Hi I would like to link to this thread as an on going problem that I,m trying resolve. I have tried every combination with fstab & grub.cfg and installing grub. I can boot lfs if I put it as the only drive in laptop, But if i connect it as usb even as the only drive usb and set fstab grub.cfg as sda it will not load. I,m now thinking that I have missed something which lets it find usb drives. The laptop will boot from usb as there is another drive which boots. Need some help here plz
It will boot if it,s fitted in laptop, everything setup for sda works fine, if i fit it as the only drive but usb same setup it wont boot fdisk -l shows it as sda. I have selected make partition bootable with disk utility in Ubuntu but still no joy.
Hi drunna I did try all suggestions that I,m given. at the moment after going through I dont know how many web sites. Any way I have now tried booting from grub prompt, which dose find the vmlinux- file but get an error on "filesystem could not mount and kernel panic VFS fs on unkown block". This is the same errors I get when trying to boot it normally.
Bearing in mind it will boot when set on IDE of laptop.
I did recompile the kernel again checking for any sata drive stuff and usb stuff and ext4 fs stuff. So is this looking like a Grub problem or Kernel???
I have posted to lfs-support as well
