relating to an external USB drive.
During boot-up of the previous 2.6.32-23-generic-pae kernel, I am prompted with the following message: -
The disk drive for /home/hayd/lenovo is not ready yet or not present
Continue to wait; or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery
which is precisely as one would expect.
However, following a recent upgrade to 2.6.32-24-generic-pae, this message is no longer displayed; instead, I am presented with a completely blank screen.
Having used the GRUB2 menu ( via the [Shift] key ) to boot back to the -23 kernel, I realised: -
Therefore, I'm now able to boot -24 and get past the exception, by hitting [S], but the message should be displayed in clear text.
It's my view that this is a bug introduced by the kernel update.
