Mandriva - Not Booting After Moving Hd, kernel panic
I have just installed Mandriva 2006 - trying to get rid of all the Windows-related hair-pulling - and (almost) everything seemed to work OK; I had installed it in a 120GB HD, located in my primary slave channel - thus it was called hdb.
Now, I have to move the hard disk to another channel, the secondary slave (hdd). I tried just moving it there and booting from it, GRUB would load and show the usual list, but it wouldn't accept any selection.
I then edited the GRUB commands, changing every occurrence of hdb to hdd, and now it tries to load, but then fails after a few seconds, with a Kernel panic, giving an error like "could not synch, try init= option" or something like that. Reading some of the lines of text, it looks like it's looking for some 'hdb/something' folders and obviously can't find them.
What can I do to fix the situation? I really wouldn't want to reinstall everything from scratch, now that I had set everything up like I wanted!
Thanks in advance for any help,
