What are some tips for debugging a machine Fedora 27 was just
installed on but after a reboot you're greeted by the message "No
Could be that when you installed, your hard drive was something like
/dev/sdb, and your installation boot media was /dev/sda. But after
your installation boot media isn't being booted from, the main drive is
/dev/sda. Or in grub's parlance, hd0, hd1, etc.
That kind of thing is avoided by not referring to devices in such a
generic way (using labels, UUIDs, etc.), and I thought the installer
did that by default, these days. But occasionally something will have
taken the simplistic approach of just referring to whatever's currently
in /dev/sda1, et cetera. And that will depend on your machine always
enumerating your drives in the same manner.
