In an old laptop, I need to boot an external hard drive that the BIOS does
A different computer is giving errors, while booting a SATA hard drive. I
was told that "the proper modules are not being used in the initrd", but I
have no idea how to fix that.
I guess a live CD would be useful, but how do I get the live CD to boot the
hard drive? Also, should it have the same architecture (I386/AMD64), release
(Etch/Lenny), and Linux kernel version, as the hard drive?
