2013-11-05 15:55:57 -0500 answered a question I don't want to use disk UUID on Fedora 19. but how?

Thanks for the answers and comments. Actually there is 0% chance to add / remove / exchange hard disk for my situation. So, I don't worry about device name getting changed after reconfiguration.

I'm making a small USB based installer which is booting by itself and preparing hard disk partitions and formatting. And I am copying the root file system which is created on my build server to another computer which is being configured by the USB based installer.

In this case, I need to copy the Kernel image and initramfs image to the computer which is prepared by USB installer. But since the initramfs has been prepared from the build server which is not the computer actually running the kernel and initramfs, the UUID information which initramfs has and UUIDs which are from actual hard disk of the computer which will run the kernel and initramfs are mismatched and boot does not proceed. And finally it dropped to the Dracut prompt.

I think if I don't use the UUID scheme at all, this mismatch will not happen. Do you think it is wrong understanding? If so, please correct me.

And that's why modifying the /etc/fstab using the actual disk name does not help.

Hi All,

I've just installed fedora 19 after long time I've been using fedora 11. And it seems the using UUID for the disk partitions are default on fedora 19, but is there any way not use the UUID or disable the UUID for the disk partitions?

Please give me some comments about how to do this. Thanks!
