    Boot Problem - Running off USB Stick - can't mount

    Hi Ubuntu-ers

    I created a USB stick for booting my Pro-liant microserver following this guide - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...8#post12250188

    I also had a 250gb drive and a 3TB drive and everything was just lovely.

    Then I added a 4tb drive, I added lines to the fstab and an auto start command

    fstab

    proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /media/250GB_ ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,locale=en_GB.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /media/3TERA1 ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,locale=en_GB.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/sdb2 /media/3TERA2 ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,locale=en_GB.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/sdc2 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/sdc3 /home ext2 defaults 0 2
    /dev/sdc1 /windows vfat utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1
    /dev/sdc4 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/sde1 /media/T4P1 ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,locale=en_GB.UTF-8 0 0
    /dev/sde2 /media/T4P2 ntfs-3g defaults,nosuid,nodev,locale=en_GB.UTF-8 0 0

    Start-up
    udisks --mount /dev/sde

    The Problem I am having is whenever I reboot I get an error on
    /Windows - skip
    /home - skip
    Hang.

    I can't get booted up and logged in unless I remove the T4 drive, removing the T4 drive changes the error to /T4P1 - Skip T4P2 Skip
    then its ok.

    As this is a server I dont want to have a monitor attached but with these problems thats not possible.

    Any ideas whats wrong?

    Thanks

    PS. I hope that makes sense

    Re: Boot Problem - Running off USB Stick - can't mount

    It looks like you are using device not UUID to mount partitions. But the entire reason for changing to UUIDs was to avoid the kind of issue you are having.

    I find with my system that drives regularly change drive letter. I did not realize until later but I skipped a port on motherboard. So sda is always sda, but if I reboot with a flash drive in it becomes sdb and every other drive is one letter later. But if I plug in flash drive it normally is sde. But I do not have any mount issues as I use UUIDs.

    sudo blkid -c /dev/null -o list

    better to use example from this:

    Mount & edit fstab from Morbius1 - suggest using templates instead. Post #6
