View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hard drives out of order!

May 31st, 2010, 06:51 AM
I have a computer with one IDE and four SATA hard drives.

With Ubuntu 9.10, the IDE is labeled sda and the four SATAs are labeled sdb, sdc, sdd, sde.

With Ubuntu 10.04, all of a sudden the IDE is sdc and the SATAs are sda, sdb, sdd, sde!


How do I change it back? I understand it may have something to do with grub2 and drivemap but I can't find the right documentation on this.

And why does it matter? Does it interfere with working properly? If when you installed 10.04 it wants to call the disks with slightly different names, that's no real problem.
