Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

About a month ago, I configured my /etc/fstab and added an external drive.

I don't need it anymore so I edited my /etc/fstab and removed the declaration line.

This morning I rebooted my development server and GRUB stopped with a warning that this drive was not available: do I wait, skip and manually recover??

What am I missing? What is it still seeing my external drive??

Running Ubuntu 11.04...
