Brief Description on this defect:

The bootable USB stick which is made by ocs-live-dev cannot boot correctly.

Found in version: 1.2.12-67-i686-pae

Reproduce steps:

0. Assumption: USB stick is located /dev/sdb1

1. Boot from the Clonezilla ISO, enter the console prompt with root permission

2. mkfs.ext2 /dev/sdb1

3. /opt/drbl/sbin/ocs-live-dev -s -d /dev/sdb1

4. Reboot with the USB stick

Expected Result: the USB stick boot normally as the Clonezilla CD did

Actual Result: it stuck with 'grub>' prompt

Root Cause Analysis:

ocs-live-dev just installed the legacy configuration of GRUB (i.e. menu.lst), but not the configuration of GRUB2 (i.e. grub.lst)
