Summary: GRUB does not work when using USB storage to
boot/install from
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: Alpha 0plus
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Using mkbootdisk to create a bootable USB memory stick. Using a USB external
harddrive which contains all files.
The install goes through OK until the first boot, where GRUB only shows
"GRUB" in the upper left corner.
I tried to change the settings in the GRUB configuration during install but to
no avail.

Changed from
(hd2) /dev/sda
(hd0) /dev/sdb
(hd1) /dev/sdc

(hd0) /dev/sda
(hd1) /dev/sdb
(hd2) /dev/sdc

Then changed the kernel and init lines accordingly.
Also changed where GRUB is installed from sdb to sda2

Using a USB memory stick but installing from an FTP source, the above works,
but not when the installation source is an external USB drive.
