I have two sata drives, sda and sdb with the root partition on sdb. I
installed grub on sdb and made the following entries in
and ran update-grub.
Next I tried to boot the system and got the splash screen with my
kernels listed but then a message:
Error 23: Error while parsing number
I have tried using grub's line completion to find a correct entry for
groot. If I enter:
followed by a tab I get:
If I try groot=(hd
followed by a tab I get nothing.
Surely there must be many users booting from sata drives so there must
be a simple solution to my problem but a google search finds numerous
instructions for booting with grub but all the examples appear to be for
ide hard drives - that is groot=(hd0,0).
