I rather think the operator is confused. First you need to look at what
your bios did to the original HD. Your results make me think your old HD
became another HD in the chain so it looks like /dev/sdb now when it was
/dev/sda when alone in the computer.
This is a rather unusual situation. I have a server running
fedora linux OS with a 650 Gb Seagate Barracuda Harddrive. Now I
wanted to mirror the server with an identical harddrive. When I
plugged my new harddrive in, I got the message:
"Reboot and select proper *boot* device or *insert boot media"
*It seems that because it's an identical harddrive (with not OS
though), the PC doesn't *see* which one is the correct boot harddrive.
Weird! If a plug a different harddisk than the one with the linux OS,
they system boots up. Any clues on how to fix this problem? *
Look at what you bios has done. If these are both IDE drives make
sure they are not on the same cable.
