5 It may well depend on your chipset configuration, number of actually connected
6 drives and bios boot settings. On my board, there are 2 PATA and 1 SATA
7 channels on the same controller. In linux kernel, PATA is hda and hdb, SATA
8 is hdc, no matter what drives are actually connected. When i migrated my
9 installation from PATA hda to SATA hdc, grub detected hda as hd0 and hdc as
10 hd1 before, but once I removed parallel drive, SATA become hd0 in grub (but
11 still hdc in linux), since it is first (boot) bios drive. So I needed to fix
12 grub config to hd0 and change a root= kernel parameter to hdc, since grub
13 insists hd0 should be hda even if there is no drive connected on PATA:
15 root (hd0,0)
16 kernel /boot/bzImage-2.6.10 root=/dev/hdc1
18 Also, I did grub setup on SATA MBS from booted grub shell, not in linux,
19 because what it sees is what it gets then.
21 Hope this may help you.
