Thanks a lot Simon. This file seems to be the template used for the menu.lst.
In our blade running on SLES 11. I see that the first disk used for boot is (hd1,4) .
title SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 - 3.0.101-0.21
kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/md1 console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 splash=silent crashkernel= showopts numa=off noht
The partition 4 is taken because we have /boot mounted on /dev/sda5 and /dev/sdb5. But, Is there some reason as to why it would take hd1 instead of hd0 for the disk.
Don’t know if this is relevant, but, Our blade has the following disk layout. It uses mirroring raid setup. All are on extended partitions:
/dev/md0 (sda5 sdb5 ) /boot
/dev/md1 (sda6 sdb7) / partition
/dev/md3 (sda7 sdb7) swap
/dev/md2 (sda8 sdb8) /var
