OK, here's an update. I bought a new internal SATA controller card from
and just installed it. The PC won't boot from the HD. I get "Insert
System Disk and try again" (something like that). I can boot to the
LiveCD and see the HDs under /dev (/sda is my main OS disk and /sdb is
my storage drive for Myth).
I mount the sda1 partition since I know that's where my /boot partition
is. I can see the files, so I'm not really sure why the system can't
boot from the drive. I know that in my MB, there were options for the
Onboard SATA controller, but I disabled it since I figured that would
interfere with the new card.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I need to do to get the OS to boot
from the drive on this new card?
