1. what did you use as boot manager grub?

Yep - default install.

2. how did you create new partitions? what program did you use?

11.1 partition manager.

3. just boot from a live cd

# fdisk -l

and post it.

As a guess, there may be a bug when you have grub stage one in the MBR
and grub stage 2 on /dev/sda6 (per the private email).

I have never tried having grub stage 2 on anything but a primary
partition and I doubt many other people do either, so it does not get
tested that way very often.
