Hi - and thanks in advance for any help!
I've been trying to clone my old 80Gb hard drive (which boots into Ubuntu) onto a partition in a larger 1Tb drive using dd.
I set up an 80Gb partition, marked it as 'bootable' and copied the entire device of the old drive to the new partition.
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb1 bs=100M
It won't boot at all!
If I copy the 80Gb onto the 1Tb drive without partitioning first, the computer boots from the drive no problem.... but I don't then have the partitions i want.
My question is what else do I need to do to make my partition bootable? I have no experience with Grub or Lilo as I have not seemed to need them so far...
