That was my first thought, so I thought that I had mirrored the fstab
settings. I'd missed the fact that on the problem machine I still had
/dev/sdb1 instead of the UUID, so I modified that. No luck. After a
Windows boot & then reboot into Hardy I still get: Unclean shutdown,
checking drives - /dev/sdb1. sdb1 is the hardy drive, sda1 is the
Windows drive.  I'll poke around in the log files and see if I can
figure out what is going on. Thanks.
