Description Alexandre Oliva 2003-01-01 21:52:06 UTC
Even if I choose advanced boot loader options and tell the installer that hdc
comes before hda in the boot sequence, it doesn't offer me an option to install
the boot sector on /dec/hdc (only /dev/hda).  Even though I thought it might end
up installing the boot sector on /dev/hdc anyway, it did not, so I ended up with
a system that couldn't be booted, and /etc/grub/devices.map had (hd0) for hda
and (hd1) for hdc, which is exactly the converse of what I specified in the
configuration screen, and grub.conf was full of references to hd1 for partitions
that should be in hd0.

If I change the boot order, this should be relected in devices.map, grub.conf
and also in the options offered for where to install the boot sector.

This works for me here.  I go to advanced boot loader options and move hdb up by
clicking the up arrow and things change to reflect that.

I must have done something stupid such as selecting the disk but not moving it
up.  It does work, indeed.
