Mint 5.0 want boot with a SATA drive connected

Postby jhouse59 on Tue Jul 22, 2008 1:06 am

I'm having a hard time to get my computer to boot to my Linux partition. At first I get the boot screen but, it goes to this
<quote>BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu12) Built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
(initramfs)</ quote>
I've got WindowsXP installed on one hard drive and Mint 5.0 on another. I just hooked up three more hard drives. One is a SATA drive. When I disconnect the the SATA drive. I can boot into Mint. I've got XP and Mint on different IDE hard drives. Is there a way that I can get this problem fixed?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
