Removing a Hard Drive

Hi I did an installation of SUSE 11.2 on a new SCSI hard drive.

Keeping the old hard drive separate.

I remembered there was some info on the old hard drive I wanted.

I added this to the system and mounted a partition. I then copied the data over. Then I umounted the partition rebooted the machine and removed the hard drive.

However the machine will now not boot without this hard drive even though its not mounted. Not sure what the error message im given means I think it could be trying to fchk it.

Do I need to do something more like remove /dev/sdd ?

Thanks Roger

This is a software issue. I have responded to your identical post in software. Kill this one.
