Subject: [gentoo-user] sata disk assignment mismatch...
Date: Sat, 16 Jan 2010 14:00:23
1 Hi, I have strange problem with sata-disks names/numbering:
3 Until now, I had 2 sata-disk and one sata-dvdrw, attached
4 to positions marked as "sata1", "sata2" and "sata3"
5 in motherboard-manual, and detected as follows:
7 Mobo: drive: system:
8 sata1 160GB /dev/sda
9 sata2 160GB /dev/sdb
10 sata3 dvdrw /dev/sdc
11 sata4 (none)
13 Now I installed one more sata-disk, attached to "sata4"
14 position on mobo. But this changed the way how other
15 disks are detected:
17 Mobo: drive: system:
18 sata1 160GB /dev/sdb
19 sata2 160GB /dev/sdc
20 sata3 dvdrw (not_detected)
21 sata4 500GB /dev/sda
23 I tried to switch cables, attached that new 500gb disk
24 into sata1/sata2/sata3/sata4 connectors, but it is still
25 the same! This last disk is always detected by system
26 as /dev/sda, no matter in which connector I attach
27 its cable. And my system does not want to boot because
28 devices in /etc/fstab does not correspond now with disk
29 names (what was /dev/sda1 before, is now /dev/sdb1, etc.).
31 Strange thing, in bios-screen devices are detected
32 correctly, the last disk as "Fourth SATA drive"...
34 How can I fix this mess? How can I force this last
35 disk to be /dev/sdd?
