Re: stuck in initramfs mode, can't mount disk
OK. I found the solution and thought I'd post it.
I fired this out there because I was running short on time.

Basically, it's editing the grub menu to get it booted, then editing
some files. Everything was set to sdb instead of sda.

I'm having a problem.
The install goes well but after rebooting it can't mount the disk
I get the following at the console.
Check root = bootarg cat /proc /cmdline or missing modules,
devices: cat /proc/modules
ls /dev ALERT! /dev/sdb1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell

Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
