I had a debian 3.1 install that I tried to upgrade to 4.0. Now as it turns out the OS HDD (/dev/hda) has something seriously wrong with it so I need to replace the drive.
My concern is for the data I have on my LVM set up which is as follows:
/dev/hdc1 - LVM
/dev/hdd1 - LVM
/dev/hde1 - LVM
/dev/hdf1 - LVM
/dev/hdg1 - LVM
Here are some pics of lvdisplay + vgdisplay
Sorry for the blurryness of the above pics.Would it be safe to replace hda with a new HDD, and do a fresh install on that? If so how would I be able to keep the LVM data as it currently is?
Any help would be great as my last back up was 27/9/7 an I have since added more things which i dont have a copy of.
Many thanks for any info
