Your version of Red Hat Linux is not supported, besides their is not such creature named Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-43.7.legacybigmen). I do understand the you really meant that you have kernel-2.4.20-43.7legacybigmen install on a Red Hat Linux 7.X system, but the OS is DEAD
, all support ended nearly a year ago now.
Suggestion get a modern supported version of Linux, if price is an issue and you want to stay with the Red Hat 'family' then use CentOS;
So many questions need to be answered, to start with; Do the partitions match up on both systems?? What filesystem are the partitions??? What steps in detail did you do??
As a possible solution try re-cloning the partitions using the one system that is working. Remove the hard drive(s) from the 'cloned' system and use the SystemRescueCD and use gnuparted along with gparted to create and copy the partitions. When done move the hard drives back to the 'clone' system.
