Yes, if you read my message again, you'll see that we already
discovered this (except for the Vista hibernation part - does Fedora
hibernation care which is active?). My question is, given that this
is the case, why does the F11 installer change the active partition if
it doesn't have to?
It might be the drive partitioner, rather than grub, doing it. There's
two things you'd have to check on.
It might be important for some BIOSs which partition(s) are active, but
it hasn't mattered on computers I've played with in the past, as far as
I can recall.
It's possibly even more important regarding hibernation, or more to the
point, waking up from hibernation. I've messed around, a bit, with dual
boot. And hiberating one OS, then another, it doesn't always resume the
Windows hibernation, but the Linux one always resumed (and without any
GRUB menu popping up for me to decide whether to resume this OS or that.
