Re: Re: Dual boot on Dell X300
have two drives, /dev/hda that holds Etch (/dev/hda1) and /dev/sda that
holds Sarge (/dev/sda1). Both drives have swap space and grub and fstab
have the correct entries. Grub is installed on the MBR of /dev/hda and
the menu.lst resides in /boot/grub/.
I'm curious here. Etch is on an IDE drive and Sarge is on a USB drive?
Also, when you installed Sarge on the sda1 drive did it not boot
properly immediately after the installation? If so, when did it stop
Check your BIOS settings to make sure USB boot is at the top of the boot
Yes, that is correct, Etch is on /dev/hda1 and Sarge is on /dev/sda1
which is controlled by USB. I won't go into the details of why I did
Sarge did not boot properly immediatly after the install and in fact
never booted on sda1.
The BIOS settings have the USB boot at the top of the boot sequence.
I also tried replacing the line root=/dev/sda1 in menu.lst by
root=/dev/hdb1 without success.
