Map a USB drive to one specific location and solve the “S to Skip” bug

… in a few steps ! (On Debian based distros)

1 – Use disk-manager or manually add a line like this one to your /etc/fstab file

UUID=8d7548c6-a4c3-49b1-9c08-82c9b90cdc98 /media/BLUELINE ext3 defaults 0 2

2 – (optional) In my case, the hardrive is slow to boot compared to the computer. I need to replace this special line in /etc/defaults/grub. The “rootdelay” option leaves 15 seconds more to the system before trying to mount devices

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="rootdelay=15 quiet"

then run

update-grub

3 – Reboot

4 – Enjoy ! (Was this simple or what ?)
