1 Hi all,
3 I noticed a strange thing.
4 I have a 250 Go M4 Crucial SSD on the first drive and 1To SATA HDD on the
5 second one.
6 Then, i switched to AHCI BIOS mode, then my device names were inverted (SSD
7 as sdb and HDD as sda)
8 It was not a problem as i use UUIDs.
9 With a live CD as SysRescueCD, grub (LEGACY) sees the SSD as hd1 ; i write
10 to SSD mbr with setup (hd1). So it's ok.
11 Now, if i want to boot Gentoo Desktop, i have to put hd0 in
12 /boot/grub/grub.conf
13 Have you an explanation about this behaviour ?
15 Thanks in advance
17 Cheers,
