Default remove usb external drive with 11.04 installed

Hi,
I am dual booting 10.04 with an external drive (internal drive in a
caddy mains powered) with 11.04 installed.
I have acquired a Western digital drive (usb powered) that I am trying
to replace the mains powered drive, so unplugged
it, and installed 11.04 on the usb powered drive. Now nothing will boot
unless I re-plug in the mains powered drive.
Menu on boot shows list of available to boot, but with old external
drive unplugged, gives message can't find etc.


ubuntu 10.04 edit grub menu.1st in Google only gives info on Grub2, (no
menu.1st file)


My menu.1st file has no notation for either of the external drives (below)
All installed 10.04 kernels only showing, df in terminal shows drives
as sda1 sdc1 and sdb1 (listed in that order)

Could someone help me in how I can remove Grub menu entries for the
external drives, and I will re-install 11.04 on the

usb powered drive.
Many thanks in advance.
Take care
Winton
