Grub and Debian Stretch Installation [Solved]

Postby larry77 » 2017-10-09 07:06

Dear All,
Maybe a trivial question (there are tons of google hits, but I have not found what I am looking for).
I have a workstation with 3 hard disks where I am trying to install Debian.
Let's say that the devices are seen as sda, sdb and sdc.
For reasons I am not going to discuss, sda contains legacy data and needs to be mounted as is, sdb will contain the OS and sdc is to be used for other data.
Everything is fine during the installation, I then install grub on sdb (which has the OS), but then my machine does not boot.
How can I address that?
Many thanks

Have you tried selecting the second drive from the F12 boot menu? or changing BIOS settings to boot that drive first?

Ops!
Maybe the solution was soo much simpler than I had thought.
I'll try that and post the result.

Indeed it was just a matter of specifying the boot order of the hard disks.
