howto copy to another hard drive


Hi.

On hda1 i have installed fc3 now i want to copy this system to hdc1 to reinstall grub and then to move hdc on another pc and to try to boot.

How can i copy all data from hda1 to hdc1 on the fly with /proc .. and with all files to can boot with hdc on another pc ?

Do you have another idea how can i copy this system to hdc system ?

hda size != hdd size


Thanks much!

If the disks are really identical a simple dd operation will do. Boot using knoppix and run: # dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdc

This will take time, every sector is copied from one disk to the other. More advanced operations are possible as well with dd.
