Okay, at boot prompt, (grub prompt? with a grub> ? ), type
search -f /vmlinux

check output, (as example here, say...hd0,3 and hd2,1)

Then type....
linux (hd2,1)/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdc1 ro
initrd (hd2,1)/initrd.img
boot

more clarifications........need this at root=/dev/sdc1 above
(hd1,1) is sdb1
(hd2,1) is sdc1
(hd3,1) is sdd1

When booted, at terminal
sudo update-grub
check if changes is effected at /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Good luck - Goh Lip
