stressful software booting problem


Alright, I am a noob but am trying to learn. Here's my situation:
I have a mini ITX computer that runs a software that I have been trying to clone to another hard drive as back up. When I do clone it, it is the exact same copy down to every byte. When I try to boot from the cloned hard drive, it starts booting, then displays some text:

key.cc:885: signer key 'CC:0B:14:2D:C3:74:3C:9C:02:A2:AF:42:BE:F2:6F:0F: D5: D8:2A' not loaded
bio_stream.cc:338:

Then is says some of the files are not found including a encryption signer key not found.

I do no know the next step I need to take. Is this becasue it is running off a different hard drive? I do not understand a bzImage too well, but does it have anything to do with that file?

Any advice would be appreciated.

thank you

Welcome, he who knows that he knows nothing has all wisdom... By the way, whe're all here to learn something...

Okay, yes, different hard drive, and YES: different stuff-around-the-harddrive. Unless you're using two super-identical (down to the last bit and bolt) systems.

At install, the installed "tuned" the OS in for the target system, the "other" drive is not on that same target system...hence the signer key not getting loaded...

So, as a next stitch in the knitting: just what are you trying to do? Maybe there's a better/more suited way to accomplish what you're trying to do, here...

I am trying to run the software from the original hard drive, which is a 40 pin IDE 512mb, to a 2gb IDE hard drive. I have another 512mb IDE, but I figured I would just come across the same problem on any hard drive I would clone. So if being a different hard drive is the case, is there a way to modify something to make it run of a hard drive other than the original?

thank you

Well, that's called "ghosting" and can be done with dd, or clonezilla...

In practice, it is possible, though perhaps not ideal. If it is the data alone you're after (actually, anything except the OS itself) that can easily be "cloned" - the OS is the engine, it will expect certain things from the new surroundings...
The strategy to adopt is to clone path settings, and the FULLY/quallified/path to te software, just make sure shared libraries are present as well...just rambling here

A intersting task at best. I'd like to see where this ends up

I have tried clonezilla and ghost4linux but i have not tried DD. I have had more luck with ghost4linux, but still it seems to not make an exact copy of the hard drive itself, just of the partitions and information. I have been about this problem for some time, and hopefully someone on here can provide an answer.
