Please clarify how you're choosing which device to boot.  BIOS or GRUB?
If GRUB, please show us your current configuration.  Remapping options
may confuse things, for instance, and may not be needed.

First BOIS. It is all done automatically and both settings are on "auto". I can find no way to set them otherwise.

As you see I call grub for the new f7-64 bit with chainloader. It looks like:
#boot=/dev/sdb
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd1,2)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)
       root (hd1,2)
       kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
       initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img
[[email protected] grub]#

This is odd because to get the grub.conf on the f7-64 I had to mount -t ext3 /dev/sdf3.
A lot does not make sense. But it does work.
