I think you misunderstood, or maybe I have messed up something. In any 
case, since B_GET_BIOS_DRIVE_ID should currently fail, only the 
partitions from the target volume are added to the menu. And I can at 
least confirm that it does work this way on my test machines.

Did you actually experience this problem, or were you just confused by 
my earlier explanations? :-)

In any case, I liked the code quality in BootManager, I think you did a 
good job there.

Bye,
   Axel.
