Host system Ubuntu 8.10
I am experiencing problems moving a working installation between machines.
Here's how I built the system:
On machine A
Partition disk & unstall Ubuntu
Remove disk and install on machine B
Make this bootable
Machine B is now dual boot Ubuntu (on sda1) and LFS on sda3
Move this disk back to Machine B
Ubuntu boots ok
Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
VFS Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy
Cannot open root device "sda3" or unknown-block (2,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown
[a blank 'list]
The above error messages have been copied from hand written notes so
there may be the occasional typo.
However, the other boot option - Ubuntu boots OK
If I remove the disk from machine A and attach it to machine B it is
dual boot Ubuntu / LFS
I have the feeling that I am missing somethin *very* elementary but I
don't know what it is.
(I have, by the way, experimented with various options at the GRUB
command line, but nothing works).
All comments / suggestions will be welcome.
