    grub boot uuid incorrect?

    hi there,

    after fresh install of 11.10, system boots to grub rescue prompt only with message 'UUID doesn't exist for xxx-xxx-xx' etc...

    I've check the grub.cfg file and it has the correct entry listed for the location of /boot.. so i'm wondering where grub is getting this incorrect UUID from in the boot sequence?

    Anyone had similar issues to this?? Is there other points in grub i need to check other than /boot/grub/grub.cfg?

    Separate /boot confuses the issue a bit with standard desktops.
