Got some new parts today and decided to rebuild my main computer. Among the parts were a Crucial 240gb SSD.

I boot from the live-dvd and partition 200gb of the SSD as "/", and put "/home" on my trusty old 1tb SATA HDD.

Install seems to go fine, minus some hiccup where the reboot doesn't happen automatically, but I am immediately dumped to a grub rescue prompt with the message "error: no such partition" when I attempt to boot.

Any help or pointers welcome.

The reboot-hiccup happens when DVD is ejected, I get about a million of these:

[ various-numbers.various-numbers ] hub3-4.1:1.0: connect-debounce failed, port 2 disabled

and am finally forced to press reset.

The connect-debounce is your USB ports disabled.

Do yourself a favor, install everything on the ssd, then follow this guide to migrate it to the other drive: Moving /home to Another Partition

Hope I helped!
