    I try to add additional hard disk to my server for backup purpose, however when additing new hard disk, linux can't boot up and stop at "starting system logger:". I can't access to WHM too. However when I disable the hard disk on the BIOS, everything is back to normal.
    I'm using CentOS 3.5 x86_64 - WHM X v3.1.0 and WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-R82. Can anybody help.

    it might be that the new hdd is taken as the primary drive by the BIOS, and it must be searching the MBR there.

    did u check that ?

    The new hard disk is connected to SATA1 and existing hard disk at SATA0, by default the new hard disk will be 2nd hard disk. Is there any other setting require in Linux?
