migrating Debian GNU/Linux Etch to second SATA drive
I tried to migrating from the first to second SATA drive My Debian
Etch OS with Gparted.
I copied the /, /usr, /var, swap, /tmp, /home partitions of the system
to the second SATA: sdb with Gparted.
Then I tried to set up grub to boot this Debian system from the first
SATA drive sda, and did the following:
- boot the install CD of the Etch Netinstall
- at prompt use expert
- detecting disks
- did not disk partition
- run a shell
Here I follow the mini howto:
mount -t ext3 /dev/discs/disc1/part1 /mnt
# this is the / partition of the sdb
mount -t ext3 /dev/discs/disc1/part2 /mnt/usr
# this is the /usr partition of the sdb
mount -t proc proc /mnt/proc
mount -t sysfs sys /mnt/sys
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
chroot /mnt /bin/bash
Error: /dev/scsi/host1/bus0/target0/lun0/disc does not have any
corresponding BIOS drive.
I can't here as root to use nano because of the bterm error. I did the
following to get some editor, namely mcedit:
I can to use here mcedit, but with difficulties. Still can to edit
But, I can't to install grub to boot sdb root from the sda MBR.
Any advices will be appreciated!
