new drive causes problem

Postby archp2008 on Fri Jul 04, 2008 3:50 pm

When I reconnect a hard drive he boot ends with initramfs> This goes away when I disconnect the new drive so it won't let me multiboot to the other drive via BIOS.
Help?
Why the h.. do they have to have Save at the bottom here? I HATE it. Put it somewhere out of the way PLEASE. I keep hitting it by mistake instead of Submit.and cannot paste from user control later.

Well, the Save button in the forum will be where it is - it's phpBB3 specific, nothing we can do anything about - and so far I have not pushed the wrong button
Please describe your problem more and include facts about your hardware
I actually have the same problem (if I understand you right) but have so far not investigated it - time to do that now

The cause of this is because when the new disc is connected the disks change designation
I am looking into this right now and will return if I find a solution (which I must )
