View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Problem with boot sequence (2 HDDs)

November 13th, 2008, 10:21 PM

I have 2 hard drives - one with Ubuntu and one with Mythbuntu, however, I want Mythbuntu to be the primary boot disk.

Unfortunately, the Ubuntu disk boots first and I can't see how to change it.

I've tried changing the SATA cables round, so it doesn't seem to be determined by the SATA socket on the motherboard.

I've also checked the BIOS and I can the sequence there reflects the boot sequence, but there's no option to change it.

I can manually change it when booting up, but that's no good, as I need Mythbuntu to boot up when I'm not there (and record TV).

Any ideas how to correct this?

You might have a mix of SATA and IDE drives.
Take a look at this thread:

No, definitely 2 SATA drives.
