Hello, Sean. Thanks for replying.
I tried your suggestion, but it can't even start linux in single mode.
I think that there is a mount problem, but I have double checked the fstab 
file seated on the backup drive and it seems fine to me. Therefore I can't 
understand what prevents the mount to be made properly. Would the vmlinuz or 
initrd images be dependent of the md or hd filesystem type or are they 
exactly the same for both ? Else what other file should I touch that 
involves the mounting operation ?
