I've been dual booting with grub on hda for quite some time now and have had no issues with it (XP / SuSE 9.2). Recently I decided to try a new distro (PCLOS) and I installed SuSE 9.3. These are on two seperate drives. Each drive has it's own boot loader and works perfectly IF the IDE primary master is plugged into it. If the other distro is plugged into the slave on the same cable it crashes on a kernel panic. I want to be able to select the drive to boot to in the BIOS instead of having all distros in one loader on the primary drive. I have a MSI mb and it uses the cable select method for drives. I also have my drives jumped for cable select.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.... Thanks in advance.
