I had Arch running perfectly using /dev/sdb1 (versus Disk Label or UUID) and decided to do a update. After the Update I can't boot
to a running system, and I get this error message:
ERROR: Unable to find root device /dev/sdb1
You are being dropped into a recovery shell.
Is there an easy way to convert to UUID or Disk Label since the latest Upgrade doesn't allow me to continue to use /dev/sdb1 ??
I'd prefer not to have to rebuild both USB Flash Drives to get functional systems.
Any Help is greatly appreciated.

Check your grub and read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/UUID#By-uuid

Thanks. I followed the instructions and both USB Flash Drives are booting and working. WHEW!
I am sure glad I didn't have to start from scratch.
Please remember to mark the thread as solved.
