Thank you for your polite reply! I have read the manual and maybe I am
just plain stupid but I could not find the answer to my question in
that link!  I am aware that arch follows upstream. But grub2 as
released is new. Can you tell me in which section the answer lies -
(there is a single reference to the post-MBR gap in that link but it
implies that it should be 1MiB in general and yet grub has worked
without it forever!) That is why I asked the question related to grub2
- if that means I am regarded as a complete idiot then I will shut up
and not raise this further - maybe I am the only arch user who fails
to know how to find the answer to this question.
