The problem is that LMDE is using Drive PATHS in etc/fstab while Mint 10 uses UUID's.
Debian RC1 now sets up UUID's so a new LMDE re-spin using the new Debian Installer will solve the problem in the future..........
In the meantime you can edit the etc/fstab file after a successful boot replacing the drive paths with UUID's.
As seeley points out, running “sudo blkid” will give you a list of your drive UUID's.
/dev/sda1: UUID="6e660685-a080-4ee5-a704-95339b2c7497" TYPE="ext4" LABEL="sdb"
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="sdc" UUID="7aee2b49-e9e9-4301-8ff4-88443710d3da" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sdc1: LABEL="sdd" UUID="3745552f-e117-4782-a205-c9102c0a3982" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sde1: LABEL="/" UUID="99a02904-a906-40f4-9cad-b8e17e34b3cb" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sde5: UUID="cfa3f984-cd0e-47d9-8fdf-2e87b9e68584" TYPE="swap"
Edit your etc/fstab file replacing the start of each drive path line with the corresponding drive UUID as listed when you ran sudo blkid example:
The following UUID's are only examples, YOURS WILL BE DIFFERENT....
KEEP THE SPACING IN THE fstab columns, it is important!.
Comment out any spurious lines in fstab, for instance you may have two proc lines,
you need to end up with fstab looking something like this:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=d7537bbc-2605-44a7-a949-0bbb8468af78 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /sdb was on /dev/sdb1 during installation
UUID=c9174c69-3ebd-4a49-9f90-fffa66947a09 /sdb ext4 defaults 0 2
# /sdc was on /dev/sdc1 during installation
UUID=bd75874a-0da4-481e-8327-561a6e3df517 /sdc ext4 defaults 0 2
# /sdd was on /dev/sdd1 during installation
UUID=5f44f905-b29d-4c72-89d5-353e9cdaf89c /sdd ext4 defaults 0 2
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=78aeab26-ae10-4956-b783-4026388eb6ba none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
If you have added and formatted a drive AFTER installation making it a STORAGE DRIVE as opposed to a
SYSTEM DRIVE, in fstab you would enter the mount point as /media/sd(x) example: /media/sda and not as shown in blkid
