Hi again,

Another newbie question :oops:

I have created an image of an IPCOP box using Norton Ghost (drive-Image) and then tried to transfer the image to an identical box (image - Drive). When trying to boot the new pc, an error scrolls on the screen something like Kernal Panic rebooting!?!

Both PC are Identical (mini itx dual nic)

Any Ideas?

Thanks

J

Are you absolutely sure that both motherboards and all devices plug-in or on-board i.e. NICs, graphics, etc are identical?

If this is the case, you may want to check that the BIOS settings on the source PC are identical to those on the destination PC.

All identical mate, including bios settings.

tried copying several times and used different media and drives.

Also tried another pc (identical to rule out memory/hdd etc, get same result: loads of error messages (to many to read before reboot)

last line reads: kernal panic: VFS: unable to mount root FS on 03:44

:?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

Thanks

Have you tried the image on the same PC?

Have done and it does the same.

Done a bit of research and figured out its GRUB that is the problem. When dropping the image on to a disk, it apparently causes GRUB to "forget" where the installation is?!?

Symantec say this is not a problem with Ghost 8.x onwards, but i beg to differ!

A way to fix it is:
To make the destination computer bootable, run the Linux GRUB boot loader utility to reinstall the boot loader:
Start the computer from the Linux rescue disk.
Log in as "root" (without the quote marks).
Run the GRUB boot loader. This displays the GRUB prompt, grub>
Type:

find /boot/grub/stage1

This will prompt GRUB to display the location of the GRUB boot files. For instance, GRUB might display (hd0,1) where hd0 represents the first hard drive in the computer (either IDE or SCSI) and the ",1" represents the partition where the /boot/grub/stage1 file is located. In this example, the stage1 file is located on the second partition of the first hard drive (where drive and partition numbering start at 0).
Type the word root, followed by the location of the file from the previous step:

root (hd0,1)

The file location, (hd0,1) may be different on your computer.
Type:

setup (hd0)

This will write the boot loader to the Master Boot Record on the first hard drive on the computer

All I need to do now is find a Linux rescue disk!???!

Good work, codiac! It appears that Ghost did not image the MBR. I wonder if it's a selectable option. Has anyone come across this before?

Re: Linux rescue disk
You could use knoppix or your preferred Linux Live CD.
