grub on 2nd SATA

Postby D1Wayne on Mon Apr 30, 2007 2:39 am

have a rough draft of the path taken for my configuration.
http://www.isnbiz.com/lm/grubs.html

As some of us have found out Feisty changes how the drives are referenced.
so I wrote the above guide as a reminder in case I need to repeat it myself.

any suggestion or comments welcomed.

Thanks. I'll add that to the wiki - or you could try to do it yourself :)

Perhaps before we do that, we might see if there is a willing soul (guinea pig) out there that is trying to do this also, and see what their results are.

have a hunch, since I did NOT modify the /boot/grub/device.map, until after the upgrade to 7.04 (leaving me with a un-bootable drive (fell back to Mint boot and mounted the Feisty drive, found the error of my ways, fixed device.map by,
changing the uuids in menu.lst (upgrade did leave sdb1 references but the uuid it had where for sda1 (Biancas drive) so had to replace them, and like magic the drive is bootable.

after re-checking /boot/grub/menu.lst 3 re-boot s later, to my surprise no more
root=/dev/sd.. anywhere. and folder /dev/disk also gone.

I'm assuming that is new in Feisty:-)

Also need to find a cheap (time-wise) of getting the default boot drive order accomplished short of a kernal change on Bianca that is

I've heard something to that effect.
BTW uuid is a horrible thing - they can change suddenly and unexpectedly :(
