It has the bad habit of installing on the MBR of other discs. That's why when I install windows I always unplug my linux drives, just don't like fixin it.

If I were you, I would get each drive booting with all the other drives unplugged so you know you are getting the correct drive. THEN if you get errors I would report it.
Wait, Windows installs on ALL the MBRs? That would explain so much...

So if I unplug my Linux drive and repair install Windows, then plug my Linux drive back in... Windows will work when I select it in GRUB?

Yeah it has a habit of doing things like that, you might want to try it. =P

[edit] It's more like it has the habit of installing to the boot device, rather than the drive you are installing it to. =( I have had it do quirky things though, like decide that my spare drive needed an MBR. =S (and take out grub, ect...)
