When I attempted to boot to the SSD, there was a message about not being able to connect to device <super long string of characters> and entered grub rescue mode, which I didn't even know was a thing (command prompt is 'grub rescue' instead of just 'grub').
I was able to bring the SSD back with the following steps:
Code: Select all
grub rescue> set prefix =(hd0,msdos1)/grub grub rescue> set root=(hd0,msdos1) grub rescue> insmod normal grub rescue> normal
Any idea why this would happen?
Are there further repairs or checks I should perform?
Is there an easy way to create a header backup? I have an image backup, but in the event something more serious happens, I'd rather not have to dig into that just to extract the header. It seems like something that would be in the Disks utility.
Is there some sort of issue with having to separate OS drives installed at the same time?
