I am a linux veteran, but first time i try Ubuntu (or Debian). Ubuntu 12.04.2 installed fine from the image, but I have started changing a few things around and I need some help.
I uninstalled grub and installed Lilo. On my first boot since, I get:

disk drive for / not ready or present
(s) Skip mounting it (m) enter maintenance shell (i) ignore
These are approximate, since I do not have /var/log/messages at this point. Strange is that if I enter Maintenance at this point, I find / mounted read-only and fine. I have tried
Maintenance and examining my installation from the liveCD, but nothing so far. All my drives are OK by e2fsck and UUID entries in /etc/fstab are verified and the same as the
working ones with grub. I have also used dpkg --config -a to no result. Lilo runs clean. Any clues appreciated.
