I just installed Ubuntu Server 8.04 AMD64 and it will not load the GRUB at all. I suspect it might have something to do with the order of the disks not remaining constant. My boot drive can show up as sda, sde, or sdh. I think I may be able to get it to show up the same everytime if I don't change anything in the BIOS but after installation I want to disconnect the optical drive. I will also be putting a couple more drives in after I get it to boot up.
So what can I do to have the drive mapping remain constant for GRUB? I have seen a couple other threads about this same topic but no definitive answer yet.
