    Re: update-grub doesn't boot new kernels

    o.k., started the report.

    for the grub.cfg, it seems like a bit much to just paste here, so:

    You can see that the later kernels are listed.

    Re: update-grub doesn't boot new kernels

    Nope. It really is /dev/sdb -- I already replied to you with the fdisk information earlier in this thread. Mount shows it is /dev/sdb too, so looking to change it somewhere it is not won't help me.
