Re: Hard drives changed sdx designations... should I be worried?
I have a mix of pata, sata drives in one of my rigs and get this changing behavior.
I also see this if I have a card reader or USB hub attached.
Yes it's disconcerting at times, I try to not boot with them attached and to mount later to avoid drives getting skewed.
I had big problems with grub before uuid's was implemented for booting, but I always check what my system is seeing as drive designations before I do any command line operations re: writing to drives and partitions.
Pay attention and you should be okay.
