Moved my Hard Drive, now need HELP!
I had a compaq with a 120 GB hard drive. 50 MB for Windoze and 70 MB for Mandrake 9.2
I got a new computer, so I just popped out the hard drive, and slid this one in the new machine.
LILO still comes up fine, but any attempt to go into Linux gets a "kernel panic", no init found. I assume this is due to the fact that the HD was hda in the old machine, and is now hdd in the new machine. I have tried passing commands at the lilo prompt (linux init=/dev/hdd5) but that doesn't work either.
I made a Tom's Root boot, and I can see my files, if I mount with a type of ext3. I edited my lilo.conf, reran lilo, and I get an error about a "read only" disk. Even though I have mounted rw.
I am ready to re-install and kiss everything good bye. Can someone help?
