Ubuntu 11.04 hd0 out of disk boot error

Link to this post 19 May 11

Due to the current kernels that are used by ubuntu and the error message talking about hd0, it sounds like either grub is configured to read from hd0 (which is now called sdo) or the initrd image for ubuntu is referencing hd0. If the current installation has been upgraded using the the standard release upgrade function in the update manager then this all makes sense.

If that's so... how on earth could they forget about something this *essential*???

Anyway... that's what happens by using software that it's still subject to changes in a, supposedly, stable distro

I have seen several issues such as this with ubuntu users in the past. But the other cases were from users that manually modified their grub entries, which could explain why the automatic script did not catch and correct the changes.

As with anything else in computers, the software can only do what it has been programmed to do. The programmers cannot anticipate all user changes, so cannot be expected to always work at 100%.

Nor I'm saying that they should ;)

The thing is that this looks like the *one* thing to check if you update the grub in any installation.
