Question Help ! LILO prints only LI after Ghosting hard drive

Hi all !

Please, help me with the following problem. I have an old laptop (Inspiron 7500) with dual boot of Win98SE and Linux Mandrake which I installed 5 years ago. Today I used Norton Ghost to copy my old (20G) hard drive to a new one (60G). After I put a new one as a main, LILO stops after printing LI only.

What went wrong ? is it somehow related to 1024 Cil limit ? I heard new versions of LILO don't have this limitation. Or it's something else ? Please, advice.

Thanks a lot

You'll have to boot off a CD and speficy your root filesystem at boot time then rerun lilo. If you can't boot from your root, mount your root filesystem after you've booted. Then chroot to the mount and then rerun lilo.
