Re: [PLUG] Finding grub

Sounds like your BIOS settings aren't granular enough to specify the controller. I don't think you have an option besides moving your grub install.

Hi all,

Not strictly a Linux question, but maybe someone else has run into this. I
just added a SATA drive to a system running from a single IDE drive. I have
now installed OSes on both the IDE drive and the SATA drive, but grub
remains on the IDE drive. However now on boot I get a hard drive error
message on boot, although keying enter then does bring up grub correctly.

I have played with all of the boot order settings in the BIOS, which allows
the selecting of hard drive order and drive type (floppy, CD/DVD, hard
drive, network) order. However no setting I have found avoids the drive
error message.

I could I suppose move grub to the SATA drive, but it seems to me it should
work as it is now configured.

Any ideas?
