My freind’s machine lost it’s Boot Drive. The problem is that he has 7 HDD devices on the machine and to get the boot device (small 160G HDD) to be on /dev/sda is an absolute nightmare!
Ok, so how did I get to install GRUB to /dev/sdd? Easy, follow the steps when you get the SDA failure on Installation:
- Ctrl + Alt + F2
- rm /dev/sda
- ln /dev/sdd /dev/sda
- Ctrl + Alt + F1
- … retry installation of grub bootloader.
ps: This is IF the drive is displayed as SDD. It could be any of the SDn devices…
