I just got a Guruplug server a couple of days ago. It booted right
up as described and I connected and all worked fine. Then I
installed Debian as decribed at
'http://www.cyrius.com/debian/kirkwood/sheevaplug/install.html' to
a USB flash drive. Also no problems everything works fine. Now I
want to move the os to a USB harddrive.

Martin notes on his site that USB support is a "little flakey". I
agree. I have had quite a few problems with my sheevaplug. Try
adding a reset to the bootcmd so that if it fails, it will retry
until success


setenv bootcmd ‘setenv bootargs $(bootargs_console); run
bootcmd_usb; bootm 0×00800000 0×01100000; reset’

Great, that got me past that, next hurdle

I think your problem may be here:

ALERT!  /dev/disk/by-uuid/b29e5aa2-0978-4acc-ac1b-0025cd403a80 does
not exist.  Dropping to a shell!

If you moved from a USB flash drive to a SATA disk, then the disk UUID
will have changed. You need to update fstab to reflect that.

I fixed the fstab. I think the ramdisk has the uuid of the flash hard coded. I am looking for info to rebuild it.
