Hi Andy .

Dont worry about your reply  ideas and comments  you are the height of
politeness compared with some on the lists not just this one either  so
dont worry

I have compared this machine with the laptop that is similar processor
ect and same partitioning  layout  , i can see no difference between
the 2 apart from the actual UUID of the partitions  i will have a play
with some of those suggestions shortly see what happens .

I have a feeling it may well be related to the latest util-linux and a
another that was changed at the big update i did  .

Watch this space   .

Of course noone else will offer any assistance  will they  EHhhhh!  

Pete .
