Thread: Moving HDs to different SATA ports

  1. #1

    Default Moving HDs to different SATA ports

    If you move the hd to another SATA port you can fix it with the repair utility on the install disk

    /Geoff
    Having problems with one disk and it seems like it may be the SATA port.

    if I move my boot drive to a different SATA port how can I fix my fstab and grub?

    Some entries seem to refere directly to the disk name and partition; I believe those will be unaffected. However, anything using something of the form /dev/sdX# where X is a letter and #is a number, how would I convert those to use the disk name format?

    @francisco1844,

    using YaST, go to "System >> Partitioner", choose the partition that you
    want to change, click "Edit" then click "Ftab Options" in pop up window.
    In "Mount in /etc/fstab by" options choose "Volume label".

    and please be careful with this one, read help in the left pane before
    you edit something else.
