs and no
problems booting after.

NOW:
5. Using the tree of disk 1 from point 1. above.
6. Run genhdlist to regenerate the hdlist and hdlist2 files in the base
directory.
7. Burn a cd from the tree in the normal way and boot from it.
8. Select a custom install and then untick all packages (this will make
it install from just this one disk again).
9. You will notice that everything seems to install fine but when the
system reboot it will not boot with a File not found error from Grub.

Grub is looking for vmlinuz in the /boot partition but I have connected
to the installation using a rescue disk and the /boot partition is
missing several files such as: vmlinuz-xxxxx initrd-xxxxx.img and some
others.

How can regenerating the hdlist from an unchanged disk1, doing an
install that only uses disk 1 cause this failure?
