Restoring RedHat Enterprise Server x64 5.4


Hello people,
at work place I have an HP ProLiant DL580 with RedHat Enterprise Server 5.4 x64. Today I cloned this machine using clonezilla.

What I would like to do is restore the image to VMWare machine for personal purpose (I cannot perform tests on production machine). But after restoring on VMWare I got "Kernel Panic". That's normal due to different hardware.

Now, is there a way to remove the Kernel Panic and correctly boot the machine? I ask our tech department for the RedHat CD1 to enter the "linux rescue" enviromnent, then try to re-read the hardware list with
# chroot /mnt/sysimage
# kudzu

Do you think this is the right way? Is there any other restore way?

Thanks for your time!

It would be cleaner to use VMware Converter (maybe VMware Vsphere Converter now), it will do all the driver stuff for you - manual conversion is not fun.

Thanks for reply kbp,
do you mean redo the disk clone from scratch using VMWare converter?
