Booting Linux from Simpletech Portable hd
I have a question about a kernel panic in linux when trying to boot from a portable hd (see title). Now, I have no problem booting this distro (PCLOS) from my internal hd, but for some reason it will not boot from the portable hd.
The os installs fine (everything is on the drive), the bootloader installs fine (grub--the boot selection screen comes up), but when I choose to boot and turn silent splash off, i read kernel panic and it refuses to boot. The only two things i can think of is that the hd for some reason wont support running os's off it (maybe just for backup?), or the configuration for booting the kernel image is wrong, although I've tried different initdr settings and image settings.
