rpil,

You are using the old IDE drivers which gives you names like /dev/hda1 but your fstab is written using /dev/sda1.
You get SCSI names like that from using the new libata IDE drivers under the SATA menu in the kernel.

You have
Code:
/dev/hda3 on /
but no /dev/hda1 mounted.

Test with
Code:
mount /dev/hda1 /boot

Do you get an error on booting about checking the root filesystem ... "Press Ctrl-D to continue or give the root password to fix" ?

If the mount command works and you can see the content of /boot, change all the /dev/sda in fstab to /dev/hda

Thanks, Neddy, I'll try it and tell you. :wink:
I must say, that with the live CD of Iloog I'm able to see the /boot partition and by the chrooting method, change it. :wink:

Also, you should check your kernel, just to be sure that you use the new pata-sata method instead of the old ATAPI section.

Neddy,

The "mount" command worked fine, I changed the "sd" to "hd" in /etc/fstab and I was able to open the /boot/grub/menu.lst file, where I saw all the stuff:

Code:
drphibes drphibes # mount /dev/hda1 /boot
drphibes drphibes # nano /etc/fstab
drphibes drphibes # nano /boot/grub/menu.lst

I rebooted my box and the /boot partition is well mounted! I gave
Code:
nano /boot/grub/menu.lst

and it opened fine!
Thanks! :wink:
