Today I tried installing Fedora 15 on a 1TB USB hard drive. The layout of my USB drive is given below
/dev/sda1 NTFS 40G
/dev/sda5 NTFS 40G
/dev/sda6 NTFS 40G
/dev/sda7 NTFS 40G
/dev/sdc1 NTFS 808G
/dev/sdc2 ext4 / 96 G
/dev/sdc3 swap 4096M
So while doing installation by mistake a I selected to install GRUB in first boot sector of /dev/sdc2 instead of MBR.
The installation was successful but while trying to boot using USB drive it fails and fall back to primary hard drive.
After that I boot using rescue mode and try to install the GRUB in the MBR of /dev/sdc but then also I was not able to boot as while trying to boot I got the menu but when select to boot in linux it fails and fall back to primary hard drive.
Below is the grub conf file output
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd2,1)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sdc2
# initrd /boot/initrd-[generic-]version.img
