I've got Debian Lenny installed on an 80GB EIDE hard drive that's about
to ware out. I have a second hard drive that is a SATA drive that is
rather new and no signs of any problems.
I'm planning on using clonezilla 1.2.3-27 to clone the 80GB drive, with
my root / partition, to a new hard drive, a 160GB SATA drive. I came to
realize though that my 80GB is device hda, and the new SATA will be I
suppose sda. I thought that after the cloning I may just need to edit
the fstab file on the new 160GB SATA from hda to sda, and from the
current sda to sdb, etc., but I really don't know for sure.
So, my question is - am I on the right path, will this work? Or do any
of you have a better method to upgrade hard drives, under these
My current fstab file (on the 80GB EIDE) looks like this:
