I think thats the wrong solution. That will fix the boot, but sda
1. for boot, the kernel command line has to be root=LABEL=[label]
2. for /etc/fstab, change referennces to e.g. /dev/sda1 to
the external disk and
sdb the internal one.
I believe you can write a udev rule to force the internal disk to sda
Correct. Have grub (or lilo) boot based on label, not by /dev/sd?.
I stand to be corrected here, but I modified legacy Grub to be able to
boot based on label: that is not possible AFAIK with the Debian version:
you have to specify:
And I changed that to:
find /<file name>
root FILE=/<file name>
So now you can use labels *only*.
It is reported that grub2 allows you to do this with scripts, but I had
bad luck (TM) with using that in Sid.
