OK so you recall the Experts talking about the SD things being
changed at the whim of something. I will then send my Bug which will
explain what I am seeing and why it is so bad if your trying to
trouble-shoot a grub.conf. But I do see why you MUST use LABEL on F7.
Please clarify how you're choosing which device to boot.
BIOS or GRUB?
If GRUB, please show us your current configuration.
may confuse things, for instance, and may not be needed.
There was a long thread on this when F7 was in test. I
seem to recall that the final recommendation for a dual/multi
boot system was to put labels on all partitions (even the
swap can take a label) and use the labels in the grub.conf
file and the /etc/fstab file. This should produce consistent
results regardless of what SD gets assigned where.
I am 72 years old and like Linux, and have used it for over 10
years. I like F7 but it may not matter because after I make a bunch of
label's I may loose touch with what I have. It also says I will not be
happy with more than one hard drive.
Thank you for verification of my experience.
