Copying Linux to New HD - Grub Install Problem
I have an HD with mulitple partitions and multiple systems. I am going to make my own game machine, and what I wanted to do was copy everything from hda6 (my / drive) and hda7 ( my home drive). I formated the new drive as hda1 and hda5 is the swap (40 gig hd).
I mounted the drive onto the 2nd IDE channel (so it was hdb1 and hdb5), copied the hda6 partition, and then copied the hda7 partition to the /home directory on hdb1.
I modified the menu.lst in /boot/grub to hd(0,0) and the fstab accordingly on the new system.
However, no matter what, I keep running into grub errors. I chroot to the drive and run "grub-install --remap /dev/hdb" and that didn't work.
I went and installed the hd in the new system, and still had problems, so I booted off a cd-rom and did the same thing, but with /dev/hda now, and I keep getting stage1 file problems...
What am I doing wrong? Is there an easy fix?
