Plugged New SATA Drive in, Can't Boot
I plugged a SATA drive into one of the free ports on my motherboard, and now I can't boot.
I can get to emergency mode and even run "startx" to get to the desktop, but that's just as the root user
This drive didn't have any OS on it; it was just an EXT4 with data.
Long story short, I can't remember which drives were plugged into which ports. But I do know that I now have my SuSE disk in the first SATA port. There are no other OS's in this system.
A friend had mentioned that I could refer my partitions by UUID instead of /dev/sda notation, and I found a thread here that shows how to do it:
[SOLVED] how to use UUID on fstab and grub
...but the thing that confuses me is that I don't actually see any mention of /dev/sda partitions in /etc/fstab. Do I add them in manually, only as their UUIDs, and convert the other /dev's to UUIDs?
