I have exactly the same problem, I installed Mint onto an IDE drive, all worked well, I then hooked up my other three SATA drives, and now I can't boot up until I pull the SATA cables from my computer.
This is my first dabble with linux, so I am a real NOOB here, I understand the answer above but just dont know how to change the drive names around, anyone care to tell me how to do this.
