Grub woes with my 2 TB disk

This is my first time using a 2 TB disk. After performing a Ubuntu Karmic Update on it, it upgraded the kernel and it asked "Configure GRUB using the package maintainers version". What made me do this I don't know, but I think this totally messed me up. It seemed like it deleted the bios partition.

When the disk booted, it printed the following on the screen and then just hung


The fix for this whole mess, I loaded the Ubuntu bootup USB stick, and recreated the BIOS disk partition. After doing this, I executed /usr/sbin/grub-install /dev/sda, then everything started working.
