I am booting from a Puppy Linux USB Flash drive so that I can tar the primary partition of the hard drive. I see sda2 through to sda15, sdb1 to 15 (sdb1 is USB boot disk), sdc1 to 15, sdd1 to 15, sde1 to 15, etc. But I do not see sda1.
When I boot normally (not with the flash drive), I do see sda1, as well as 2 & 5
Why am I not seeing sda1 when booting from flash drive?
Also would like to know why I am seeing a multitude of other sd_'s which are not there when booting normally.
