Kernel Panic on mirroring HDD
Iam trying to mirror my HDD on Debian Sarge 2.4 ..Ive used G4L startup disks..and knoppix startup with dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb to mirror my hdd from hda to hdb "hda is 40 GB and hdb is 40GB"..because hda is giving out strange voices so I wana be prepared when it fails...the backup process itself works quite well..but when it finishes I unplug hda and try to boot from hdb ..it starts normally grub loads and I boot the system but after a few moments I get the following error:
pivot_root: No Such file or directory
/sbin/init: 432: cannot open
dev/console: No such file Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
Note: I have to point out that i did not partition hdb , since Iam under the impression that dd writes the hdd bit by bit..thus it writes the partition table amongst others...
