    /meda/drive_name???

    When setting up mount points for drives in Ubuntu as of 10.04 do we still use /media or do we use /dev or something else?

    This --link-- from askubuntu.com should answer your question and includes links to further information as to why the change to /media/$USER/ from /media/ was made. Apparently the changes were made in Quantal 12.10 when udisks2 was introduced.

    Basically the normal usage in Ubuntu is now /media/$USER/<drive-name>.
    ...Ubuntu as of 10.04...
    Is that a typo? Do you mean 18.04 or 19.04 there? Lucid 10.04 is a very long dead, end-of-life, release.

    It was a typo, 19.04...

    So when installing and setting up a Storage drive instead of mounting it as /media/Storage it would be /media/$USER/Storage... Maybe, (hopefully) that's why I can't get it to boot when the instal is done.

    I usually manually mount to /media/$USER/Storage just to maintain consistency with what is automatically mounted by the system, I think it is still possible to use /media/Storage for manual mounts, though have never really tried it myself. I can't see offhand why doing such a mount would stop the boot process though .
