Disk Order Question

I’m not sure, but I think I may be having a disk order issue related to my installation woes.

When I boot the installer, it sees /dev/sda and /dev/sdb on my 3ware disk controller (both multi TB raid 5 arrays). It also sees /dev/sdc, which is the target disk for the installation. The install runs fine (5.11, BTW) and tells me to reboot. My reboot fails.

If I go into grub and do a find /grub/grub.conf it returns (hd0,0), not the (hd2,0) that the installer used to setup grub.conf, which indeed says root is /dev/sdc1 (hd2,0)

My best guess is that when it tries to boot itself, my target disk for the install appears to be (hd0,0) or /dev/sda1 instead of (hd2,0) or /dev/sdc1 which is what the installer saw it as.

What is my way forward for this. Is there a way to make the machine see my 3ware disks as /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd ? (like they used to be, according to my old /etc/fstab). Is there a way to make the install DVD see my target disk as /dev/sda and the 3ware disks as /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd?

thanks,
