salvaging an old install when its partition # changes
i had debian installed on hdb15 & merged the partitions before it so it became hdb13. (actually i deleted 4 & created 2).
i had googled & saw you can copy an install to a new partition & reconfigure grub & edit fstab to make it work. did that with this & booted to a cmd line cause something was still referencing the old partition.
i rechecked fstab, it was correct & looked at xorg.conf but no references there.
is this possible or is changing its partition # very different from copying to a new partition?
