IDE SATA boot problems

Postby stickler on Sat Aug 01, 2009 12:05 pm

:? :? Newbie to LM7 and need help!!
Error 22 on the GRUB loader when I connect the SATA drive to my rig. I have checked the forum about this problem (IDE mixed SATA boot problems) but am out of my depth re. the solution :oops: .It seems to have something to do with boot priority or editing /boot/grub/device.map. Present set up on 60Gb IDE,

/dev/sda1 XP 43GB
/dev/sda2 extended
/dev/sda5 ext3 / 12GB
/dev/sda6 linux-swap 600MiB

/dev/sdb 320Gb IDE Data Unable to mount in LM but ok in XP.Get the error details "NTFS signature is missing.Failed to mount 'dev/sdb1'

/dev/sdc 500Gb Back up External drive(USB).

So firstly how do I configure my rig to accept the SATA drive without messing up the boot loader, and secondly, how can I mount /dev/sba.
Would appreciate simple answers if possible.
Peace Out
Stickler

I hope you find the wiki simple - some think it is simple some that it is over their head.....

:) I think I understand, should I exchange the UUID for all the drives or just the one where GRUB is loaded which I think was (hd0). Is there a way I can check where GRUB is loaded?
:?: Also do you have any sugestion regards the unable to mount problem?

Use UUID for all drives in menu.lst
For sdb which you cannot mount you get the error
"NTFS signature is missing.Failed to mount 'dev/sdb1'

This is an unclean partition - boot into Windows and make a normal shutdown
If that does not help you should let Windows check the disk - this can be time consuming I know that

:) Thanks for the UUID info, will edit menu.lst as soon as I sort out mount problem.
I have already tried this sugestion to no avail, have noticed references to ntfsfix in the forum, is this something I should try and is it already a command in Terminal or do I have to download it?

You can see the uuid lists, if you check in a terminal
blkid
In terminal, check
    blkid
    /dev/sda1: UUID="54.." TYPE="ntfs"
    /dev/sda5: UUID="c48.." TYPE="ext3"
    /dev/sda6: TYPE="swap" UUID="d9.."
    /dev/sdb1: UUID="c61..." SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext
