Hmmm.... I've tried that. I've tried mkinitrd -r /dev/sdb1 too... The problem seems to be me having root on a SATA-drive.... My menu.lst-entry is for 2.6.7 (working): title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.7 root (hd0,2) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.7 root=/dev/hdg1 ro initrd /initrd.img-2.6.7 savedefault boot My menu.lst-entry is for 2.6.8 (non-working): title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-3-amd64-k8 root (hd0,2) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.8-3-amd64-k8 root=/dev/sdb1 ro initrd /initrd.img-2.6.8-3-amd64-k8 savedefault boot Suggestions? I have two different /etc/fstab with either hdg and sdb Patrick Flaherty (firstname.lastname@example.org) wrote: > Hacking initrd seems overkill.... > next time you boot go down to the line in grub that says > kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/hdXX > to > kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdXX > > sdXX should be the drive and your root partition.
