moving linux hdd from one system to another
I will be doing the following to see if I can come up with a recovery procedure.
I will be installing RH9 on a system. The actual specs are not really relavant, but for argument sake, it will be a single P4 system with a fairly basic hardware config. I will then remove the Hard Drive containing the Linux os, and placing it in a completely different system. The hardware on the other system is considerably different. It will be a dual Xeon system with many different hardware components.
Now, I do not expect Linux to boot without any problems. Obviously, all of the new hardware in the system is going to cause a ton of grief. In fact, I donít expect Linux to even boot at all.
The reason Iím doing this is because I will be building a new server soon with completely different specs. I will then want to move my hard drive from the old machine to the new one with all of the new and different hardware. I figure I should practice this before trying to do it on my actual file server.
Any help is appreciated.
