A dist-upgrade often do not overwrite or rebuild a correct menu.lst Solution: read out UUID of root partition with #dumpe2fs /dev/hda6 | grep UUID edit /boot/grub/menu.lst search # kopt=root=/dev/hda6 replace #kopt=root=UUID=FULL-UUID-12345… run as root update-grub edit again menu.list to check.. Check /etc/fstab and replace /dev/hda to […]
