I have been running Ubuntu as a dual boot with XP on a caddy. I also run XP in a VirtualBox guest. My last upgrade to Natty worked fine and automatically mounted all of my internal drives (13 partitions).
I have upgraded to 11.10 and, because it doesn't automatically mount all of my drives, I am having all sorts of problems. If I cold boot the machine, fdisk -l tells me the allocations to sda, sdd etc but, if I restart (warm boot), all of these allocations change. What was on sda is now on sdc and sdc is now sde and so on.
I want to (am running) Virtualbox with the vdi on what is sdc1 at boot up. At the moment, if I set up fstab to auto mount sdc1 with these settings and then restart, I get all sorts of errors. Is there any way to force LVM or whatever to maintain the allocations through a restart?
